Hungary taking over rotating presidency of CEEPUS education scheme

Hungary has formally taken over the rotating presidency of the Central European exchange programme for university studies (CEEPUS) from Poland, Janos Csak, the minister for culture and innovation, said in Warsaw on Wednesday, following a meeting of representatives of the scheme's member states.

Speaking at a press conference, Csak noted that the CEEPUS programme had been launched in Budapest in 1993 with the aim to promote mutual knowledge sharing among university students, teachers and other fellows in central and eastern European and Western Balkan countries.

The scheme has been highly successful with the number of participants increasing steadily over the past years and spending several months in host countries, he said.

The scheme will be expanded to have new members such as Ukraine offering participation of Ukrainian students in its programmes, the minister added.

Representatives of the member states signed at the meeting an international agreement on the new CEEPUS programme for 2025.
