EEC and NRU HSE opened third EAEU academic exchange program

The official opening of the third academic exchange program of the Eurasian Economic Union — a joint project of the Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs of the National Research University Higher School of Economics and the Eurasian Economic Commission, implemented within the bilateral cooperation program — took place at the National Research University Higher School of Economics.

This is an educational and scientific intensive course attended by 10 representatives of the Member States' leading universities — young experts in the Eurasian integration studies. The work is aimed at involving young experts in the processes of the Union's functioning, as well as strengthening direct ties between the Member States' leading universities to promote the development of economic cooperation in the Eurasian space.

During the face-to-face part of the exchange program — from September 18 to October 18, 2023 — a rich discussion program is planned, including master classes by representatives of the Commission, public authorities, international organizations and expert centers of the Union countries, as well as a visit to the EEC. The exchange program will result in a series of expert reports analyzing the current results and strategic directions for developing the Eurasian Economic Union.

The participants of the third exchange program were welcomed by Anastasia Likhacheva, Dean of the NRU HSE Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs, and Ilya Kuzmichev, Deputy Chairman of the EEC Youth Council. The formats of the Commission's work with the expert, scientific, educational and student communities of the Member States as part of implementing the Strategic Directions for Developing the Eurasian Economic Integration until 2025, as well as the outcomes of the 1st and 2nd Youth Forum of the CIS and EAEU were presented.
