2020 June - Published conclusions of the Regional Cluster Meeting
A short publication with the conclusions of the "Regional Cluster Meeting on the impact of Capacity Building in Higher Education (CBHE) projects in the Western Balkans" that took place on 22-23 October 2019. is available for download.
The Cluster meeting on the impact of the CBHE action in the WB region brought together a large number of stakeholders, and the organisation in the form of workshops was an appropriate and successful approach to address important action priorities and policy aspects. The participants were highly satisfied with the outcomes of the event and encouraged the Executive Agency to organise more events of this kind. In particular, the Cluster Meeting provided the participants with the opportunity to discuss the impact of CBHE projects in terms of regional cooperation, modernisation, accessibility and internationalisation of Higher Education. It encouraged and facilitated the exchange of good practice and networking and served as a platform to identify obstacles in the implementation of CBHE projects and practical solutions.
As a result of the event, CBHE projects in the Western Balkan region enjoy wider visibility and their quality, impact and sustainability is enhanced. The conclusions of the Cluster Meeting can serve National Authorities, the European Commission and HEI institutions and promote re-examination of the actual needs of the HE sector in the Western Balkans and the way these needs can be better addressed.
