Dialog of Institutions of Higher Education in western Balkan Countries and Germany
New DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) project focuses on the sustainable development of Higher Education in the western Balkan region and promotes cooperation between Germany, Albania and North Macedonia.
The joint project of SRH University of Applied Sciences, Nehemiah Gateway University (Faculty of Business & Technology, Pogradec, Albania) and St. Cyril and Methodius University (Faculty of Electric Engineering and Information Technology, Skopje, North Macedonia) supports professional exchange of ideas, manpower and higher education strategies between Germany, Albania and North Macedonia putting an emphasis on sustainable development.
The aim is to avoid ethnic conflicts, to strengthen collaboration across borders and to support democratic developments and civil society. Furthermore, collaborations are to be encouraged and enhanced across borders. While political, economic and technological challenges are to be put into a global context, all issues and responses have to be formulated locally with responsibility resting on local actors.
A platform is created for the exchange of experts and academic staff to share and discuss their insights and approaches.
Grant value: 40.000 Euro
Project duration: January 2020 to December 2020
