MIGREC is a three-year €800,000 research capacity building project funded by the European Union under the scheme H2020, starting in October 2019. It aims to build a leading scientific research capacity in migration studies at the Faculty of Political Science (FPN) of University of Belgrade (UoB), ensuring that the UoB scholars can contribute effectively to the research, policy and practical challenges arising from multiple and intersecting changes confronting currently Serbia, but also the whole of the European Union.
Towards this goal, FPN of UoB will be strongly linked with the following internationally-leading migration related research institutions: 1) The University of Sheffield’s (USFD, UK) Migration Research Group, an interdisciplinary network of scholars conducting world-leading and high-impact research on international migration and mobility, 2) The Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP, GR), a well-known policy-oriented research and training institute and 3) The South East European Research Centre (SEERC, GR), a multi-disciplinary and cross-border research institute empowering countries that are currently on the edge of Europe to collaborate in playing their full part in an expanded Europe.
The MIGREC Project will strengthen the interface around migration related research at FPN of UoB between academic excellence, policy impact and public engagement.
