Project duration: January 2023-January 2026.
In the implementation of the framework and strategies of education through internationalization at home (IAH) and internationalized curriculum and programs (IoC), the University of Medicine is a partner, together with the University of “Leuven“, Belgium, “Luigj Gurakuqi”, Albania, “East Sarajevo“, Bosnia and Herzegovina “Timosoara“, Romania, “Mostar“, Bosnia and Herzegovina, “Tuzla“, Bosnia and Herzegovina, “Podgorica“, Montenegro, in the project “Strengthening capacities and digital competencies in biomedical education through internationalization at home – BIOSINT“, ERASMUS-EDU-2022-CBHE-STRAND -2.
The objectives of the project are:
- Analysis of the current situation in the context of internationalization;
- Internationalization of the curriculum;
- Promotion of mobility’s for staff and students, etc.
The BIOSINT project aims to strengthen digital capacities as well as intercultural skills and attitudes at individual and institutional levels, to improve the education and development of biomedical science students, academic staff and administrative staff of participating higher education institutions (HEIs).
The proposed project theme will be implemented by HEIs from the WB area (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Albania) while HEIs from Belgium, Romania and Serbia will have advisory and knowledge transfer roles. WB HEIs are insufficient with internationalization of the curriculum, virtual mobility and services/capacity needed for internationalization. Therefore, many impacts of project results are expected.
Within the project “Strengthening capacities and digital competencies in biomedical education through internationalization at home – BIOSINT“, ERASMUS-EDU-2022-CBHE-STRAND-2, meetings were held on June 7-8, June 27-28, respectively in Ghent, Belgium and Podgorica, Montenegro.
