On 03 September 2021 HERAS Plus organized a constitutive meeting for establishment of the Association of Kosovar-Austrian Alumni (AKAA). The Association is expected to further promote the internationalization and academic mobility between Kosovo and Austria, share lesson learnt and act as a catalyst for generating new ideas. During the event the main bodies of the AKAA such as Founders and Board members were selected/nominated in accordance with the Statute of the Association which was also presented at the event.
The AKAA will be a non-profit foundation, according to the legislation of Kosovo. The constitutive meeting mainly marked a ceremonial event of establishing the Association of Alumni as a legal entity, whereas the Project will seek ways to provide specific support and assistance with the aim of functionalizing the Association and helping to fulfill its mission.
HERAS Plus Project is entrusted to support the establishment of the Association of Kosovar-Austrian Alumni which will bring together all Kosovan scholars that have graduated in Austrian Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the last 20 years.
