Estonian and foreign experts renew the Russian and Eastern partnership countries related curriculum
The Estonian and foreign experts gather in Tartu on 24 and 25 September 2012 in the frames of the Traderun programme to develop new curricula for 2013-2014 academic year.
Project manager Olga Bogdanova says that, unlike last year when the programme courses were mainly oriented to Russian studies, new curricula should stress on Eastern partnership countries since students show more interest for this region and foreign partners are more enthusiastic to cooperate. Therefore foreign experts from these countries were invited to join the meeting.
In addition to the experts gathering, three public lectures will be held on September 26th, 2012. All interested in the development and contemporary society of Eastern partnership countries are welcome to attend. The lectures in English and Russian will be held in Tartu at Lossi 36-104 from 12 PM to 4 PM.
The Traderun programme is coordinated by Euro College of the University of Tartu in cooperation with Tallinn University, Tallinn University of Technology and Estonian School of Diplomacy. The aim of the programme is to enhance the quality and expertise of Estonian exporters in Russian and Eastern partnership economic, political, business and cultural environment and improve knowledge about the current situation in the region.
Amongst the experts partaking in the meeting on 24-25 September are well-known academics, practitioners and analysts from Estonia, Russia, Moldova, Armenia, Belarus and Georgia.
