European Research Area (ERA) Country Report 2023 for Kosovo

Summary of the report

Kosovo is gradually aligning to the ERA Priorities. The participation of research and innovation (R&I) actors from Kosovo in international R&I programmes (Horizon Europe, COST, Erasmus+) is increasing, but could still be improved. Kosovo is developing a Smart Specialisation Strategy (S3) to guide R&I priority setting and excellence. The lack of financial incentives to strengthen R&I performers’ collaboration within the country and internationally remains a challenge.

Currently, there is minimal collaboration between academic institutions and industrial actors. Therefore, the government should encourage joint initiatives in the form of triple and quadruple helix collaboration to stimulate private sector investments in R&I.
