Introduction

ECESIS – project aimed at the increase of level of knowledge of the local administration staff in the sphere of information management.

Project ECESIS - "Educational Centers' Network on Modern Technologies of Local Governing" was prepared in 2008 by the initiative group which included several universities from Germany, Poland and Ukraine. At the end of this year it was selected for European Commission financing as a result of expert evaluation.

The main objective of the project is to implement European methods of information management in practice of local government institutions in partner countries (Ukraine, Russia and Armenia); organization of constantly operating centers of retraining, curriculums to information management and foreign (European) languages for administrative staff.

The project is coordinated by Professor Troitzsch of Koblenz-Landau University (Germany), who works actively in the sphere of organization of international cooperation in frames of TEMPUS project. Unlike previous projects, whose number of participants included 3-5 members, this project is considered to be multinational (8 countries and 2 countries presented by experts), involving 19 partners.

^ I. Yerevan – one of the cities participating in the project



Yerevan ("Երևան" in Armenian; former names include Erivan and ancient name Erebuni; sometimes mistakenly written in Russian transliteration as Erevan) (population: 1,088,300 (2004 estimate) is the largest city and capital of Armenia. It is situated along the Hrazdan River, which is not navigable, on the Ararat Plain.




Archaeological evidence indicates that a military fortress called Erebuni (Էրեբունի) stood on Yerevan's site as far back as the 8th century BC. Since then the site has been strategically important as a crossroads for the caravan routes passing between Europe and
India. It has been called Yerevan since at least the 7th century A.D., when it was the capital of Armenia under Persian rule.

Due to its strategic significance, Yerevan was constantly fought over and it passed back and forth between the dominion of Persia and the Ottomans for centuries. In 1827 it was taken by Russia and formally ceded by the Persians in 1828. After the 1917 Russian revolution it enjoyed three years as the capital of independent Armenia, and in 1920 became the capital of the newly formed Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic, a territory of the Soviet Union. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, Yerevan became the capital of the independent Republic of Armenia in 1991.

Yerevan is a leading industrial, cultural, and scientific centre in the Caucasus region. It is also at the heart of an extensive rail network and is a major trading centre for agricultural products. In addition, industries in the city produce metals, machine tools, electrical equipment, chemicals, textiles, and food products.

Educational and cultural facilities in Yerevan include universities, the Armenian Academy of Sciences, a state museum, and several libraries. The largest repository of Armenian manuscripts, and indeed one of the biggest repositories of manuscripts in the world, is the Matenadaran.

The layout of Yerevan was designed by Alexander Tamanyan in the 1920's, and has grown way beyond his projections of a couple of hundred thousand residents. The center however remains pretty close to what he envisioned, with a grid pattern of streets intersected by some circular roads and a lot of parks. Virtually all hotels, museums, government offices, clubs and the like are in the very center (see map below), which can be walked across in 20 minutes - making Yerevan an extremely walkable city, except for the drivers. In summer and fall, central Yerevan can feel like one big café, with the Opera area being their capital. It remains light out until late, people are out drinking surj (Armenian coffee) and freshes (fruit smoothies), eating pastries and crepes. The days can be hot, so the nights are perfect for sitting out. In the winter it is much quieter out, yet the many teahouses across downtown Yerevan are quite packed as well as downtown's main outdoor winter attraction - ice-skating by the Opera, which was open in December 2005. Spring is beautiful, with short showers and lots of greenery.

In Novemeber 2007, the pedestrian street Northern Avenue opened, linking the Opera to Republic Square. These being the two focal points of life in the city will make for a lively street.

Along with the Northern Avenue, some of the hipper streets are Abovian Street, Tumanian Street, Sayat Nova Street, Terian Street, Mashtots Street, and Amiryan Street.

The city of Yerevan preserves little of its early history in a form of interest to casual visitors. Behind the anonymous Soviet facades, however, a rich and complex life took place and still does, in the bak (courtyard) or in private apartments far better furnished -- with books, musical instruments, art, and hospitality - than 70 years of official culture or a decade of grim poverty would suggest.

Places in Yerevan one may like to visit:

  • Tsitsernakaberd - the monument commemorating the victims of the Armenian Genocide. It is located at the top of Tsitsernakaberd Park, where you could also find the Genocide Museum.

  • Cascade - the massive white steps that ascend from downtown Yerevan towards Haghtanak Park (Victory Park). The Cafesjian Museum of Contemporary Art will be located at the top of Cascade (under construction, will open in 2010).

  • Mayr Hayastan - the Mother Armenia statue located in Haghtanak Park (Victory Park) and overlooking downtown Yerevan. Underneath the statue is the Mother Armenia Museum of the Ministry of Defense, and next to the statue is an amusement park.

  • Opera - Aram Khachaturian Concert Hall & the Alexander Spendiaryan Opera and Ballet National Academic Theatre. Two grand halls that host the Philharmonic Orchestra, various Armenian folk dance ensembles, choirs, operas, ballets, and more.

  • Sasuntsi Davit Statue - David of Sasun, an epic Armenian folk hero.

  • Ararat Brandy Factory - tours to see the production facilities and taste the company's various brandies.

  • Pantheon - cemetary where many famous Armenians are buried.

  • Yerablur - military cemetery.

  • Cossack Monument in Yerevan

  • Hamalir - Sports and Concert complex. Yerevan's answer to the Sydney Operahouse. Hosts various concerts and conferences.



Yerevan State University. Established in May 16, 1919

^ Yerevan State University (YSU) (Armenian: Երեվանի Պետական Համալսարան) is the largest university in Armenia. It was founded on May 16, 1919. Its faculties contain 110 departments. Out of its 3,150 employees, 1,190 comprise the teaching staff which includes 25 academicians, 130 professors. The university has 400 researchers, 1350 post-graduate students, and 8,500 undergraduates, including 300 students from abroad. Instruction is in Armenian, but instruction in Russian and English for foreign students is arranged according to need. The academic year is from September 1 through June 30.

The university was called ^ Yerevan Popular University and was situated on Astafyan (now Abovyan) street in the building of the former teaching seminary, which was built around 1900-1906.

The construction of new buildings (architect E. Tigranyan) began in the fifties in the territory between Mravyan and Charents streets, they are still there. The first president of YSU was H. Manandyan (1921).
