EURASIA is a capacity building project in higher education aimed at strengthening the academic ties between higher-educational institutions (HEI) in 4 program countries (Bulgaria, Poland, France and Italy) and 4 HEIs from 2 partner countries (China and India). The project addresses the challenges and needs to establish, update and modernize curricula in EU studies in a globalizing world and refers to the strategic priorities of the EU Global strategy 2016. EURASIA presents an equal opportunity for capacity building of all partner institutions based on shared ideas, educational know-how and resources, transparent management procedures and empowering of all stakeholders.

The project activities include the elaboration of original, innovative and methodologically grounded modules and courses on European Studies, upgrade and modernization of existing courses and developing unique ones addressing regional cooperation. The project proposes a coherent plan of training, expert meetings, joint development of teaching materials and extracurricular activities (in the framework of 3 core modules each with 4-5 courses at both the B.A. and M.A. level). Courses will be piloted in India and China; dissemination and exploitation activities are planned to make the new teaching content a permanent part of the curriculum in the two partner countries. EURASIA will strengthen the dialogue between Europe and Asia in the framework of recent EU documents encouraging such collaboration especially through academic ties, joint research projects and students and staff mobility and exchanges..
