The University of Prishtina has over 15 laboratories from all faculties. These resources are being underutilized due to the lack of research and development projects. VentureUP aims at increasing the efficiency of research and development methods through initiating use of these labs to research. With a pool of around 10 thousand new students each year, there is huge potential for the University of Prishtina in developing research projects that lead to efficient use of university resources as well as stimulate innovation.
VentureUP already has an agreement with the University of Prishtina for access to all these labs. We believe that through unbureaucratic institutions like VentureUP, the University of Prishtina will raise to the levels of competing with world universities not only with the skills they obtain during their education but also with value creating and innovation.
Currently, it is very difficult for UP students to test their ideas in labs and their capacity and ideas often go to waste. Through functionalizing and renovating UP labs, we provide an opportunity for UP students that they did not have for a very long time; an integrated university with extracurricular activities, access to additional external training, access to advanced workshops, access to finance, and support for entrepreneurship ideas would not be complete without efficient use and access to laboratory facilities.
VentureUP also provides access to these labs for all start-up participants. We believe that as a result, the use of labs will also lead to obtaining many different patents. Since these labs are being provided within the University of Prishtina facilities, obtaining a patent will be of great value for the university as they will now officially be the leading supporters of Research and Development, a component most valued in other western universities.
