Rectors of 30 Universities from SE Europe Sign Cooperation Agreement

ZAGREB, February 9, 2019 - Rectors of 30 universities from SE Europe, including those from Croatia, signed an academic interinstitutional cooperation agreement in the southern Bosnia and Herzegovina city of Mostar on Friday.

The agreement provides for stronger engagement and cooperation in research, higher education, projects defined through various funding programmes, and in establishing more effective links between higher education and the labour market.

The Rector of the University of Mostar, Zoran Tomić, said that the rectors had agreed to better organise themselves and to open themselves to European and global university conferences.

"We want to offer our vision of development of higher education, research and knowledge transfer to large conferences such as those in Berlin, London and Paris. We want to act together through strong organisation within the 30 universities participating in the Rectors' Conference of Southeastern Europe and the Western Balkans," Tomić said.

Snježana Prijić-Samaržija, the Rector of the University of Rijeka, Croatia, said that it was essential to use the connections between the universities for the absorption of EU funding.

Igor Papič, the Rector of the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, said that all universities in the region should define their own interests, adding that his university had an obligation to help others to integrate into different European projects.

A Permanent Secretariat was established to coordinate the future activities of this forum.
