The University of Cantabria receives participants in the new exchange programme with Central Asia. The "Silk Route" mobility program enables members from universities in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan to carry out training, work or research stay-periods.
The University of Cantabria (UC) has already received the first group of participants in the new EU mobility project (the "Silk Route") from central Asian countries. This new way of exchange between students and staff implies a new opening step of the Cantabrian institution to new geographical environments.

This involves ten students, technicians and lecturers who are carrying out a stay-period. This stay-period can last from one month, to find out how the University services work, or last up to three years, as in the case of doctoral students.
Silkroute is a project belonging to the Erasmus Mundus public calls, mobility with Central Asian countries coordinated in the European part by the University of Padua and in the Asian part, from the Al - Farabi Kazakh National University of Kazakhstan.
In addition to Padua and Cantabria, the following European universities also participate in Silkroute; the University of Graz (Austria), Zagreb (Croatia), Bologna (Italy) and Alexandru Ioan Cuza (Romania). Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan are some of the countries where these exchanges are carried out.
In this case, the Erasmus Mundus programme provides scholarships for students of Degrees, Master's Degrees and Doctorates, as well as teachers and administration and services staff from universities in third countries who carry out stay-periods to study or work in European universities who are partners in the project.
This first group, which some people from the University of Cantabria still have to join, participated in a meeting with José Gómez Sal, Rector of the UC; Teresa Susinos, Vice-Rector of internationalization and members of the Area of International Relations.
