The University of Sarajevo continues to implement the Erasmus + project, with the aim of strengthening the capacity of higher education.

One of the main activities is the education and training of students, which was conducted from 11 to 13 May. The students arrived in Sarajevo on May 11. where they were greeted by the host university. Education and training in which students of the Mediterranean University of Podgorica, the University of Sarajevo and the University of Mostar had the opportunity to acquire knowledge of the principles of “lean” production, and their application in various fields began on 12.05. at 10:00 with introductory remarks by Professor Mugdim Pašić, Head of the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management, who spoke to students about the importance of innovation strategies, practice-based education and the importance of networking among students of different universities to share knowledge and combine skills of different institutions.

The training was led by Professor Hadis Bajrić, with the assistance of other members of the project team. Under his guidance, students mastered a number of new tools through a series of practical exercises.

After the training, students mastered the basic concepts of quality control, became able to set standards for the work performed, to be able to detect unnecessary operations and speed up processes. These powerful tools, although originally created in the automotive industry, have full applicability in other branches such as tourism, construction, mining, and thus working with natural stone. This interdisciplinary dissemination of knowledge and experience will ensure that the natural stone sector in Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also in the wider Western Balkans region, becomes more competitive and soon fulfills its enormous potential.

The training ended at 17:00 and the students headed to their home institutions the next day, May 13, 2022.
