|PROJECT||Next Destination Balkans: Agritourism Landscapes Development|
|Programme||ERASMUS+ (Subprogramme: Capacity Building in Higher Education)|
|Lead partner||College of Agriculture and Food Technology Prokuplje|
Agriculture is ingrained in the community‘s history and plays an important economic and cultural role. This sector has influenced the development of the regions across Europe and is one of the key sectors of rural development. Agritourism has been seen core means to diversify the income of farmers. Many regions throughout the world have used their culinary and farm experiences to develop tourism products. The purpose of this project is to understand the opportunities provided by agritourism operations to the tourism sector in the region of Western Balkans. The approach to agritourism development and promotion is seen through:
Introduction of innovative professional courses in agritourism improves the relevance of education and closes the gap between education and labour market in the field.
Project overall objective is to build the capacity of higher education to play an active role in the development of society aiming at improving the quality of life in rural areas through diversification of rural economy.
|PROJECT||Fostering University Support Services and Procedures for Full Participation in the European Higher Education Area|
|Programme||ERASMUS+ (Subprogramme: Structural Measures-Governance Reform)|
|Coordinator||University of Niš|
The project Fostering University Support Services and Procedures for Full Participation in the European Higher Education Area (FUSE) is aimed at developing, at all levels, the capacities of HEIs in Serbia to establish and improve support services and procedures dealing with international cooperation and mobility in line with advanced EU practices. This wider objective will be achieved through the completion of the set of specific objectives:
In-depth analysis of the current situation at HEIs in Serbia related to legal and administrative framework, working protocols, practices, staff and institution capacities etc. dealing with mobility support services and international cooperation, followed by the review of EU partner HEIs models and know-how transfer and exchange, will serve as the basis for establishing/developing/improving the capacities of partner institutions in Serbia in the area of setting the national action plan and guidelines, university standardized documents, various information and support mechanisms and databases, as well as various capacity and service- improving networks of stakeholders, to be implemented at faculty and university levels.
The project will also raise awareness and understanding of the target- area policies and practices at national and institutional levels and dissemination through presentation events and trainings.
The project will provide a framework at five state universities in Serbia for upgrading the mobility services and procedures at individual faculties by adopting new and improving the already existing practices, assisting the less advanced partners, and help transferring the established know-how and models to HE colleges and other HEIs in Serbia.
