Since 2021, the Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies implements the project AgroDev (“Development of Higher Education Content Aimed to Support Industries for Sustainable Production of Qualitative Agri-food”) in cooperation with Hilfswerk International, KNAU, LNU, NSU, TDAU, TDIU SF and URK. The project is funded by the European Union within the framework of the program “ERASMUS+” (line 2: “Enhancing the Potential of Higher Education”).
The overall goal is to modernize higher education in the field of agro-industry, and thereby contributing to the introduction and effective management of sustainable agro-food production systems in Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan.
The project team aims to develop the content and mechanisms of higher education such that the trained specialists will better meet the needs of the agro-industrial sector in Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan.
Along with the development and implementation of the content and improvement of the learning environment, the project contributes to strengthening ties between higher education institutions and agro-industrial enterprises in Central Asia. It contributes to the strengthening of cooperation between universities in Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and EU countries.
