BERLIN — On January 21, a memorandum of understanding was signed to establish a TUMO center in Berlin. The signing ceremony took place concurrently at the TUMO Yerevan and the Berlin headquarters of KfW Development Bank.
In October 2020, TUMO Berlin will open its doors in Charlottenburg, a historic community in western Berlin, providing tuition-free education to 1,200 students.
The event was attended by government officials of the Republic of Armenia and the Federal Republic of Germany as well as the heads of the TUMO Center for Creative Technologies and KfW Development Bank.
Welcoming those in attendance, Deputy Prime Minister of Armenia Mher Grigoryan said, “Today’s event proves that a country’s geographic location or the richness of its natural resources does not determine its future. Rather, it is a country’s human potential and the richness of its ideas, which have no boundary.”
The establishment of a TUMO center in Berlin was spearheaded by the TUMO Center for Creative Technologies in tandem with KfW Development Bank.
Dr. Ingrid Hengster, a member of KfW’s executive board, stated in her address, “Promoting education is one of KfW’s central priorities. With TUMO, we are adopting an innovative project, from a country that KfW also cooperates with in development, to promote the digital education of children.”
