Event Title

The development and implementation of National PhD School in ICT in Kosovo Education System

Session

Computer Science and Communication Engineering

Description

Despite ever accelerating workplace changes, including rapidly expanding technological access and fast improving information and communication systems, Kosovo still lack of national research program, and thereby also lack of research in Higher Education Systems. Currently in the national level, Kosovo spends only 0.1% of GDP on research. The Kosovo education system is not fully developed to provide a high quality research-based education, including in Information and Communication Technology. This paper stems from an EU funded project which aims to develop and implement a non-existing National PhD School in ICT, in Kosovo, as a solution for the identified problems and its root causes. These problems are to a high degree related to lack of adequate infrastructure and human capacities. The project is run in collaboration with 7 consortia partner and is coordinated by Linnaeus University, Sweden. This country is listed by the World Bank as the second worldwide leading country in terms of research related to GDP, i.e., 3.26 % of Swedish GDP. Further, according to OECD Sweden is one of the leaders in terms of R&D. By using the model of Sweden, adapted to the Kosovo context, this project will contribute to increasing the research infrastructure of Kosovo and the level of academic human capacities. In the long run the project results will contribute to policies which increase government investments in research.
