On July 4, 2019, ENU representatives in Brussels took part in a multilateral meeting initiated by the British University of Wolverhampton, with which ENU has strong long-term cooperation relations. The meeting was attended by Ekaterina Tsaranok, founder of the Modern Education & Research Institute, representative of ENU, Maria Sigutina, head of the ITMO University office in Brussels, Michael Wilmott, First Secretary of the Canadian Embassy for the development of science and technology and Julia Grünefelder, European Education Advisor of the Swiss Office with the EU.
Wolverhampton University gathered in Brussels experts from non-EU countries to exchange information on the possibilities of creating consortia with universities in developing countries and financing international research projects from national foundations, as well as through international organizations. Participants presented their projects and programs to support the development of science.
The UK is expected to leave the European Union on October 31, 2019. Thus, the question of preserving the level of international cooperation and the financing of science is particularly acute in British universities. Despite the exit, the British remain strategic partners and every effort will be made on its development.
Today ENU is actively cooperating with the Cardiff School of Mathematics, the laboratory of Cavendish University of Cambridge, the University of Coventry. Currently, work is being carried out jointly with the universities of Birmingham and the University of Oxford Brooks on the implementation of the CREOTALENTS project, part of the program “Creative Spark: Higher Education Enterprise” funded by the British Council.
Telling about the cooperation with Wolverhampton University, ENU, jointly with the above-mentioned universities, successfully implemented the Erasmus + project “Trans-environmental awareness of regional sustainable use of water resources”. This project is aimed at creating a trans-institutional model of interaction between universities and enterprises in the field of the water sector, including the conduct of advanced training courses for specialists in this field.
