Online Book Platform

Within the Culture for Change program, FLOSSK has held workshops for scanning and editing Kosovo newspapers from the 90s together with a number of young volunteers and students who have gained knowledge of digital technology as well as gained digital material editing and archiving skills.

During the project, a semi-automatic scanner was built, which facilitated the scanning process and which will be used by readers and researchers even after the completion of the project.

The online platform with prepared publications will be launched on October 1, 2020, and will contain old publications that are accessible through an open model.

This project was made possible by the Culture for Change program. The project is funded by the European Union, managed by the European Union Kosovo, and implemented by Qendra Multimedia and Goethe-Institut.

Sensor Stations

Building the first air quality and weather station, within the “Sensor Stations” project.

These stations will be built together with students and teachers of six high schools in Prishtina, Vushtrri, Lipjan, Prizren, Suhareka, and Rahovec.

The ”Sensor Stations” project teaches students to build their own hardware, produce and analyze environmental data, and also aims to raise awareness of air quality and climate change, and scale citizen science activities in Kosovo.

This is an EU funded project managed by the European Union Kosovo and implemented by Balkan Green Foundation and Institute for Development Policy (INDEP).

Free Libre Open Source Software Kosova (FLOSSK) is a non-governmental organization based in Prishtina established in 2009 in order to support, promote and develop free and open source software, open and participatory knowledge, education in information technologies through open courseware, and open standards, culture and open society using free communication.
