The Western Balkans Alumni Association (WBAA for short) is a regional association of alumni who have spent part of their studies abroad, funded by EU education and training programmes such as Erasmus+ and the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions.
Officially launched in March 2018, WBAA was born from the EU’s Western Balkans Platform on Education and Training in 2014, where the Ministers of Education of the 6 Western Balkan countries agreed on the need to establish a regional network of alumni. Since its inception, WBAA has come a long way! Today, the association brings together all the relevant actors in the Western Balkans to make sure that the young people’s voices in the region are heard loud and clear.
