On October 28, 2015, the Rector of Epoka University, Prof. Dr. Güngör Turan, held a meeting at the premises of the University with Mr. Martin Dietz, Senior Advisor at Helvetas Swiss Intercooperation and Mr. Ardian Haçkaj from the Cooperation and Development Institute (CDI).
During the meeting, Mr. Dietz provided a general overview of the PERFORM project financed by Helvetas and coordinated by CDI. PERFORM as a long-term project aims at increasing the quality of research in social sciences and in establishing a systematic linkage between such research and policy-making by also establishing platforms and forums where researchers and policy-makers can come together in Albania and in the other countries of the region.
Mr. Dietz and Mr. Haçkaj praised the quality of education provided at Epoka University as well as its commitment and support for the further improvement of research output by its faculty, and also expressed their belief that the active involvement of Epoka University at this project will prove to be beneficial for both the University itself as well as for the success of the PERFORM project.
