Ciheam Bari FTN Press-Review's insight:
#UniClaD #Ersamusplus #Mobility #Youth #EU #ESNsurvey 2021 - Share your experience! Via Erasmus Student Network 

The ESNsurvey, focused on the core elements of student mobility: the experience of the students, the support they receive, and the impact that mobility has on their lives once they go back home. Special attention will be given to the effect of #COVID-19 on the mobility experience since this is the most important external factor affecting student mobilities at the moment. 

The questionnaire has been developed with the valuable support of an expert group consisting of the European Commission, Lifelong Learning Platform (#LLLP), European Association for International Education (#EAIE), Academic Cooperation Association (#ACA), International Association of Universities (#IAU), and Tilburg University. 

What is ESNsurvey? ESNsurvey is the largest European-wide research project conducted solely by volunteers. The Erasmus Student Network uses the results to advocate for the improvement of exchange programmes and education in Europe. As every year, we hope that thousands of students all around Europe will fill in the survey and tell us their experiences and perceptions related to studying abroad. 

We would like to thank you in advance for your assistance with this research project. If you would like to discuss any aspect of this study please feel free to contact the ESNsurvey Coordinator via the following email address: survey-coordinator@esn.org

"I realised that human and plant evolution has been driven by pathogens, that roots are a valuable food source for their associated microbes, and bacterial phenotypes are not good taxonomical markers. I was able to look beyond nitrogen fixation as an ecological service and consider how probiotic bacteria could be harnessed to promote plant and insect development.

ROGRAM ERASMUS +, PROJECTKA2 N° 609944-EPP-1-2019-1-LT-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP Project “Enhancing Capacity Of Universities To Initiate And To Participate In Clusters Development On Innovation And Sustainability Principles” (UniClaD) Start of the project: 15/01/2020 End of the project: 14/01/2023. General objective: Development of the potential of universities as an integral part of agro-industrial clusters. Creation of the innovative centers as pre-conditions for the development and successful functioning of agro-industrial clusters. Main tasks: - development of the chain: master - PhD - researcher as a primary part and researcher - projector - executor as a secondary part; - sensibilisation of business, local authorities, science and education to the cooperation in the framework of clusters based on win- win principles; - enhancing capacities of business, science and education to develop and to work within the cluster (through special trainings and special modules included into master and PhD curricula); - implementation of special structural measures at the universities as a base for activities performed within clusters; - enhancing of practical value of researches, theses and students' master works as well as students employability; - creation of conditions for better integration of innovations into agro-industrial production on the sustainability principles. Activities: - to develop special modules for master and PhD students such as: statistics, project development, econometrics, modules aimed to up-to-date challenges: climate changes, COP 21 commitment, food security, fight against poverty. - to study EU experience of universities activity within clusters and to disseminate this information among stakeholders; - to organize special trainings, study visits for business, science and education representatives in order to show advantages and to create the capacity for the cooperation within the cluster; - to develop the legal base defining rules, modalities for universities functioning within clusters in compliance with the national legislation; - to create preconditions for the creation of four cluster (water management and aquaculture, new technologies (IT) in agriculture, agro-tourist cluster and milk production and processing with the focus on traditional local products, biotechnologies in poultry production); - development of master works and PhD thesis in line with the pilot projects.

The young researchers of the region will have possibility of learning and networking, participation in discussions, but also offering to them possibility of presenting their student papers in the special session for young researchers. For those who comes the first time to Montenegro it will be nice of visiting a new places and after two days of the official program, the field visit will be arranged for those interested in it. For all the participants this international conferences will make you a known figure in academic circles of our Region, confirming at the same time that you are an active member of the academic community.
