Short Description

"Metroresearch" has functioned as an integral part of the scientific and academic activity of PHEI "Metropolitan Tirana" University since its creation and operation and recently is registered as an independent Center in late 2015.

"Metroresearch" provides suitable spaces: mentoring, management, consulting for strategic partners in the development of research projects. The academic and administrative staff will receive comprehensive information of the progress and results of projects developed through presentations and workshops.

"Metroresearch" established the incubator inviting students from Metropolitan Tirana University as well as from other universities, aiming at encouraging students and youngsters in identifying and implementing innovative ideas in information technology but not only. These ideas may serve as start-up potential business that can operate in each relevant field.

Actually we have created strategic partnerships with EU member countries’ research institutions like Italy, Greece, Spain, Cyprus, Hungary, etc. as well as with regional partners like Kosovo, Macedonia.

In a period of less than a year, Metroresearch team has developed and submitted application for INTERREG, IADSA, IPA - CBC and is in the process of developing LIFE and H2020 Applications and successfully implemented two projects – Virtual Cicero with the National Art Gallery during 2016 and the initiation of the Incubator 2016.  

The team also explored internal grant programs especially in the field of applied technologies for monitoring environmental issues and culture
