This study aims to provide a general overview of the field of education and scientific research by presenting the current situation across the Western Balkans through a comparative approach, trying to analyze previous experiences in the last decade and current performance, obstacles and the results of the respective countries.
Redi Shtino: The greatest responsibility lies with our institutions that have not given due attention to the commitments that we have at the European project level and program level. I invite you to help us and together with the European delegation we can program together an intervention to make a definitive contribution to the identification of research funding in the country.
Gledis Gjipali: There are many deficiencies; there are many areas that are uncovered either with human resources or with infrastructure of course.
