The achievements and goals of the EU-funded project ‘EU4Digital: Connecting research and education communities’ (‘EaPConnect’), were presented at a high-level meeting on 5 October.

The project aims to create a regional research and education network in the EU’s Eastern partner countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine). The overall objective is to decrease the digital divide, improve intra-regional connectivity, and facilitate the participation of local scientists, students and academics in global research and education collaborations.

The official kick-off event for the second five-year phase of the project was part of the annual steering committee meeting of the ‘EU4Digital’ initiative, which ran from 5 to 9 October.

More than 65 participants, including representatives of Eastern partner country ministries, EU delegations, and EU institutions, were welcomed by Mathieu Bousquet, Head of Unit at the Directorate General for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations.
