East-West-Dialog: Dialog of Institutions of Higher Education in western Balkan Countries and Germany
Higher Education in the western Balkan Region, common values, competencies and sustained development
This project supports professional exchange of ideas, manpower and higher education strategies between Germany, Albania and North Macedonia putting an emphasis on sustainable development. It is the aim 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.
For this project a collaboration exists between the SRH University of Applied Sciences and partner institutions 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). 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
