Within the project, we had the opportunity to cooperate with more kazakh and russian universities. One of the partner institute was Al-Farabi Kazakh National University. We are glad that we can maintain the good partnership with them. In March, we hosted 15 students who spent two weeks in Sopron and participated in short term courses and between 30th of May and 3rd of June, professor dr. Rimma Sagiyeva and Dinara Kalmakova honored us with their visit.
