Dear Colleagues and Guests

The Conference, as an ideal platform for regional strategic networking, aims to bring together scientists from the partner institutions of the alliance to present their projects, share their knowledge and identify the research, business and policy challenges in this area for the decade to come.
The CCEDEP will also provide a discussion on the development of the opportunities that societies have in terms of energy, adaptation to climate change, well-being that will reduce poverty, the inclusion of environmental information in the educational process, as well as the areas of cooperation, economics, international law, green economy and sustainable development.
The expectations of this conference are aimed at fostering discussion and co-operation in relation to the stated topics on a European and global level.
For the last 8 years, CCEDEP conferences have been held in-person, welcoming scientist from Central-Eastern European countries. The pandemic year 2020 postponed the 9th conference as meeting in person was impossible due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Your safety is our priority and that is the reason we will organize the 9th CCEDEP conference in a hybrid way, to give the opportunity to the entire scientific community to attend the conference in persona or virtually.
The 9th CCEDEP is organized by the University of Shkoder “Luigj Gurakuqi” in association with the Alliance of Central-Eastern European Universities. The abstract submission is now open. For more information, please visit the abstract submission section and make sure to remember the important dates.
