SER-MORE project "Development of Serbian network of mobility centers" aims at streamlining and institutionalization of existing efforts in development of infrastructure for encouraging and facilitating the mobility of researchers in Serbia – Serbian mobility network. It is being proposed on the top of experiences gained from the participation of proposal coordinator in FP6 SSA project WEB-MOB – Development of researcher’s mobility policy guidelines for the region of Western Balkans, in period of 2004-2006.
Main project objectives are: a) to establish structured network of service and information providers, enabling practical assistance to researchers in all issues related to their experience of mobility; b) to develop organizational framework, comprised of organizational structure, communication strategies, data requirements and procedures for provision of best performance in information and services delivery; and c) to promote ERA-MORE values through awareness campaign, including promotional events, dissemination of printed material with valuable information and delivery of information and services through national researchers’ mobility portal, linked to pan-European Mobility Portal.
Fulfillment of the objectives above, aligned to European standards and values, shall be ensured by a four-level organizational structure of the network, comprising of the steering, coordination, operational and beneficiary (contact points) layer. As such, Serbian mobility network will provide a backbone for involvement and concentration of all relevant actors – policy stakeholders, industry, public and private university representatives and researchers’ community. It is guided by the steering committee, providing high-level support, coordinated by the bridgehead organization and operated by 4 regional mobility centers, with geographical coverage of universities and 1 specific office for private universities and faculties as well as other research organizations.
