The goal of the Erasmus+ EuNIT project, as a capacity Building project, is to set-up and install, in each of the
Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) involved in the project from the partner countries, a design and management
unit that deals with the planning and management of European projects. In this context, the University
President approved the establishment of the EPU On 21/12/2017.
EPU is expected to render services to interested members of UOB community participating, or wishing to
participate, in different Erasmus+ projects. These services are expected to become fully operational at the
end of the EuNIT project. Another important task that EPU needs to perform is to introduce UOB community
to different European programs, their richness, their complexity and their importance since they widen UOB
At the University of Balamand, the Unit has been called European Projects Unit (EPU), within the Office for
European Projects and is located in the office of the Vice President for Planning and Educational Relations. The
offices directly involved in the unit are: the Office of the Vice President, the Office of Admissions & Registration
and the Office of the Comptroller.
