KEC Participation in 35th Anniversary of Erasmus+

Prof. Rameshwar Rijal, Chairman of Kantipur Engineering College participated in an event organized by The European Union Delegation to Nepal on October 14, 2022 to mark the 35th Anniversary of Erasmus+.

In this context, the EU Delegation hosted a networking event for Nepalese universities engaged in “capacity-building of higher education institution” program funded under the ERASMUS program. Capacity-building projects in the field of higher education are transnational cooperation projects, based on multilateral partnerships, primarily between higher education institutions from EU Member states or countries associated to the Programme and third countries not associated to the Programme.

Currently, Nepalese higher educational institutions namely, Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu University Pokhara University, Mid-Western University, Far Western University and Nepal Open University, in collaboration with a Lead University in Europe are implementing 14 projects in Nepal.

The representatives of the partner universities appreciated the EU for stepping in to strengthen the network between the EU and partners as well as among the partners. The EU has agreed to pass on partner universities’ viewpoint to the Ministry of Education, and will support them to strengthen their links with European Universities and EU Member States present in Nepal. Partners too have expressed interest to host events of a similar nature.
