Institute for Development Research Riinvest
In the presence of researchers, journalists, students, communication and software development experts, as well as other interested parties, Riinvest Institute launched the Data Dissemination Platform and a Mobile Application. Both these projects were supported by “Open Society Foundation – Think Tank Fund.”
The electronic Data Dissemination Platform provides data gathered by Riinvest’s researchers over a 13 year period, starting from 2000 to 2013.
These data have been collected by applying advanced methodologies for social and economic studies covering representative samples of small and medium enterprises operating in Kosovo. The platform contains 72 variables, which cover a wide range of areas related to the development of the private sector such as enterprises’ performance and characteristics, capital investment and business practices, as well as barriers of doing business.
Riinvest data bring evidence of the developments in the private sector in Kosovo for a period of time that little record is available for. The Data Dissemination Platform, will be of great use to researchers, journalists, students, and everyone else interested in the country’s private sector performance.
Also, Riinvest Institute launched Riinvest mobile application, available for iOS and Android operating systems.
The new app enables users to grasp in a more convenient and quick way all of Riinvest’s content, including news, publications, video materials and other related materials published by the institute. An innovative feature of the Riinvest app is the Riinvest Calculator, which contains 9 calculators that enable users to calculate different daily expenses, as well as a currency exchange calculator.
This project was supported by “Open Society Foundation – Think Tank Fund”, whose mission is the creation of vibrant and tolerant societies, whose governments are accountable and open to the participation of all people.
