The fifth REBUS project Steering Committee meeting was hosted by University of Montenegro in Podgorica, during November 7-9. Back to back, the follow up event was organized, aiming to evaluate results of piloting activities implemented and lessons learnt in the national implementations of REBUS: highlights, implementation challenges and future perspectives. Partners’ feedback was assessed and joint evaluation on key aspects of the REBUS programme was made, relating to its content (is it adequate, useful, complete), methodology (what worked well, what didn’t, what could partners learn from each other), project prepared online resources (have they been used and at what extent, what still needs to be done), so as on sustainability (REBUS integration at partner universities).
