All events will take place on Friday, 27 September, from 12:00 – 24:00, with the central events (Hands-on-experiments, Science and Art installations, Gala opening, Movie projections, Interdisciplinary and inter-generational workshops, ‘Open science Show and Quiz’, Astronomical workshop, Science kindergarten, Concert) happening at the main Square in Podgorica and a series of smaller scale activities in Podgorica (University of Montenegro, Natural History Museum of Montenegro and “Delta” and “Gintas” Shopping Malls) and five other towns in Montenegro (Kotor, Tivat, Danilovgrad, NIksic and Bijelo Polje).

The implementation plan implies having at least 10000 of direct participants, and to cover at 44% of Montenegrin population or 290000 people with awareness campaign. At least 250 people, from which 50 researchers coming from different sectors and fields of research, will implement the Researchers’ Night’s activities. Researchers’ Night will have a higher regional and international character. The main aim of 2013 project is to upgrade the role of researchers within the society. Project Researchers’ Night is fun, educational and unique event that gathers general population and researchers from academic institutions, the business sector, schools, young-talent programs, various NGOs, governmental institutions, international agencies, and guests - researchers from around the region and world, including diaspora.

This was facilitated by a temporary mission of highly-qualified persons, who originate from these countries and lived during the project in Austria, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland and in the United Kingdom. The project focused particularly on capacity-building in certain fields of local organisations in the target countries. The project is managed by IOM in partnership with the Migration, Asylum, Refugees Regional Initiative (MARRI), the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees in Germany and the Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies (WIIW), and is funded by the European Commission.

Population change - Demographic balance and crude rates at regional level (NUTS 3)

Year 2000
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Following entering into force of the EU legislative acts on demography statistics, the demographic data at regional level are annually collected from 36 countries in the frame of the UNIDEMO that is the main demographic data collection of Eurostat in the domains of demography and migration. As the most extended annual Eurostat demographic data collection, UNIDEMO (acronym from Unified Demography) collects data on population stocks, vital events (live births and deaths), marriages, divorces and migration flows at national and regional levels by various breakdowns. The statistics corresponding to the reference year T shall be transmitted by countries to Eurostat by the deadline of 31 December of the calendar T+1, and will be disseminated during March of the calendar year T+2. Demographic data at regional level include statistics on population stocks at the end on the calendar year and on vital events (live births and deaths) occurred along the year being territorially disaggregated by NUTS 2 and 3 levels, in accordance with the following EU legal acts: - Article 3 of the Regulation (EU) No 1260/2013 on European demographic statistics and its implementing measures stated in the Regulation (EU) No 205/2014; - Regulation (EU) 868/2014 which is the nomenclature of territorial units for statistics, abbreviated as NUTS. The current classification known as NUTS-2013 subdivides the territory of the European Union into 98 regions at NUTS level 1, 276 at NUTS level 2 and 1342 at NUTS level 3. The NUTS is the official division of the EU for regional statistics. - For Candidate and EFTA countries the data are collected according to the agreed statistical regions that have been coded in a way that resembles NUTS. The current Candidate Countries for which data at regional level are collected are Montenegro, The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Albania and Turkey. Demographic data breakdown collected at regional level according to the above EU legal acts vary according to the NUTS level.

Main objectives of Sawe project are to bring researchers to the public, increase awareness of researcher’s profession, an important role in society and the impact of their work on our safe daily live with special attention to inspire the young to embark science careers. Sawe activities will bring closer to the public, especially to youngster, also the human, caring face of scientists with sense for humor and fun. For that purpose, we will implement awareness campaign with pre-events, “Stand-up Science” in 2018, 2019 and public-call for (pre)schoolchildren. On the last September, Fridays in 2018 (att. Cultural Heritage) and 2019 ERN will be organized with renewed programs in the festive and fun atmosphere. All Sawe events program activities aim at offering the public at large especially the young an opportunity to cooperate and socialize with researchers in a relaxed atmosphere. They include experiments, presentations, astronomy observations, workshops, researchers’ rock bands performed by researchers and students. Rawe ERN events will take place in Ljutomer, Maribor, Brežice, Koper, and Izola. Traditional cooperation of the primary and secondary schools’ winning teams of research and innovative projects in the frame of Youth for Maribor Progress (financed by Maribor Municipality) enable most promising youngsters to inspire their fellows and connect with the real scientists. The »European corners« will be in the heart of every RN location: Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellows' witnesses, information how one can become a researcher, EC’s various actions, programs, actions (incl. HRS4R, RESAVER) to present how EU cares about its researchers. Finally, yet importantly, the impact assessment includes pre-study and research prior and after events using a paper-pencil method. The impact assessment foresees intercultural comparison of results after using the same methodology as selected ERN leading partners: Prona-Montenegro, the Maastricht University and the University of Latvia.

Bringing Western Balkans closer to Innovation Union: An example of EURAXESS Regional Collaboration

Year 2012
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
'More than a decade ago, Lisbon Strategy highlighted the importance of investing in R&D as crucial factor of social development. Nowadays, though, in a period of economic instability, the investment in Research and Innovation is even more required and has been proposed as a reliable solution to major societal challenges. EU Member States renewed their commitments towards an Innovation Union by 2020. To this end, WeB-InUnion proposal will contribute in realising three of the Innovation Union (IU) commitments in the Western Balkan region so as to be an example of successful regional collaboration towards European integration. Specifically, nine (6 partners \ 3 associated partners) Western Balkan EURAXESS member organisations with different experiences and expertise will seek to promote Commitments #1, #4 and #30 of the IU flagship in Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, FYRoMacedonia, Greece, Montenegro and Serbia. Commitment #1 will be implemented by promoting the C&C principles and bringing research organisations closer to Human Resources Strategies respecting the C&C principles. Commitment #4 will be achieved by exploring the current situation on mobility issues in the region and preparing recommendations to stakeholders. Special emphasis will be given on the promotion of the EURAXESS Jobs portal as a tool to establish open recruitment practices. Finally, commitment #30 will be achieved by initiating or maintaining a dialogue with Diaspora researchers, investigating possible motives for their return in Europe and proposing relevant recommendations at national policy makers. In parallel with the above mentioned actions, the consortium, through its promotional activities, aims at adding value to the EURAXESS initiative by raising awareness of its services. The successful collaboration of the project’s partners is likely to set an example to other European regions that, if followed, could lead to a European-wide implementation of the Innovation Union’s commitments.'
