A memorandum of cooperation between 17 universities from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia and Montenegro, including the University of Mostar, was signed with the TPO Foundation under the auspices of the Embassy of the United Kingdom. The coordinator and memorandum signatory on behalf of the University of Mostar was Prof Davorka Topić Stipić, PhD.

Ambassador Matthew Field stressed the importance of the readiness of universities to work on the integration of gender equality into the higher education system so that the academic and wider community becomes a safe place for teachers and students.
