The project “Establishing and capacity building of the Southern Serbian Academy and the National Conference for Vocational Higher Education” intends to improve the management of the vocational higher education in Serbia in line with the principles of Bologna process and EHEA. Therefore 2 specific objectives will be implemented. In the first place the project is targeting the capacity building for the 8 vocational higher education institutes in Southern Serbia forming the Academy of Colleges of Applied Sciences ( ACAS). Emphasis will be put on the university management, quality procedures, international relations and student services. In the second place it is planned to establish a Conference of Academies as an umbrella organization who is supporting the interests of vocational higher education In Serbia. The 8 vocational colleges of the ACAS together with 3 other vocational colleges from Belgrade, Subotica and Uzice will be the starting partners. Procedures will be developed to enlarge the Conference as quickly as possible with more vocational higher education institutes. Also further capacity building for the Student conference of Academies of Applied Science will be concretely targeted. The project goals are being supported by the Ministry of Education of Serbia, which ensures the sustainability of the project results. In line with Bologna also the workfield is represented via the Regional Chamber of Economy in Nis and the Health Center in Cuprija.
