International Credit Mobility: cooperation between Czech Republic and Albania

Agricultural University of Tirana (AUT) is one of the leading universities in Albania in terms of the development of international activities. The project on the Albanian side is implemented by the Faculty of Economy and Agribusiness (FEA).

The mobility is mainly focused on the exchange of teachers (6-day stays) and Ph.D. students (3 and 5 months) and bachelor and master students (5 months). The mobility from Tirana is planned for bachelor and master students (two students per semester which means 4 students in the project period of one year). Students have the opportunity to study selected subjects at the Faculty of Tropical AgriSciences (CZU Prague) in English. The teachers’ visits are planned as a 6-day stay, where teachers will be mainly engaged in the teaching of Quantitative Research Methods and Agricultural Policy.

The lecturers have adopted new methods of teaching, such as e-learning and the use of online modules. Moreover, a strong focus is given to the exchange of research knowledge and the increased access to scientific literature.

Adoption of environmentally friendly agricultural practices as well as youth migration are the main topics in the field of education, research and technology transfer. We emphasise the gender and institutional reforms as well as structural impact assessment at the sector level in the context of EU alignment.
