CINECA and KION has been involved in  the Creation of an Inter-University Service Center and a Telematic Network aimed at improving and strengthening the Albanian University System as the teaching source of the highest level in the country and at promoting scientific research. The Center offers software services to both universities and research institutes, and will manage the educational and research Network.

Established for the first time in Albania, the Albanian Academic Network is connecting all higher education and research institutions and agencies. Among other objectives, the project will contribute towards strengthening and boosting the management capacities of the Albanian universities and research institutions, thus developing high professionals’ competence and guaranteeing participation in different research programs/projects both at European and international level.
