Abstract

The project involves networking of students and scientific researchers from Western Balkan countries for creating dataset base of the latest chemo-metric approaches for environmental pollution/protection and ecological effects as well. Even the environmental pollution is a global problem, the latest research indicate that the Western Balkan countries are significantly affect with the environmental pollution. Furthermore, the Western Balkan countries still deals with the problem of poor population awareness for environmental protection. Therefore, this project idea is to unite knowledge from Western Balkan countries and share with youth from this region, increasing the environmental protection awareness within students. Therefore, the students will have the main role in lunching the environmentally friendly aspects for creating novel chemo-metric models in environmental sciences. The beneficiary effect for the Western Balkan students will be creating long-term valuable and sustainable correlations. The project has regional focus, networking six universities from the Western Balkan countries (students and scientific experts-University professors). Furthermore, this project has a national focus for the students from three state Universities from North Macedonia (students from “Goce Delčev” University in Štip, “Ss Kiril and Methodius” University in Skopje and University in Tetovo). Even the environmental pollution is a global problem, the latest research indicate that the Western Balkan countries are significantly affected with the pollution, pointing strongly on heavy metal industry, uncontrolled xenobiotic introduction in the different parts of the environment, electronic waste disposal etc. Furthermore, the Western Balkan countries still deals with the problem of poor population awareness for environmental protection. Therefore, this project will involve regional and national students and scientific researches in order to provide novel chemo-metric methodology and beneficial environmental protection methods. The project intends to involve three national and five regional universities (WBAA members). Each regional university will participate with one scientific expert (university professor) and two students (WBAA member). Two national universities (“Ss Kiril and Methodius” University in Skopje and State University in Tetovo) will participate with one scientific expert and three students. “Goce Delčev” University will participate with 10 scientific experts and 15 students. Four representatives from Non-members institutions (Ministry of education and science, Ministry of environment and physical planning and Academy of science and art of North Macedonia) will be invited as well. Participants from North Macedonia, Albania, Kosovo, Serbia, Bosnia and Hercegovina and Montenegro shall collaborate for the benefit of the whole region for several critical environmental issues. Overall objective: Use of Universities’ expertise in creation new valuable, suitable and accurate chemometric models for predicting and measuring the contamination level in different parts of the Environment (air, soil, water, plant food). Creating a regional scale of experience for determining the anomalous parts of the Environment. Proposing new ideas for national and regional strategies for Environmental protection. Promoting new ideas for Inter-university cooperation. Creating sustainable University network for continuous cooperation in the field of Environmental monitoring, pollution and protection (both, for students and researchers).
