Sarajevo to co-fininance scientific research projects from its Canton of Sarajevoe

The Ministry of Science, Higher Education and Youth of the Canton of Sarajevo yesterday signed a contract to co-finance scientific research projects and programs from the budget of the Canton of Sarajevo for the year 2023.

The contracts were signed by the line minister Pavle Krsti and representatives of the projects and programs for which funds were approved from the budget, based on the public invitation that was announced.

In this year's budget, CS Prime Minister Nihad Uk said that a record amount of funds was allocated for scientific research activities in the amount of 4,250,000 BAM, and in line with the principles of the CS Government, the aim is to continue budget expansion for science, technological development and innovation.

Uk said he got the most out of his scientific research projects.

According to Krsti, approved funds from the budget will be distributed for a total of 452 projects.

He emphasized the co-financing of scientific research projects for young scientists and the technical preparation and defense of a doctoral dissertation at the University of Sarajevo.

Projects and programs that are of particular interest to CS will be co-financed, as well as the introduction of programs/modules/cyclical and non-cyclical programs in foreign languages/digital portals, innovative materials that promote BiH's achievements in science and art.

Co-financing includes a cost of publishing scientific articles, the capacity-building program for applying to EU research funds, publishing books/monographs, participating in conferences, publishing and indexing journals, organizing conferences.

He said the decision was a decision that he would not make until the end of the year.

This is a relatively simplified process, and on the other hand, it is well designed and provides enough resources, he said.

It's difficult to have funds if you don't have enough money. What CS provides is very useful, and I hope that this kind of support will continue in the future. Our project includes several packages in which, apart from me, four others are involved a colleague from the faculty. We aim to draw in students to master's and undergraduate studies in this way. In this way, we ensure that they also acquire certain skills and knowledge, he said.
