The University of Mostar (SVEMO) employs around 1070 teaching staff and 160 administrative staff. It is internationally oriented and its intention is to become fully integrated into the European Higher Education Area. It has over 15 000 students. It consists of 10 faculties and one Academy. The University is a full member of the most prominent European and regional University associations and academic networks (CEEPUS, EUCEN, EUA, Magna Charta, etc.). Around 30 agreements on interUniversity cooperation have been signed with Universities from EHEA. Some results of these agreements can be seen in the international projects such as TEMPUS, IPA, FP7.
Due to the nature of the project packages and our participation, the Mostar Unversity will organize an interdisciplinary team which will primarily be based at the Faculty of Agriculture and Food Technology. The Faculty of Agriculture and Food Technology was established in 1994 and since then, it has evolved into a regional leader in education, research, and promotion of agricultural science. Research that has been carried out at the Faculty, has significantly improved agricultural science and provided solutions for problems and challenges in domestic agricultural production. Faculty of Agriculture and Food Technology staff are also very active in organizing lectures with the aim to popularize agricultural profession, preservation of rural area, environment protection and traditional values of the region where they work. They regularly offer various special and LLL certificate programs (cheese production, bee keeping - honey production, vegetable production, etc.)
