Abstract

In today's sustainable agricultural production, comprehensive care for plant health is essential. Apart from modern diagnostic methods, it includes the application of sophisticated plant
protection methods based on the latest scientific knowledge. Without the highly educated experts who are well acquainted with the issue of all aspects of plant health in sustainable agricultural
production, it is impossible to achieve required goals. The HarlSA project (Harmonization and Innovation in PhD Study Programs for Plant Health in Sustainable Agriculture) was approved under
the Erasmus+ program in the field of Strengthening Capacities in Higher Education on the European Movement politics and culture (EACEA). This project has the ambition to harmonize and
modernize doctoral education in the Western Balkans countries and to create a network of researchers capable of responding to current challenges in plant health. The project aims to provide
support for modernization and internationalization of higher education in the field of plant health and to contribute to co-operation between the European Union and the countries of Western
Balkans in implementing the European Union's policy on plant health. It also seeks to ensure the acquisition of scientific knowledge and the transfer of skills and competences to achieve
sustainable use of pesticides and the application of the major principles of integrated plant protection in agricultural production. The project was submitted by the University of Zagreb, Faculty
of Agriculture, in cooperation with partners from the EU countries (Croatia, Italy, Bulgaria and Greece) and countries of the so-called Western Balkans (WBC) (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia
Montenegro and Albania). The project will achieve specific goals such as: harmonize, improve and modernize doctoral programs in the area of plant health among partner universities, to
increase the ability of the PhD to respond to global health problems; to develop a common framework and a draft curriculum for an international joint doctoral study in plant health; to foster
regional integration in the field of research and education of plant health within the Western Balkan countries and between the countries of the Western Balkans and the EU countries
