Since 2014, the Union of Euro-Mediterranean Universities (UNIMED) has committed itself to its work to support higher education institutions in crisis emergencies, and to enhance cooperation as a priority, through capacity building, mobility, exchange of ideas and knowledge sharing. In 2018, UNMED decided to launch the Libya Restart Project, an institutional initiative aimed at gaining a deeper understanding of the Libyan higher education system, through research activity jointly performed by UNIMED staff and fellow Libyan colleagues. We spent one year collecting and analyzing data and documents, discussing the results with our friends in Libya, exchanging ideas, making mistakes, and finding alternative sources and interpretations. Libya restart is a tangible result of our work.
Today, Wednesday, June 24, 2020, at 10:00 am, an online meeting was held between the Union of Euro-Mediterranean Universities (UNIMED) with some Libyan universities and participation in a project Libya Restart. In the presence of both the Ambassador of the European Union to Libya, the Ambassador of the State of France to Libya, head of the delegation of the European Parliament for Arab Maghreb Affairs, head of the Union of Euro-Mediterranean Universities and the Director-General of the Union of Euro-Mediterranean Universities, Director of Universities Administration at the Ministry of Education and Director of the Erasmus Office + in Libya and Director of the National Center for Quality Assurance And the accreditation of educational institutions as well as a number of representatives of the Libyan Ministry of Education.
