The first Virtual Fair of Erasmus+ Capacity Building in Higher Education Projects (CBHE) took place between 26-27 October 2021.

More than 100 projects from all over the world, 7 of them – from the Republic of Moldova (PBLMD, eDRONE, SMART, LMPI, ReSTART, ELEVATE and REFINE) have presented their results and offered practical trainings during the two days of the event.

The implementation of these projects in the universities of the Republic of Moldova allowed to introduce new teaching methods, to internationalise and digitalize the higher education, to create bridges between academia and entrepreneurship, to contribute to the professionalization of teaching programs in diverse innovative fields, but also to equip our universities with up-to-date technical equipment.

The Erasmus+ Capacity Building in Higher Education Projects are transnational cooperation actions based on multilateral partnerships, primarily between higher education institutions from Erasmus+ Programme Countries and eligible Partner Countries.

These projects aim to promote cooperation and partnerships with impact on modernisation and internationalisation of institutions and higher education systems in Partner Countries, including the Republic of Moldova.

The main objective of the Virtual Fair was, through the best practices and the results achieved by 2015-2020 funded projects, to inspire academics, university managers, students and national policy makers to shape the next generation of CBHE projects. Subject-specific sessions where results of projects in agriculture, engineering, health, entrepreneurship, digitalization, soft skills etc. took place within the Virtual Fair.

The showcased projects have succeeded in improving teaching methodologies, expanding the educational offer and enhancing governance efficiency of the higher education Institutions all over the globe.
