At the Berlin Process Summit, a third campus of the College of Europe was officially inaugurated in Tirana. Set to commence operations in September next year, this campus will primarily focus on the European transformation and integration of Southeast Europe.

Ursula von der Leyen, the President of the European Commission, and Charles Michel, the President of the European Council, hailed the inauguration as a move of great symbolic significance. They expressed optimism that the opening of the College of Europe’s campus in Albania is a precursor to the Western Balkans’ accession to the EU.

Michel emphasised that this is the newest campus of the College of Europe since 1992, when the second campus was launched in Poland. This comes at a time when the entirety of the Western Balkans is gearing up for a future within the EU, akin to the preparations of Central European countries in the 1990s. “This campus will bridge the region and the EU, fostering a shared European future. Its opening bears profound symbolic importance,” stated Michel.
