PEMA | Progetto EMilia-Romagna per l'Albania

PEMA is the technical assistance component of the “VET through Innovation” programme, designed to support vocational education and training in Albania through the establishment of a multifunctional center of excellence in the agricultural and agro-industrial sector in the Fier region (Albania) that will include the “Rakip Kryeziu” school in Fier and the Agro-mechanical school of Lushnje. The ""VET through Innovation” programme is based on an agreement between the Italian cooperation in Albania and the Albanian Government.

  • Axis 1 - Multifunctional center of excellence: capacity building for the dual and vocational education;
  • Axis 2 - Development of VET curricula;
  • Axis 3 - Multifunctional center for the sustainability of the school-enterprise (research, technological transfer, employment and business development);
  • Axis 4 - Policy advice for the Albanian MEF and involvement of Emilia-Romagna stakeholders.
