Italian AlmaLaurea Consortium undertakes to share the experience and skills with its Armenian partners.
The first meeting of AlmaLaurea Consortium with participating universities and organizations was held in Bologna on January 9 - 11, 2013.
The Armenian side was represented by Yerevan State University, Armenian State Engineering University, State Economic University of Armenia, Yerevan State University of Architecture and Construction, Armenian National Agrarian University, Gavar State University, Academy of Fine Arts and Gyumri State Pedagogical Institute.
In the framework of the visit participants were received by the Rector of the University of Bologna Ivano Dionigi.
Prof. Andrea Cammelli, AlmaLaurea Founder and Director said that they are willing to contribute to the development of the cooperation between university, alumni and labor market in Armenia.
Eight universities of Armenia, Ministry of Education and Science, Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, National Centre for Quality Assurance, National Association of Students of Armenia, Union of Manufacturers and Businessmen of Armenia, as well as the AlmaLaurea Consortium representatives participate in the EU HEN-GEAR Tempus Project.
Participants of the project, highlighting the implementation of the project in Armenia, are sure that it will enable to understand if the alumni are satisfied with their education.
The project will also help to create a system for monitoring of education and labor market, based on the experience of the AlmaLaurea Consortium. This is a good opportunity for our students to solve their employment issues and become more competitive in the labor market.
The main goal of the project is to create a network of cooperation between universities and employers.
In the end of the project it is scheduled to make a network of the universities in Armenia on the example of AlmaLaurea Consortium and a database with the autobiographical data of the alumni. This will make easier to establish quick and online contact between the alumni and employers, as well as career monitoring of the graduates.
The three-year project is funded by the European Union Tempus program.
