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!

The 4th call for WBAA Projects 2021 is open!

We are pleased to announce the 4th call for WBAA Projects in 2021. In this occasion, the project proposals under this call must be placed in the context of the European Year of Youth 2022, which was announced by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen in September 2021, and specifically contribute to a Global Erasmus+ alumni mentoring scheme. The global dimension of Erasmus+ will be an integral part of the European Year of Youth, reaching out to young people and cooperating with partner countries, organisations, and alumni networks worldwide. With the re-launch of international learning mobility in 2022, young people will be put in the spotlight for global mentoring, and Erasmus+ alumni are ideally placed to play an active role in this context. Erasmus+ alumni should become mentors for Erasmus+ prospective participants. They should promote Erasmus+ by offering testimonies of their own mobility experiences and providing information about destinations, courses and institutions. » Read more
