Children's University in Bosnia and Hercegovina


12-14 October 2011

The first Children’s University in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) gathers children around science and research-based topics in order to promote higher education cooperation between primary schools and universities in BiH, as well as to build a common future. ERSTE Foundation and WUS Austria encourage participation of all children without boundaries.

The overall objective of the action is to increase the interest in science, research and technology from a very young age and to engage children in exciting, interactive, real-world learning experiences. This way the children develop academic talent and knowledge, creativity and personal growth, and they are encouraged to be curious and to think critically.

Moreover, the project strengthens the role of civil society, human rights and democratic principles through participation of all groups of society in higher education.
