Diana Galoyan and Lana Karlova welcomed the guests. In the context of University internationalization, they emphasized the importance of ensuring international mobility of the staff and called for a joint discussion of the challenges and problems in this process.

Vard Ghukasyan presented our University mobility programs. Then the international experts shared the exemplary experience of the University of Bologna. What to do to make the Universities’ staff more interested in “Erasmus +” by engaging in mobility, presenting their educational, national culture in abroad, getting to know the best practices in abroad and as a result being able to change something at their Universities? Here are the questions the participants were interested in.

Although the international mobility of the staff was the key topic, the mobility of students and postgraduates did not skipped the attention of those present. Recognition of credits, organizational and various issues were discussed.
