Czech government sees “unique opportunity” in contributing to EU-backed initiative

An EU project aimed at promoting European higher education globally and boosting cooperation between European universities is set to continue after a consortium won a tender to keep it going.

The Czech National Agency for International Education and Research (DZS), a government body, announced on 14 June that a consortium had won the tender from the European Commission for the Study in Europe project.

The DZS joined the consortium—which also features the French national agency Campus France, the German Academic Exchange Service and Nuffic, a Dutch organisation for internationalisation in education—in September.

The project provides information around the world on the higher education opportunities available in 33 European countries, while helping European higher education institutions to contact potential students and partners.

The DZS said that, as part of the new tender, it would participate in creating a strategy for the unified promotion of Europe as a study destination and would help to organise fairs for foreign students.

Soňa Lippmann, head of the communication and analytical section of the DZS, said: “This cooperation represents a unique opportunity for the Czech Republic to shape and influence the future of European education.”
