EDIRE aims to create a networking collaboration between the University Sarajevo School of Science and Technology (SSST) and four renowned research institutions in France, Italy, Ireland and Spain, with the final aim of increasing SSST research profile, boosting its research capacity especially in the field of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion EDI. Research on EDI is almost totally unaddressed in BA, therefore EDIRE will contribute in introducing a new lines of research SSST in such strategic topics for the quality of research. These transversal research areas will be embedded in an intensive set of training and networking actions addressing more in general SSST research and management capacity. The project will rely, for the achievement of such objectives, on a variegated set of methods, such as: 1) interdisciplinarity and knowledge sharing, 2) capacity building, 3) participatory approach, 4) inclusivity and sustainability and 5) far-reaching methods for communication and engagement. The Twinning exercise will build on an appropriate set of key actions from joint training and research paths, to bilateral meetings, to short visits to dedicated conferences and summer schools, leading to new research opportunities and joint research projects in the field. The organization of networking and outreaching activities, such as conferences, dissemination events and liaison activities with similar projects, will contribute to the visibility of SSST and of the other EU partners in the field. An appropriate set of key actions will strengthen the research management and administrative skills of SSST staff and will lead to the establishment of a new Research Management Unit at SSST. Transferability and uptake of outcomes and outputs and sustainability after the project end-date will be favoured by final recommendations and guidelines to policymakers and other institutions in Widening countries.
