As the deputy head of the European Union in Turkmenistan Renata Wrobel noted in her welcoming speech:
In Turkmenistan, the national Erasmus+ office was opened in 2014, but work in the field of education has been going on since 1998, when the TEMPUS program was launched, and then in 2008 the Erasmus Mundus program was opened. Since then, dozens of students and young professionals from Turkmenistan have been trained in European universities.
The European Union's Erasmus+ program builds on over 25 years of experience in European education, training and youth programmes. The program is named after the Dutch scientist Erasmus Rotterdam, who lived in the 15th century and won all-European fame for his humanistic views.
