Tirana, 23 November 2016 – COORP (Collaborative Online Research Platform), with the support of PERFORM, provided a three-day workshop on research project development and EU funds to 25 researchers and project managers from various universities, think tanks and public institutions in Albania.
The workshop sought to foster the competences of researchers and project managers in Albania on research project development through providing tailor-made training on how to develop research project proposals and establish successful professional networks. The workshop enabled the participants to practice skills, use tools and techniques, and develop project competencies which they will be able to apply in their work on project development.
The workshop, comes just after the Collaborative Online Research Platform was launched earlier in November. The platform offers networking opportunity for project development, information on new calls, partner search and collaborative research groups. It is currently focused on Albanian researchers and project managers, with the aim of expanding to South-East Europe and the academic diaspora.
