A 3-year project of the European Commission's “Erasmus+” program entitled "Modernizing the master's program in industrial enterprise management for transition economies" was launched in Turkmenistan earlier this year. This is reported by the Neutral Turkmenistan newspaper.
“Erasmus+” is a program of the European Union aimed at promoting the modernization and sustainable development of the education system, vocational training, youth policy and sports. It provides financial opportunities for cooperation in all these areas, both between European countries (the so-called Program countries) and between European countries and partner countries around the world.
The project participants are the Turkmen state Institute of Economics and management, the Turkmen state Institute of Finance, the ANT technology Center, and the Academy of Sciences of Turkmenistan, which, in turn, acts as a direct coordinator of the project on the part of our country.
Leading universities in Italy, Slovenia, Kazakhstan and Tajikistan are also involved in the project.
The project is coordinated by the University of Santiago de Compostela of the Kingdom of Spain from the European side.
The purpose of the project is to develop curricula and programs for the industrial economy for the country's scientific and educational system, to improve the professional level of specialists, and to provide technical assistance to higher education institutions.
Within the framework of this project initiative, the horizons of international cooperation in the field of science and education will be expanded, which will serve to study and disseminate best international practices in the field of industrial entrepreneurship, modernize curricula and programs, and raise the bar for training highly qualified specialists with modern professional competencies.
