For the first time, Armenia, represented by the State Medical University after Mkhitar Heratsi, has been named winner of HORIZON 2020 Twinning program.

The University said in a news release it has already received an official letter from the European Commission confirming that it has won the "COBRAIN: Armenia Center for Translational Research on Chronic Neurodegenerative Disorders: A Neuroscience Initiative on Maintaining Healthy Brain Ageing" project, collecting 96.6% of the maximal score.

The project will serve as a basis for the formation of staff and infrastructure necessary for Brain Research Excellence Center in Armenia.

Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) – in addition to the private investment that this money will attract. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.

Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe's global competitiveness.

Horizon 2020’s Spreading Excellence & Widening Participation Twinning program aims to implement institutional, internationally competitive and progressive research programs meeting excellence standards in applicant countries.
