EMA2 - Hermes


HERMES stands for “Humanities Education Revitalized via Mundus ExperienceS”. The project promotes scientific exchange and strengthens the links between universities in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia and Ukraine and their counterparts in EU member states. HERMES is dedicated to the Humanities. Academic projects in the field of Law can also receive funding, but the Humanities will be given precedence.

HERMES is financed entirely through the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 program of the European Commission. It is coordinated by the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece, and co-coordinated by the Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University in Georgia.

Viadrina is one of seven European universities participating in the project. As a project partner, it can send undergraduate, graduate and PhD students, academics and staff on exchange semesters, research and work stays at the HERMES partner universities and provide them with EMA2 scholarships, as well as receive students, academics and staff from the participating HERMES countries.

Detailed information on the HERMES partner universities , their academic offering, HERMES scholarships and application procedures is available on the project website project website
