Prof. Dr Rumen Uluchev, Vice-Rector; Dr Anna Dzhaleva-Chonkova, Institutional Erasmus Coordinator and Mr Erdogan Hadzhiev, Senior lecturer at the Department of Technology, Organization and Management of Transport visited Istanbul and Bursa on the invitation of two Turkish universities.

The University of Transport representatives had a number of meetings: with Vice-Rectors of the two universities, the Deans of the faculties that signed Erasmus interinstitutional agreements, institutional and faculty Erasmus coordinators, teachers and students. During the meetings they discussed the possibilities of both academic mobility and wider cooperation including partnership in research and educational projects, participation in conferences, organization of scientific events, etc.

On the way back the delegation had a brief working meeting with teachers from the Trakya University in Edirne where they discussed the forthcoming Erasmus visits to the University of Transport for teaching and staff training and the current EC calls for developing projects.
