UET encourages a culture of knowledge sharing and horizontal links between HEIs, CSOs, research centers, government organizations and stakeholders. As such, UET strongly encourages the mobility of staff and students in the region, the European Union and beyond. In addition, UET supports staff turnover in Quadruple Helix domains, such as government, business, media and civil society.

On these principles, UET is very committed to internationalization of study programs, academic processes and staff development and research through internationalization opportunities.

In this regard, UET has successfully established the Office of Project Development and Partnerships in order to develop international projects, strategic partnerships and facilitate applications for research grants.

In this aspect of internationalization and networking for partnership development, UET has established the Next Europe network (download here) in order to bring together key universities in the Western Balkans as well as research centers in Europe with a research expertise and interest in region.
