Università Politecnica delle Marche 1

On 19 March, the Western Balkans Alumni Association (WBAA) participated in Erasmus Plus outreach efforts in Italy. Dr. Milan Stojanovic, a prominent member of the Regional WBAA Board, answered the call from Erblin Berisha, Assistant Professor at Politecnico di Torino and Adjunct Professor at the Università Politecnica delle Marche, to deliver an online lecture. The lecture, tailored for students, delved into regional cooperation, both within the Western Balkan region and between the Western Balkans and other countries of the Adriatic-Ionian EU macroregion.

Dr. Stojanovic's discourse was enriched with concrete examples drawn from his extensive experience through activities facilitated by the WBAA and the Adriatic Ionian Youth Organisations Network (AIYN). He illustrated how cooperation transcends borders and fosters mutual growth and development.

The audience comprised students enrolled in the course on Adriatic Ionian Cooperation at Politecnica delle Marche, University of Economics, Ancona. This module, designed to nurture collaboration within the Adriatic Ionian Region, offers a platform to explore existing endeavours while charting new trajectories for future engagement.

Dr. Stojanovic's insights inspired the participants, underscoring the importance of collective action in addressing regional challenges and seizing opportunities for advancement. His presentation served as a catalyst for thought and action, empowering the next generation of leaders to contribute meaningfully to regional integration and prosperity.

At the conclusion of the session, students posed questions, prompting Dr. Stojanovic to conclude his address with a resounding message that only through steadfast regional cooperation and the adoption of a collective approach can we truly amplify our impact, highlighting the value of knowledge exchange and collaboration.
