International Burch University, together with partner universities University “1 Decembrie 1918” Alba Iulia in Ronia, University "Džemal Bijedić" in Mostar, University of Bihać, and University of East Sarajevo, is implementing an EU-funded project “Introducing Student Research Mobilities to BH Universities" (INSTREAM).
The INSTREAM project will contribute to improving the higher education sector in Bosnia and Herzegovina through the facilitation of student research mobilities. Specifically, 60 students from the four participating universities in Bosnia and Herzegovina will be supported with monthly scholarships of 1,100 BAM / 550 EUR to conduct research at one of the other partner universities for between one to six months per student, resulting in a total of 180 months of mobilities. This will enable universities to avoid duplicating their own research infrastructure and specialize in specific types of research.
This project receives funding from the European Union through its Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance. It is a part of a comprehensive program - Facilitating Cooperation in Higher Education - supporting the higher education sector with three other projects empowering universities to support EU integrations of BiH, supporting universities in developing project proposals, and developing career management skills among students.
