“Open science and internationalisation” 



During the recent years, the University of Elbasan “Aleksandër Xhuvani”, as a higher education institution in Albania, has had in its focus two crucial valuable elements: the students’ inclusiveness and the university internationalization. A considerable number of students have participated and have been involved in several mobility programs in international universities. These students shave enriched their knowledge through the best European experiences and have exchanged positive academic experiences and practices. 

The focus and the activities of this period act jointly with the university’s statute and the implementation of the National Strategy for Education 2021-2026. Within the framework of this strategy implementation and in continuation of the activities held so far, the organization of the First Scientific Student Conference entitled “Open science and internationalization” is programmed. Such an initiative comes as a result of the students` similar experiences who have participated in different mobility programs abroad. Completing the higher education mission and referring to the National Strategy for Education in which “The scientific research activity aims at improving the quality of education, by offering to the academic staff and students the opportunity to be involved in independent research, in the context of the stable professional development and academic career”, the organization of this conference is considered as a Must to improve the students` capabilities in the application of the scientific research methods and independent research. The national and international participation of the students in this conference expects from the students to bring new ideas and points of view, to exchange experiences of academic and professional level and create the opportunity for collaboration in the field of scientific research among the students.  

The organization of this conference is a good opportunity to encourage scientific research and academic discussion within the students` community. Through such initiatives, the University of Elbasan aims to encourage and motivate the students in the field of scientific research and to promote the student’s models of inclusiveness and participation, following the best European experiences and practices.
