Open ATHENA Dissemination Event

Timely planned after the Regional Benchmarking Forum and on the eve of the Bologna Ministerial Conference, an ATHENA dissemination event took place on Wednesday, 13 May at Yerevan State University from 16-17.30.

While the Benchmarking Forum was exclusively meant for the consortium partners, the dissemination event has opened up the discussions, notably to delegates of the Bologna Ministerial Conference and other interested local stakeholders. It thus provided an opportunity for further exchange of experience in reforming higher education taking the successful-proven approach from the ATHENA project as an example for similar processes in other systems of the European Higher Education Area.
