The University of Belgrade (UoB) was founded in 1905. It consists of 31 faculties and 8 scientific research institutes and has a system of university libraries and computer centers. UoB participated in TEMPUS projects, FP6 programs and other international projects – such as project dealing with Horizon 2020, Erasmus+, World Bank programs, and IPA projects. In the implementation of the proposed project, the teaching and administrative-technical staff of the Faculty of Medicine will have the largest scope of engagement. The Faculty of Medicine in Belgrade is a member of the University of Belgrade and was founded in 1920. Within the faculty, classes are organized from Integrated Academic Studies (in Serbian and English), basic academic studies of nursing, specialist vocational studies, specialist academic studies, master’s academic studies and doctoral academic studies.
This faculty is one of the first in Europe to start applying the MCPB module in teaching within its educational programs. They have made particular progress in implementing these modules in the field of medical statistics and preventive medicine and in the part of the clinical fields of medicine. Trainings of WBC HEIs teaching staff trainers will be held in these areas. In addition to the training of trainers for teaching staff, the training of trainers of administrative and technical staff of WBC HEIs will be held in UoB as well. As knowledge of English and other languages is underrepresented among the administrative and technical staff at WBC HEIs, it will be possible to organize training of WBC HEIs administrative and technical staff at UoB without translation, which will enable savings in the project itself. Also, UoB belongs to the same region as WBC HEIs and the rules of entry are similar to WBC which further saves time and funds and improves the quality of communication, especially if we keep in mind the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic. Having in mind the possibility of traveling with the least environmentally harmful transport, the environmental aspects of the participation of these HEIs in the project are gaining in importance.
