FROM THE DIRECTOR

A word from the Director

“Supposing is good, but finding out is better.” - Mark Twain

A newly born university, opened to students only 4 years ago, “Hëna e Plotë” (Bedër) University has implemented various research projects in cooperation with both governmental   and non-governmental institutions. The university has hosted a number of national and international conferences and these activities have effectively contributed to the social and cultural development of not only our student body and academic staff, but also to the development of the community as a whole.

Supporting the aspirations of the “Hëna e Plotë” (Bedër) University to become a well-known institution in the country and in the region in the fields of Social Sciences and Humanities,  the Office of Academic Research has become the forefront in creating and sustaining the environment to foster excellence in research. While the academic units of our university carry out research individually and collaboratively, the research office is oriented towards providing assistance to the faculty, staff, and qualitative students in their efforts to acquire sponsored opportunities. Therefore, the Research Office promotes the research capabilities of the University to funding organizations,  and supports,  reviews, validates, and negotiates the proposals and checks their  accordance with all related policies and regulations. İn fulfilling this goal we are very eager to assist endeavors of researchers for their own advantage and for the benefit of the university, the country and the region.

As both a place and a community, the research at “Hëna e Plotë” (Bedër) provides a home for interdisciplinary conversation.  It plays a meaningful role; in progressing our understanding of the world in which we live; in generating creative ideas for fostering the culture of dialog in the country and in the region; in tailoring the research activity in acordance with the demands of the transitional societies of the region; and in changing the trajectory of the youth towards creativity and innovation. 

I kindly invite you to explore our website and learn more about our research activities and other research-related information.
