The Faculty of Architecture is a partner in a new Erasmus+ KA203 project – Danubian SMCs – on the behalf of the University of Belgrade, which will last 35 months.

At longer term, the project will show how Danubian small and medium-sized cities can be better known and valorised with unconventional and creative teaching methods, getting to an inclusive and stimulative attitude both for teachers and learners and for local stakeholders.
