Research Networking Day ľUniversity Ismail Qemali, Vlora

In the framework of COORP’s intention to strengthen its links to the universities and research centres at the regional level, COORP Team organised a Networking Day at the University Ismail Qemali in Vlora on 10 January 2018.


The Networking Day was organised to facilitate the cooperation between institutions around COORP and the establishment of research groups and their capacities to apply for various funding.

Dr Fabjan Lashi and Dr Blerjana Bino, co-founders of COORP, introduced the platform and the network as well as the opportunities offered for researchers in Albania and particularly in Vlora. In addition, they introduced PERFORM and the ways in which researchers could work together and with local government and approach PERFORM to propose interventions. The discussions in the sessions and the follow up informal meetings helped to identify researchers that were highly motivated, skilled and proactive and interested to join COORP. This helps COORP to widen and strengthen the research core group. Finally, the need to work towards an enabling environment of cooperation by bringing together researchers from different fields and regions was emphasised.
