TIGRIS work visit to the UG

On 12 and 13 March, a delegation from the Kurdistan Autonomous Region in Iraq visited the University of Groningen for a work visit. The visit was part of the TIGRIS (Transfer of Good practices & Reinforcement of Internationalisation Strategies in Kurdistan) project, in which the University of Groningen is a partner.

The delegation consisted of 14 representatives from 7 different institutions. The work visit focused on internationalisation and internationalisation at home.

The TIGRIS Project has been awarded for EU co-funding within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme “Capacity Building in the Field of Higher Education”. Capacity building projects in the field of higher education support the modernisation, accessibility, and internationalisation of higher education in Partner Countries, in this case Kurdistan.

The TIGRIS Project, which will run for 3 years from 2017 – 2020, is coordinated by the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Germany. The project consortium is composed of 4 European partners and 10 Kurdish partners, including the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MHESR), as well as 2 associate partners.

Co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union
