The European Union has granted €12.5 million for the EU TUMO Convergence Centre for Engineering and Applied Science. On 19 March the European Union, in partnership with the Tumo Centre for Creative Technologies, launched the centre as a state-of-the-art STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) ecosystem for young adults in Armenia. Lawrence Meredith, Director for Neighbourhood East at the European Commission's Directorate-General for Neighborhood and Enlargement Negotiations, and Piotr Świtalski, EU Ambassador, Head of the European Union Delegation to Armenia, were the keynote speakers at the launch ceremony.
Director Meredith was excited to be present at the launch event: “This launch takes part at a really important moment in EU-Armenia relations. Investment in innovation and young people is so important, as it is an investment in our future relationship. Armenians are particularly brilliant at STEM and I am sure they will succeed”.
