Here are the other presentations and their presenters:

WUS Austria, delivered by Nina Lacevic
SUS BiH, delivered by Lejla Sahacic
NCP FP7, delivered by Dina Masnik
CIVITAS, delivered by Rizah Smailbegovic

An interesting information was presented by Edin Jahic from the TEMPUS office. Namely, an additional TEMPUS was approved which is really good news for the BH academic community. It is called TEMPUS IV and more information about application procedures will be available by the end of January. Mr. Dino Đipa, Representative of the Center for Policy Studies presented the work of his organization. The event was hosted by Dino Mujkic, WUS Austria regional manager and Haris Muhic, SUS BiH director.

Due to the fact that the NGO Comittee gathers various organizations not only from the NGO sector, but also from the governmental sector such as ministries,  embassies and international organizations, Haris Muhic proposed to change the name into Higher Education Conference. After a fruitful discussion and several suggestions, the participants agreed to change the name into Higher Education Cooperation Board that will preserve the good tradition of the NGO Comittee. They also agreed to reassemble more frequently in the future in accordance with the needs at hand and to exchange time tables in order to be better informed about each other's activities.
All interested parties are welcome to join the Higher Education Cooperation Board.
