New opportunities for Russian students and academic staff to study, teach and train in Europe
 Ahead of the European Union's 2019 Call for Proposals for higher education institutions the National Erasmus+ Office in Russia organized the "Erasmus+ Information Day" at the State University of Management in Moscow.
The new Call, with a total budget of EUR 17 million dedicated to cooperation with Russia, will allow academic exchanges for more than 3,000 students and academic staff in the EU and Russia to study, teach and train, and will finance around 10 capacity building projects in Russia.
"Russia is the EU's first international cooperation partner in the area of higher education. We provide the highest number of academic mobility opportunities to Russia compared to other international partner countries", said Richard Burger, Head of the Science and Technology Section of the EU Delegation in Russia at the Erasmus+ Information Day in Moscow. "The EU wants more young people from Russia, EU Member States, and also from other countries of the world to benefit from exchange programmes in Europe", he added.
