The Kosovo Research and Education Network (KREN) has been accepted as an associate member of the European network GÉANT, one of the largest and most advanced research and education networks in the world, connecting more than 50 million users in 10,000 institutions in Europe and supporting all scientific disciplines. The request initiated by the Ministry of Economy and Environment within the Kosovo Digital Economy Project was accepted by the GÉANT General Assembly by a majority vote. This membership brings many benefits initially to universities and colleges in Kosovo, where Kosovar students and professors will now have access to European scientific literature and opportunities for development and research at European level.
