EUT aims to transform itself into a hub of expertise in the field of social sciences, humanities, legal studies, economics, and information technology. EUT’s further aim is to become a centre of excellence for publishing high-quality research with a potentially important contribution in the national and regional policy debate.


EUT aims to consolidate its identity as the main center of knowledge production in Albania and to further its transformation from an institution of higher education focused almost exclusively on teaching to an elite research entity whose academic output is respected and contributes to the improvement of teaching and student experience. In 2015, UET signed "The European Charter for Researchers" and "The Code of Conduct”, aiming to promote scientific research, focusing on its quality.
