A group of students led bt Valentyna Bohatyrets in Chernivtsi have posed with their new certificates of the Jean Monnet Open Online Course of European Integration. The 42-hour course was offered by Alexandru Ioan Cuza University as part of its Jean Monnet Chair in European Political Economy co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. The course was made available through the EUROSCI Network, and more than 50 students successfully completed it at the Universities of Iasi and Suceava in Romania, and the universities of Chernivtsi and Odessa in Ukraine.
Today Universidade Metodista de Piracicaba has joined the EUROSCI Network. This is not only the first university of the Network in Brazil, but also the first one outside Europe. Brazil has been a strategic target for EUROSCI for a long time, as shown by the fact that we created a national centre with a dedicated website more than a year ago. UNIMEP's accession is also important for the redefinition of EUROSCI as a truly global network, and the first step in a direction that will be consolidated in the following months.
We are getting ready for the third edition of the Jean Monnet Open Online Course of European Integration, whose lectures are due to start in October. Valentyna Bohatyrets of Chernivtsi National University has been the fastest in getting her students registered, with 20 students in her group. Our traditional group in Chernivtsi led by Iryna Tkachuk is also foreseen, and we also know that there are colleagues trying to put groups together in Zhytomyr and Odessa. All these will join our traditional groups of students in Suceava and Iasi.
