Education has no borders and no limits. In striving to reach European Union standards in education systems and related policies, the Western Balkans’ higher education institutions have and still are undergoing numerous reforms and transformations. In this session we aim to facilitate a long-lasting dialogue among HEIs in the EU and the Western Balkans, as well as to share best practices and expertise under Erasmus+.
