Launch of centralized learning management system for Albania’s regulatory authorities
This week, the EU funded Food Safety Project (FSP) together with the Albanian
School of Public Administration (ASPA) launched a centralized learning
management system hosted by ASPA to support capacity building for officials within
the Albanian authorities (namely; Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the
National Food Authority, the National Authority of Veterinary and Plant Protection
and the Food Safety and Veterinary Institute).
The FSP in collaboration with ASPA have worked to develop this centralized system
which is critical for ensuring sustainability of capacity building outputs from the FSP
following its conclusion later this year.
Team Leader Vanessa Cooling and the food safety expert, Michele Riblet facilitated
the launch held at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development which gathered
over 30 government officials.
ASPA Director of e-learning Enrriko Kapiti together with training managers Aurora
Plaku and Janela Faniko outlined the system, demonstrating the training materials
available for the key areas under Chapter 12 of the EU acquis, namely, Food Safety,
Veterinary and Phytosanitary.
