Russian-Armenian University 
Russian-Armenian University was founded following the interstate agreement between the Republic of Armenia and Russian Federation in 1997. During the relatively short time of its existence, RAU has become a leading educational and scientific center in Armenia, having proved to be an excellent model of integration in education. The University prepares specialists with up-to-date knowledge and skill ensuring their place in the competitive job market.
EUROPE GOES SILK ROAD is a private initiative of young European academics undertaking a 33.000 km research expedition along the New Silk Road to document the different Eurasian connectivity initiatives and their main projects on site, as well as assessing them from an interdisciplinary point of view. Their goal is to create a corridor of understanding not only between academic perspectives but also between people and cultures and thereby offer a comprehensive picture of a day-by-day ever-integrating Eurasia. The expedition will lead the researchers through the Balkans, across the Caucasus and the Caspian Sea, via the steppes and deserts of Central Asia to the Khorgas dry port, then up to the roof of the world, the Hindu Kush in Afghanistan and again down to the Pakistani port of Gwadar at the Indian Ocean, before they are again traversing Balochistan and the world’s highest mountain range on the Karakoram Highway and entering China until they reach their destination Shanghai.
