Riinvest Institute for Development Research began operations in May 1995 as a private non-profit research organisation. Its mission is to promote the modern economic development of Kosovo based on the philosophy of entrepreneurship. Forging partnerships and alliances through “Forum 2015″ (a joint initiative of Riinvest and Kosova Open Society Foundation), Riinvest has co-operated with different sectors of society in Kosovo, as well as with different international organisations and partners. Riinvest’s research activities and other services are based on international standards.

Riinvest has established good co-operation with different stakeholders, such as the Government of Kosovo, UNMIK, and the business and civil sectors, in order to conduct appropriate research activities.
