Serbian Faculties of Agriculture have completed a reform process by harmonizing their structure, curricula and governance to the requirements of the EHEA. Many lessons are learnt from collaboration with EU Universities through a number of TEMPUS and other programs. However, still not sufficient impact of the reformed agricultural HE has been reached to date. Universities partners in CaSA are all Serbian Agricultural faculties: public (Belgrade, Novi Sad, Kragujevac, Novi Pazar), and private (Educons).
EU partner Universities (Timisoara, Maribor and Foggia)were chosen for their known expertise in vocational training, and in distance learning. EF is an expert group of psychologists and other specialists from educational backgrounds that contribute to modernization and reform of education in Serbia. BSN treasures extensive experience in providing support, training and advice in getting, implementing and managing projects. The goal of Association ofAMSs is development of secondary education in the sector of agriculture, food production and processing. IPN has experience in managing extension activities, coordination and monitoring the work of agricultural extention services and represents a link between the Ministry of Agriculture and extension offices in Serbia. As partner in the project ME will recognize the NaRA as model repository and provider of active teaching and learning for University and AMSs teachers, and eLearning in-service teacher training vocational courses for teachers in AMSs and experts in extention services.
