The aim of the contact seminar is to bring together a wide range of representatives from higher education institutions located in the 34 Erasmus+ Programme Countries and representatives from Partner Country universities (from Central Asia, Afghanistan and Russia).

The 2 day event will offer them the opportunity to network and find new partners, in order to stimulate and increase the number of successful applications under the 2019 Erasmus+ Call for proposals published in October 2018.

Although the main focus of this contact seminar will be International Credit Mobility and Capacity Building in Higher Education, it will also target the other international actions open to universities from Central Asia, namely Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees and Jean Monnet activities.

The European Commission is looking forward to meeting you in Istanbul.
