When it is about traffic safety, educational systems in WB countries, at all levels, are more informative than comprehensive. Due to this fact, traffic safety strategies developed by competent bodies foresee curricular reform which will encompass all levels of education. All WB partner universities share the common heritage, and thus the situation in this area is very similar. They have analysed their transport and traffic engineering curricula and found significant space for improvements. Namely, all partner universities lack modern laboratory equipment and simulation software, courses are not problem-oriented, but rather of general nature. Students have no sufficient practical skills. Mission of activities in the field of traffic safety represents a reduction of fatalities, injuries and economic losses that occur in traffic accidents. The longterm impact of such improved education will aslo be change in the behavior and attitudes of people, as well as provision of a greater pool of information relevant to the participation in traffic.
The wider objective of the project is to improve the quality of higher education in the transport and traffic engineering field, strengthen its relevance for the labour market and society, enhancing the level of competences and skills of experts in WB partner countries (Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo*, Bosnia and Herzegovina) by developing new competence-based and improvement of existing bachelor/master curricula in line with EU trends.
Quality improvement of higher education in the field of transport and traffic engineering; strengthening of its relevance for labour market and society; enhancing the level of competences and skills of experts in WB countries (Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo*, Bosnia and Herzegovina) by developing new competence-based and improvement of existing bachelor/master curricula, all in line with EU trends.
1) Identification of traffic safety key issues in WB partner countries;
2) Development and implementation of new and modern curricula for undergraduate and master studies in accordance with Bologna requirements and national accreditation standards;
3) Development of educational trainings and training material for traffic safety professionals.
