European Project Unit (EPU)
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 international exposure.

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.
