Moscow to host the Educational Forum of the Greater Eurasian Partnership
It will be held within the framework of Russia’s presidency in the EEU on the platform of the National Research University Higher School of Economics
Among the tasks of the forum, which will begin on Monday, 25 September, is to develop common positions in the educational, scientific and technological spheres in order to create a unified social and humanitarian environment for cooperation and development of the Greater Eurasian Partnership, as reported by Eurasia Today, a partner of TV BRICS.
The Greater Eurasian Partnership (GEP), which consists of the EEU, SCO, BRICS, ASEAN, countries of Africa, the Middle East and Latin America, integrates the efforts of all these countries and associations in their endeavour to develop and increase their role in the global community.
Such multifaceted and voluminous work is impossible without constant exchange of views and reconciliation of positions on scientific and educational issues. This is the engine of economic growth for the GEP states, which are facing modern challenges in the spheres of economy and digitalisation.
The Forum will consist of plenary sessions. The main topics are “strengthening humanitarian ties between civilisations: towards Greater Eurasia”, ” common Eurasian intellectual space: partnership in education and science” and “university contribution to digital transformation: how to stay on the crest of the wave”.
The participants will discuss a wide range of issues that concern the creation of a common mechanism of scientific and educational cooperation, the establishment of effective academic exchange, the reformatting of traditional curricula to digital transformation, and ways to expand cooperation between universities and IT-companies, and much more.
Speeches and reports of heads of universities from Saudi Arabia, Armenia, Uzbekistan, representatives of educational institutions and scientific organisations from Syria, India, China, Kazakhstan and other countries are planned.
The Forum will work in the face-to-face format.
