The BIOSINT project intends to improve the education and professional and personal development of students of biomedical sciences, as well as teachers and administrative staff of medical faculties, which participate in the project. Through the implementation of an international at home (IaH) framework, the intention is to strengthen the capacities and digital literacy and competencies of all participants and institutions as a whole. The international, multidisciplinary and intercultural character of IaH, as well as projected opportunities for future involvement of students and teachers and other HEIs who are not formal project participants, will promote social cohesion at the level of European identity, which in turn would create prerequisites for future sustainable development and innovation in European societies.

Recognizing the new reality and circumstances imposed by the current pandemic, the project takes advantage of digital education, which takes place from home and it will have international and interactive environment. In this way, the essential need for individual mobility of members of the academic community in order to exchange knowledge, experiences, attitudes and mutual cooperation is significantly compensated. This approach also makes that IaH has a very favourable cost-effectiveness profile, which is extremely important in the context of economic developments significantly affected by the pandemic. Overall, project activities we will stimulate the cooperation of biomedical HEI and enhance capacities and exchange of good practices, under the auspice of European Union (EU).

The BIOSINT project proposed a plenty of particular activities of participating HEI which require the engagement their overall capacities taking into account multidimensional, international and intercultural scopes. At the initial project phases, there is a need for creation and implementation of many managerial and quality assurance activities, then, analytical approach for the analysis of current situation in the field of IaH, both domestically and abroad, further, development of institutional strategies and sets of necessary documents related to the IaH and internationalization of curriculum (IoC) as well as the trainings of project participants and, finally, the array of dissemination and implementation tasks and actions aiming for exploitation, promotion and commercialization of BIOSINT project results, particularly directed at external stakeholders. Working within supporting environment of the project consortium, participating HEI from West Balkan countries (WBC) will reinforce their own capacities and increase educational and organizational performances.
