Adriapol can stimulate job creation in a structured way by encouraging innovation, skills, & development of industry, aligned with national policies and donor goals. Building on the concept of “triple helix”, bringing together universities,government & industries, this eco-system will function on integrated approaches at the regional level with special attention to regional variances related to problems, such as inequality. Leading universities, such as Marin Barleti in Albania and its academic partners, provide a “one stop shopping” experience for the industry as they perform executive education; student recruitment and engagement, corporate relations through colleges, schools and research centers. Adriapol has decided to take this nontraditional role as it considers it a major potential source of innovation. We try to combine skills gained in a localized setting that lead to employment through participation in the local labor market; we have jump-started projects of self-employment.
