The university is actively engaged in preparation and implementation of the EU research and development projects financed by the ongoing national and international programmes and funds (ESI funds, European Territorial Cooperation Programmes and the European Union Programmes).
Both the faculty and staff are involved in entire project cycle management, which contributes to further development of new study programmes and improvements in the current ones. In addition, it provides good quality education and strengthens the recognition of the University as a relevant factor of social and economic development in its community.

EU project AWO - Academic Writing Online
The EU project AWO is financed by funds for ERASMUS+ KA2 Programme – Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices. Our professor Ksenija Stojaković, project coordinator, together with her colleagues from Fachhochschule Burgenland (University of Aplied Sciences Burgenland, Eisenstadt) and five other partners from Middle and Eastern Europe develops and prepares the online course Academic Writing Online.
The course consists of series of recorded lectures, texts and presentations with instructions for writing the final paper, scientific paper or professional paper. The aim of the project is in line with one of the Europe 2020 strategy targets, which is increasing the share of the population aged 30-34 having completed third level education to at least 40% by the end of 2020. The project is financed by the EU funds and is available to everyone who wants to take the last step towards completing their degree and master the technique of academic writing.
The original course modules are prepared in German and English, and are subsequently translated and adjusted to five Middle and East European languages. These modules impart skills relevant for academic writing, while an additional module aimed at teachers helps them better support students during the writing process. A brochure about AWO is available here.
