15 + years of Support to Bosnia and Herzegovina Higher Education through ADC WUS Austria Collaboration

Sarajevo. New publication issued by WUS Austria Sarajevo Office within the framework of the Conference “Austrian Support to Higher Education in Bosnia and Herzegovina”.

 

Extract from the publication:

"After more than 15 years of cooperation with the Austrian Development Agency and working together on a common vision of improving higher education in BiH, we can conclude that the future of higher education in BiH is not disputable. The future is based on those who turn their ideas into action and new visions, (...). We were fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with those diligent, inspired and enthusiastic individuals in the academic community in BiH.
(..) higher education in the prewar period was at a high level, when our professors and students were welcomed all over the world, but  BiH higher education institutions lost a lot of their infrastructure and human capacities during the war, the financial and project support in the last 15+ years corresponded to the particular needs of the higher education institutions in BiH. It is important to emphasize that the true dedication and recognition of priorities by ADC formed the basis for continuing processes, development of new projects, new systems and contacts, as well as for responding to the needs of the BiH society.
We wish to thank the Austrian Development Agency, as well as all the partner universities in BiH, our WUS Austria staff and our office in Graz for their every-day support, and last but not least we wish to thank all WUS Austria’s friends, members of the academic community in BiH, who have been the wind in our sails and without whom our work would be without purpose."

Dino Mujkic, regional manager, WUS Austria
