This project proposal completely addresses regional priorities for JP in Serbia and Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina, concretely the priority “Developing the Higher Education sector within society at large, University-enterprise cooperation, entrepreneurship and employability of graduates”. The Trans2Work project is designed as a complementary with EquiED (http://www.equied.ni.ac.rs/en/) in RS and SINC@HE (http://sinche.uom.gr/) in ME and EQOPP (http://www.eqopp.ba/) in BiH. Aim of the project is to improve the quality and relevance of school to work transition of HE SwD in Serbia and Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Main objectives are to (a) upgrade and prepare HEIs services to support SwD to their transition from HE to Work following the EU policies, (b) link Higher Education to “disability friendly” work environments, (c) assimilate transition opportunities and skills with EU practices and policies and (d) to prepare employers on understanding the needs of employees with disabilities in order to offer new jobs. The project is divided into 6 phases, Preparation, Development, Quality Plan, Dissemination, Exploitation & Sustainability, Management, according to the guidelines of the call. All identified project activities within those phases are divided into respective Work Packages (WPs). The preparation phase aims to (a) research on a sample of employers in all participating countries, to identify the needs of employers and desired qualifications needed, and (b) Research on a sample of IwD in partner countries to ascertain the educational needs of IwD. Furtherm0re the WPs under Development follow the three key components of transition process. All stakeholders during the life cycle of the project and after the end of the project will be reached through e seminars and the accessible portal that will electronically connect employers, SwDs and transition in each partner HEI.
