On 21.09.2022, the Dean of the Faculty of Law of the University of Pristina, Prof. Avni Puka, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Scientific Director of the Research Center "Lab for Entrepreneurship and Development - LEAD", Prof. Bruno S. Sergi from Harvard University. LEAD, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States, was originally part of the Institute for Quantitative Social Sciences at Harvard University. The main objectives of this research center are related to the creation and dissemination of knowledge on entrepreneurship and development issues across cultural and disciplinary boundaries.
The main purpose of the Memorandum of Understanding is the creation and development of cooperation, with an emphasis on the organization of joint activities and the exchange of experiences. More specifically and within the areas of mutual interest, both institutions aim to implement joint research activities, joint publications and conferences, the exchange of research databases, as well as the organization of lectures and seminars.
LEAD now also has a series of books that it publishes in collaboration with the publisher 'Emerald Publishing Group' (https://books.emeraldinsight.com/page/series-detail/lab-for-entrepreneurship-and development/) and a specific field of cooperation will also be the development of joint publishing activities.
