Armenia: Kapan, Dilijan and Ijevan to launch new projects under Mayors for Economic Growth

January 10, 2022

At the end of December, the EU Delegation to Armenia signed three contracts with Kapan, Dilijan and Ijevan municipalities. These local authorities were selected from Armenia under a call for proposals to implement pilot projects in the framework of the EU-funded Mayors for Economic Growth (M4EG) regional facility.
During the coming years, the €2.7 million co-financing from the European Union will help to develop selected projects: the TUMO Centre for Creative Technologies will be set up in Kapan’s historic train station in partnership with the Simonian Educational Foundation, an abandoned Soviet-era sewing factory in Diligan will be transformed into a modern art cluster co-working space for enterprises and individuals, and the Innoijevan platform will be set up in Ijevan hosting new Armath Engineering Laboratories, a ‘Real School’ and a co-working space for businesses and individuals.
The projects are expected to be launched early this year.
