The main achievements of the Tempus programme in the western Balkans, 1991-2013
The main aim of the Tempus programme is to support the modernisation of higher education in partner countries outside the EU. The regions targeted include the western Balkans, eastern Europe, central Asia and the southern Mediterranean. The geographical proximity of the western Balkans and its shared history and culture makes the region of particular importance to the EU. Since the inception of the stabilisation and association process in 1999, cooperation between the EU and its south-eastern European partners has been a major objective of the EU's external relations and enlargement policy. It... aims to help the countries of the western Balkans tackle the challenges of social, economic and institutional development. Since 1991, the countries of the region have been participating in the Tempus programme, which was part of an overall EU initiative to support economic, social and democratic transition in the western Balkans, in the framework of the PHARE, CARDS and IPA funding. Since then, Tempus has been going from strength to strength.
