Concrete objectives in the LFM hinge on the key elements identified in the Action Plan for the Strategy for the Development of Science and Technology. Although this Strategy was formulated in Serbia, it gives voice to the researchers in the WBC reagion, targeting common weak points. Further, Action Plan for the Strategy of Higher Education also lists a number of Re@WBC key-actions. Finally, Action Plan for the Development of Education till 2020 contains some other key-activities relevant for Re@WBC. All of these actions are integrated into the Workplan, grouped under different workpackages: WP1 Preparation for research potential enhancement; WP2 Excellent university for the researchers; WP3 Excellent researchers for the community; with three more WPs on quality assurance, dissemination and exploitation, and management. In combination with the principles of the EU strategy for researchers, these and other original activities aim at enhancing human research potential in the WBC region.
Re@WBC plans to improve institutional HR policies and practices through a series of bylaw changes that will prepare researchers for the labour market and society by facilitating their career development. Further, it will enhance their level of competences through a series of practical trainings in transversal and transferable skills. Thus it will harmonise the management of university research potentials and foster regional cooperation in the WBC region converging with EU develpments in HE.
