Eastern European University Association International Universities Conference
1 1 1 1


The Eastern European University Association is pleased to present you the second annual international university conference (for info on the previous conference click here). Indulge in informative sessions, innovative discussions and creative atmosphere of the higher education of Eastern European countries. A totally new structure of an educational conference awaits you: strategic planning instead of expensive prearrangements, business appointments instead of costly advertising stands, prospective partners from the most prominent universities of Eastern Europe – all in one place! 


The aim of the conference is to broaden relations between foreign universities and universities of Russia, Ukraine, Belorussia,   Kazakhstan and other CIS countries  in different spheres e.g. to create long-term mutual collaboration. The engaging program and brand new concept of the conference will enable participants to select and meet potential partners with mutual interest. The event will include networking events and sessions to share experience and discover the most essential trends that open new opportunities for cooperation.

There are many ways of collaboration you will find at the conference:

  • Academic exchange of students.  This type of cooperation is widespread overseas and has proved to boost promotion of  universities and  development of relations between them. Indeed,  positive feedback from students is the best advertising strategy.


  • Tutors exchange.  This is another idea of strengthening ties between Russian, Ukrainian, Belorussian and Kazakh universities and their foreign partners. Inviting a tutor to teach a specific course ( either fully or partly sponsored) is a very advantageous experience for both students and  tutors. Furthermore it exemplifies the professional level of professors and teaching staff of the universities.


  • Creating joint educational programs.  The implication of joint educational courses is mainly arrangement of interactive courses which have been successfully implemented at a particular university abroad. The exchange of such programs and additional materials not only has a great impact on students but also allows universities to enter other educational markets and broadens their links with the partners.

  • Exchange of educational products.  These are some courses that are accredited by the cooperating universities which can be of great help for students and for the universities at the educational market..

  • Joint grant applications. Cooperating universities from different countries will be a much more preferable choice for the organizations that offer grants. Another topic of discussion will be educational products legalized by universities. 

The program

 The program of the International Universities Conference consists of sessions and business appointments. Both these methods facilitate to the achievement of the most important goals of the event.

Business appointments will be 30 minutes each and will allow the representatives of different universities to conduct prescheduled meetings, during which they will be able to discuss the most relevant and essential topics in the probable spheres of collaboration. During the two days of the conference 18 appointments will be held which will make it possible for all interested universities to have multiple fruitful discussions with their future partners.

The information sessions and presentations will provide you with up-to-date knowledge of educational systems and trends analysis so that you would not miss an opportunity brought to you by dynamic markets of Russia and CIS. 

The third day of the stay offers you advanced marketing opportunities to meet with potential students, education agents or visit campuses of three Moscow Universities. In the end of your busy day you can take time for yourself and join us for an evening tour to see splendid sights of the capital city ofRussia! We promise that you will enjoy every moment of your stay and will feel famous Russian hospitality

International Universities Conference is hosted by

the President Hotel, which is located in the heart of  Moscow.

President Hotel (former Oktyabrskya Hotel) belonging to the Department of Affairs of the President of the Russian Federation was built in 1983. The hotel’s construction was the focus of special attention because the project was ordered by the Department of Affairs of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU). The hotel was designated to provide the necessary conditions for the leadership of the CPSU and the highest structures of the Soviet State in their foreign policy activities. The hotel had a very high status and special privileges.

The preferential hotel rates are available to the participants of the conference. However a number of hotels in a range of prices catering to all budgets and requirements will also be offered.

All participants will be able to select a range of universities which seem interesting to them and book meetings beforehand.
