Erasmus+: towards an increased cooperation ULB-National University of Laos!

Published on March 6, 2020 Updated on March 11, 2020

This project will be instrumental in reinforcing the internationalization of their academic training and activities. It will also deepen the connections existing for 17 years now between researchers from ULB and NUoL, especially in the field of anthropology and rural studies.

In June 2019, the ULB Faculty of Philosophy and Social Sciences was awarded with Erasmus+ funding for a mobility project between the ULB and the National University of Laos (NUoL).. The project, coordinated  by Pierre Petit (LAMC-EASt) and Amphone Vongsouphanh (Faculty of Social Sciences, NUoL) covers the period from September 2019 to August 2021, and will enable four students and three professors from Laos to come to ULB.

As this is the first Erasmus+ agreement for the Faculty of Social Sciences at NUoL, this project will be instrumental in reinforcing  the internationalization of their academic training and activities. It will also deepen the connections existing for 17 years now between researchers from ULB and NUoL, especially in the field of anthropology and rural studies.

The first two beneficiaries of this Erasmus+ project are Ms Namphon Luangxay and Ms Phetphailin Sichanthavong. Both students arrived in Brussels in late January and will stay for a full term. We fully apologize for the weather they had to endure in Brussels until now and wish them a nice stay in our Alma Mater!
