The project aims at rethinking education in humanities in Russia and Mongolia in line with EU standards, research and practices to catch up with the latest trends of the labour market and reinforce education in humanities by adopting digital methods of research and education. Proposal follows the idea that graduates with degrees in Arts and Humanities demonstrate high levels of soft skills development (demanded by potential employers), however, may lack digital skills traditionally associated with STEM programmes.


Current state of affairs suggests the significance of harmonious development of both types of skills. Hence, the project is designed to achieve the following:

  1. Development of innovative education methodology based on research and education methods of humanities, digital humanities and STEM (compiled in online manual);
  2. Trainings to equip HEIs’ teachers with innovative methods of the EU countries and facilitate professional growth;
  3. Development, launch and piloting of multi-disciplinary Master degree programme with international student exchange opportunities;
  4. Creation of Digital Lab (virtual platform) which unites students, university teachers and researchers in international small-scale projects aimed at preserving and promoting cultural heritage;
  5. Promotion of innovations in education in humanities reinforced by STEM methods and tools via collaboration with cultural sector of labour market and joint small-scale projects of the Digital Lab.
As a result, teachers will improve their professional skills and adopt new methods of teaching multidisciplinary courses. Students will get advantage of development of the EU framework competences and curriculum comprised of innovative courses that unite humanities and STEM for increasing their employability after graduation. External stakeholders (museums, galleries and other cultural institutions) will benefit from employees with high level of competences to meet the requirements of the digital age.
