STINT emphasizes problems which are related to non conformities of procedures for recognition of qualifications in accordance with international documents within EHEA. Existing legislation in B&H concerning recognition of foreign qualifications hasn't been completely harmonized with Lisbon Recognition Convention. Without harmonized recognition procedures mobility of students, teachers and nonteaching staff can't be realized on the appropriate way. In comparison to internationalisation recognition mechanisms represents the cornerstone of the internationalisation of HE and mobility.

The project activities are focused on institutional and national strengthening of internationalisation and recognition mechanisms. Projects outputs are oriented on detail analysis of current state in B&H, strengthening of HEIs through developing and implementing strategies and indicators for internationalization, improving national recognition model, improving HEIs capacities (human and physical), developing of criteria for assessing internationalisation and theirs incorporation in existing criteria for accreditation of HEIs.

All project results will be published and available to public in order to ensure that different target groups achieve the projects benefits. Taking into consideration different cultural context, linguistic diversity, all important documents will be translated on local languages in order to be understandable and useful to wider audience, with respect that deeper project goals are focused on employment, continuation of education, cooperation with international institutions, etc.

Expected impact of the project is modernisation of HE system in B&H as well as strengthening of HEIs capacities for internationalisation. Established and harmonized B&H recognition system should contribute to creating linkage between Lisbon Recognition Convention and EHEA Mobility Strategy 2020.
