GreenFORCE, is an EU Horizon 2020 project, which aims at fostering excellence in the “Western Balkans’ green transition” scientific research and innovation of Co-PLAN (Albania), CEA (North Macedonia), and UB GEF (Serbia), as a means to enhancing their research profile, strengthening research and management capacities of their staff, and contributing to convergence between Western Balkans (WB) and EU research capacities, as well as to wider policy initiatives for the WB region.

This objective is to be reached through the twinning partnership of five organisations that will work closely to produce territorial knowledge through exploratory research and institutional learning; will transfer and exchange knowledge among partner organisations through applying the knowledge management cycle; and will engage in networking for sharing, cross-fertilizing and amplifying knowledge at the societal level. Ultimately, the ambition is to transcend from individual learning to enabling institutional learning, making sure that research and research management practices become institutionalised within the recipient organisations. GreenFORCE will contribute to the impacts of the destination “Improved access to excellence” by enabling pathways of cooperation, exchange, co-design, co-creation with academia, civil society and policy-makers at the regional level.which aims to encourage excellence in scientific research and innovation for the “green transition of the Western Balkans” implemented by the partners Co-PLAN (Albania), CEA (North Macedonia) and UB-GEF (Serbia), as local partners and POLITO (Italy) and Nortregio (Sweden) to improve the research profile, strengthening the research and management capacities and contribute to the convergence between the research capacities of the Western Balkans (WB) and the EU.
