The promotion of innovation and entrepreneurship has been and is one of the main objectives of the European University of Tirana since the very beginning. The next project, that supports this objective, is the Innovation Lab, whose inauguration took place in the presence of many guests; scientific researchers, students, representatives of SMEs, representatives of the National Office Erasmus +, Lëviz Albania, AADF, Soros etc. The Innovation Lab was created within the framework of the Rebus project, which focuses on developing and validating student competencies, co-funded by Erasmus + programs.
Present at the Innovation Laboratory inauguration ceremony were Head of the Office for Project Development and Partnerships in UET center, dr. Ketrina Cabiri, the President of the European University of Tirana, prof. dr. Adrian Civici and Prof. Dr. Ermira Qosja, the organizer of the "Ideja më e mirë e biznesit" competition.
The first beneficiaries of the workshop will be the 13 UET students from the Faculty of Economics, Business and Development who during the year 2018 presented their business ideas. These students will travel to Graz, Austria for a 2-week intensive training within the framework of Rebus. To help students, UET organized preparatory meetings with them on September 6th and 7th, where they were introduced to the Rebus project as well as other online platforms like Moodle, Mahara and Level 5.
