Project Description

PATTERNS is a transnational program designed by the ERSTE Foundation that aims at researching and understanding recent cultural history with a focus on the visual arts and culture from the 1960s until today. Within our new project PATTERNS_Lectures, a call was launched for applications for higher education institutions in Central, Eastern and South Eastern Europe in the fields of art and culture. The goal is to enable these institutions to expand or enrich their existing curricula with new content.


RS-Pristina: IPA — support to legal translators/interpreters and legallinguists (re-launch)

Various universities from the region that offer study programs in arts & culture related fields are the main beneficiaries of this project. They will have the opportunity to introduce new courses, invite guest lecturers and conduct study visits at international institutions from the region and beyond. They will furthermore participate in two conferences in Vienna. All these aspects contribute considerably to the strengthening of the regional cooperation of the participating universities.

Students are the ultimate beneficiaries of this project, since they will have the opportunity to subscribe to new innovative courses developed within PATTERNS_Lectures.

From this point of view, the project is a valuable contribution to the whole cultural and scientific environment of the entire region of South Eastern, Eastern and Central Europe

Selected courses

The Call for Applications for the introduction of new university courses was open from the January 7 until March 7. Among 61 proposals from 19 countries the project’s Academic Advisory Panel selected 16 courses that will be supported within this project. The courses will be implemented in the academic year 2010/2011. The project will end with a closing conference in 2011.
