On June 17-18, 2016 UNYT organized for the second time an innovation weekend,under the experiences of Adriatinn weekends.
The weekend’s purpose to promote entrepreneurship, collaboration and creativity among SMEs, students, researchers, freelancers and everyone interested in innovation and entrepreneurship, has proved to be successful. The event was greeted by the Deputy Rector prof. Konstantinos Giakoumis and the Head of Economics and Finance Department prof. Suzana Guxholli. The coordination of the event was conducted by Dr. Andromahi Kufo.

There were 10 teams participating from different universities and high schools in Tirana. The teams were coached by UNYT professors during the coaching sessions and presented their ideas before a Jury. The Jury was comprised by academics and professionals (Dr. Perparim Dervishi, Mr. Dritan Mezini and Mr. Teodor Vevecka), who evaluated according to specific criteria the competing teams. The winning team with the project “Fast and safe food”, comprised by Brisilda Kuqo, Aristea Vllahu, Klajdo Pilua, Deborah Hatellari and Rexhina Xhaferi, has presented an innovative idea and has been evaluated from the Jury for its originality and simplicity at the same time. Such a remarkable event has added value to all the participants and has promoted their ideas for further development.
