The Ministry of Education and Sports is the state authority presiding over Higher Education and Sports in Albania. In terms of science, it supports the activities of the relevant state institutions and of the personnel serving in these institutions. It encourages the development of scientific and technological activities even outside the state institutions, supporting a range of private (organisations and persons), domestic and foreign entities and NGOs and agencies etc, which are specifically concerned with scientific research in Albania. The state policies regarding scientific research and technological development activities are considered to be an integral part of the country's general economic and social development policies.
Six National Programmes of Scientific Research (NPSR) were drafted in order to address the entire scientific community in the country: Humane and Albanological Sciences, Systems and Information Technologies, Biotechnologies and Biological Diversity, Agriculture and Food, Health care, and Natural resources.
Bilateral S&T programmes with Greece and Italy, for example, form an important part of the international policy of the Ministry. The MOES also represents Albania in the field of Higher Education and R&D in all international organisations such as UNESCO, Council of Europe, etc.

Previous experience:
MOES has participated in the Steering Platform on Research for the Western Balkan countries and it contributed to the communication activities of the Information Office see-science.eu. MOES participates in the FP6 projects SEE-ERA.NET and ERA WESTBALKAN+
