Research Institute of Science and technology is a public institution governed by its Board of Directors. Its mission is to enhance science and technology in Albania.  


The institute has several research groups which focus on the following areas of research: 

Mathematics Education

Albanian boy
One of our main goals is to help with curriculum development in all levels in Albania. We have undertaken the task of revising and republishing most of the texts   of mathematics used in middle school and high school in Albania. There are three main groups working on the math education:
  • Mathematics in elementary school
  • Mathematics in High School
  • University mathematics

AIM members have organized a wide array of  research conferences worldwide, such as 
  • NATO ASI, Ohrid Macedonia (2014)
  • Nato ASI, Vlora, Albania (2008)
  • Applications of Computer Algebra, ACA 2010, Vlora 2009. 
and many special sessions of the American Math. Soc. or other conferences in their own institution. For more information on recent conferences click here

Project Galois 

Project Galois includes publication of undergraduate and graduate level texts in algebra, number theory, algebraic geometry and related areas. 

Our immediate projects are the publication of the following textbooks:
  • Calculus of one variable
  • Calculus of several variables
  • Linear algebra
  • Differential Equations
We organize a yearly conference in Albania on math education. More information about the Project Galois can be found here. 


The Institute publishes the only Albanian research journal in mathematics, the Albanian Journal of Mathematics.  The journal is in its XI year of publication and has published over 150 research articles.  It is indexed by MathSciNet and ZbMath. More information can be found by clicking in the logo or by going to the website of the journal at 

For archives of the journal go to:  archives.albanian-j-math.com


The institute has its own repository at repo.risat.org. Interested individuals or institutions who would like to use this repository to post their work or host their journals can contact us. 

Network of researchers 

We have a large database of Albanian researchers and graduate students in Albania and abroad. We distribute by email a news bulletin every two months. If you like to receive this news bulletin, have full access to the issues of the Albanian J. Math, or keep in touch with mathematicians in Albania, please fill out this form
