Project description

We participated in the ERASMUS + project (http://www.if4tm.kg.ac.rs/) as an associate partner.

The IF4TM project (Institutional framework for the development of the third mission of universities in Serbia) has the overarching goal of contributing to the establishment of an institutional framework for the third mission of universities in Serbia, covering three dimensions: technology transfer and innovation, continuing education and social engagement.

The six specific objectives are:


  1. Define the legal and policy framework that supports the development of the third mission of universities in Serbia
  2. Adapt the existing and define the new legal framework at seven Serbian higher education institutions in line with national regulatory requirements
  3. Develop the dimension of technology transfer and innovation of the third university mission, through the INNO platform for innovation management at seven Serbian higher education institutions, the program of proving the concept of raising the level of TRL and involving students in the development of creative ideas
  4. Develop a continuing education dimension to strengthen the capacity of university staff, researchers and students in the fields of entrepreneurship, innovation and intellectual property management
  5. Develop a dimension of social engagement of universities that unlocks and mobilizes university resources and capacities for the needs of society and businesses
  6. Establish five centers for creativity as spaces that enable creativity in teaching and learning, developing ideas and proving the concept through interdisciplinary communication and creating working prototypes.
