FOR UNIVERSITY EDUCATION IN SARAJEVO)
The project is included within the TEMPUS
Programme - Education (CD_JEP-15045-2000, European Commission)
and has been carried out during the period 15.03.2001- 14.03.2004;
the consortium members have been: the “Politecnico di
Torino” (Dept. DITIC), as contractor, the University
of Sarajevo (BIH, Bosnia Herzegovina), as beneficiary of the
project, and the University of Southampton (UK), as partner.
The purpose of the project has been the development
of innovative academic programmes related to transport and
traffic engineering at the University of Sarajevo.
As a major result, the project has allowed
the realisation of textbooks on innovative subjects within
Transport, Traffic and Communications fields, some of which
have been printed, in a limited number of copies.
On March 2003, the 8th, the final seminar
of the project has taken place at the Faculty of “Transport,
Traffic and Communications” (Fakultet za Saobracaj i
Komunikacije) of the University of Sarajevo. During the seminar,
where Bosnian press was present, the innovative educational
and training material, prepared by the three Faculties during
the three years, the little library, which has been rebuilt,
and a little educational laboratory, realised within the aims
of the project, have been presented.
Actually, a main part of the funding has
been devoted to rebuild a library and the educational systems
concerning transport and traffic engineering.
An extension of the activities (2004-2007)
also in the field of ITS has been planned, if the proposal
- submitted in 2003 - was approved by the European Commission,
the new project would include also the Universities of Zagreb
and of Vienna (University of Applied Sciences of Vienna -
Fachhochschule Technikum Wien), where a degree course on “Intelligent
Transport Systems”, lasting four years, has been recently
