June 21st, 2016 the Agricultural University of Tirana and Gateway Albania signed an Agreement of Cooperation while a special event on the campus of the university. Prof. Dr. Bari Musabelliu as rector of the university and Mrs Bertila Kola as Executive Director of Gateway Albania signed this agreement in front of a full occupied hall of the university. This agreement is the base for the university to have a professional partner on their side to establish efficient working groups and so named Think Tanks to connect the knowledge of the university with the possibilities of the economy. These working groups and think tanks are focussed on subsidies for reserach, information management for agricultural business and acquisition of business partners for needs of the university. One mostly interesting and important point of this coopearation agreement is, that Gateway Albania connected the university to an investment group from abroad, which is offering a cooperation with a german university, offering the cooperation by establishing two pilot projects to produce microalgues and offering the exchange of professors and students from this Albanian university to study in Germany.

Now it is the opportunity of the university to give this agreement life and to fulfill the offers, before it will go to another university into another country. Be curious.

We are glad and a bit proud to publish, that the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Agricultural University of Tirana and the Albanian Food Industry (AFI) closed a long-term contract of cooperation with our NGO Gateway Albania at April 18th, 2016.

One important point of this contract is to push, to establish and to promote farmer associations based on european successful models and also to design development programs. AFI will be responsible for the adaption of monitoring development programs in context with the livestock markets. See in this context the Food Safety Project of our sister-company Demeter Development Sh.p.k. Gateway Albania as Non-governmental Organization will be in additional responsible for the technology transfer from the European Union to Albania. In additional content of the cooperation is to train farmers and stakeholders and, of course, to try to establish a functional processing industry and to support the export of Albanian goods. This symbiose of knowledge, contacts and international economy is needed in Albania and we will realize a lot of advantages for the faculty, the students, the economy and our members.
