WBAA Tracer Study 2021 – Bring back your experience!

We are glad to announce that after a lot of hard work, dedication and collaborative effort by the Western Balkans Alumni Association volunteers, the Institute for Advanced Studies in Vienna, Austria, the Service Provider for WBAA and the European Commission, we are conveying our TRACER STUDY! The WBAA tracer study aims to gather alumni relevant perceptions, opinions, experiences, knowledge, memories, pathways & ideas to contribute to the academic landscape and economies of the Western Balkan countries. Alumni from the Western Balkans who have spent part of their studies outside the Western Balkans in one of the Erasmus+ Programme Countries, either as an EU or non-EU country scholar or as a self-funded individual are welcome to take part in the study! YOU, as the ones who have experienced both education systems (Western Balkans and the European Union) are the ones who can make functional bridges and provide constructive material for making a positive change! Click on this link to go to the questionnaire. Here you can find more information about the Tracer Study.


The new WBAA online community is live!

On 04 October, the new WBAA community portal was launched for its members!  The new online community has a lot of additional features compared to the old one and works generally much better as it is faster and more interactive. Here is a sample of old and new features:

  • It is now possible to connect with other members through the WBAA internal chat or even to have a group (video) call.
  • There is a group system for exchanging ideas, e.g. for future WBAA plans.
  • Staying up to date and seeing when upcoming events are happening near you is super convenient.
  • Sharing files is possible, for example in a working group.
  • Members can check out who else lives close by with the map function
  • Being member of the new online community makes member eligible to vote for their next board representative
If you are not signed up to the community portal yet, now is the best time to do so! If you had a profile in the old one, check out the new version and its features, and connect with likeminded WBAA members. The profiles were transferred, so you just have to log in and choose a new password. Check your inbox for an e-mail with detailed instructions (sent out on 04 October)! Stay tuned for more updates, your WBAA team. Cologne, Germany 05 October 2021
