Centre for Social Innovation (ZSI) joined the ICT KOSEU project consortium as a project partner.

ZSI joined the ICT KOSEU project consortium as a project partner. The ICT KOSEU project is funded under the ICT Thematic Programme of the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme and aims to support Kosovo to obtain financing for research and development projects in the area of ICT and to increase its capacity to participate in FP7 ICT research and to collaborate with researchers in the European Union and has the following objectives:

  • Identification and analysis of ICT research capacities and priorities in Kosovo that will enable provision of recommendations for future co-operation initiatives between Kosovo and the EU within FP7 and beyond.
  • Aligning the national strategies and policies of Kosovo in the area of ICT research and information society with the regional (WB) and EU ones.
  • Strengthening of cooperative research links between European organisations, WBC organisations and relevant organisations in Kosovo, with the aim of establishing strategic partnerships that would facilitate Kosovo researchers.

The main tasks to be implemented during the project are:

  • Creating the ability in Kosovo to develop an ICT research strategy in line with the local capacity and needs, the state of the art and the priorities set by the European Research Area;
  • Implementing this strategy, for the benefit of businesses, government/administration and the citizens of Kosovo;
  • Creating wide spread understanding of ICT and its need for competitiveness, social welfare and the integration with the European Union;
  • Raising the level of Kosovo to that of the other Western Balkan countries, and in the long run to that of the countries of the European Union, with respect to their participation in the FP ICT programme.
  • Using the existing and future links of the Kosovo research community with other WBC researchers as a way to engage in collaborative research and participate in EU wide research.
