European Higher Education Fairs in Central Asia and Asia (EHEF) is a European Union funded project that brings together universities from Central Asia and the EU to discuss cooperation through conferences and roadshows as well as organising Education Fairs where students can find out more about studying in Europe.
Having already organised events in China, Malaysia, India, Vietnam, Lao, Cambodia, Nepal, Kazakhstan and the Kyrgyz Republic during 2014-16, they are now planning a conference in Tajikistan that will provide a platform for discussion among higher education leaders and university staff from both Tajikistan and EU member states.
The 2-day event will provide an opportunity to reflect on the achievements of cooperation between the EU and Tajik HE sectors to date as well as look at future opportunities. Working groups will focus on practical implementation and sharing of best practice on topics such as the Bologna Process, successful partnership building and internationalisation strategies.
The event is planned for May 2017 to coincide with the CAEP Regional Conference on Quality Assurance and Accreditation, when HE and VET representatives, QA and Accreditation experts and Ministries of Education and Labour specialists from Central Asia and the EU will be invited to share approaches, best practice and latest trends in the sector.
