National Strategy of Science, Technology and Innovation 2009-2015
UNESCOVENICE news (Albania) 4-03-2010 : A bilingual volume of the Albanian STI Strategy, approved by the Albanian Parliament in August 2009, has just been published with UNESCO Venice Office support, within the framework of the One UN Programme of Albania.
Formulated with UNESCO’s technical expertise and advice, on the basis of extensive national consultation with a large panel of representatives of the scientific community and of concerned Ministries, the Strategy constitutes the first step towards building a ‘knowledge-based’ economy and society in Albania.
It provides the country’s medium-term vision for the period 2009-2015 with regard to science and research while focusing on ‘’ the achievement of excellence in a small number of priority areas by 2015, through the concentration of national and international resources and in close cooperation with Europe, as well as through the provision of systematic support for innovation and technology transfer to cater for the needs of the productive sector”.
