Serbia Innovates, a four-year project aimed at strengthening the innovation driven Serbian economy in the segments with the biggest potential for growth, identified four domains as the most promising areas within which the first superclusters can be formed on the territory of Serbia.

Launched by ICT Hub with the support of USAID, the overall goal of the project is to boost Serbia’s economy through innovation development. The central point of the project is creation of a Supercluster – a globally proven business model that will help us achieve the desired results in the local environment.

A comprehensive research was conducted within this project, which identified domains, that in combination with high technologies, have the greatest potential for growth and are a source of competitive advantage in Serbia. The selection was defined by parameters that prove the economic, technological and scientific potential for creating new solutions.

The defined four areas would participate in the pilot superclusters:

  1. High technology in agriculture and food industry
  2. Gaming environment and virtual reality
  3. Web3 and blockchain technologies
  4. Advanced solutions in medical technology and biotechnology

In the next phase, project aims to form a pilot supercluster for each domain, in order to test its true potential and invite all interested consortiums in these areas, who have great ideas and want to work on the formation of the Serbian innovation supercluster, to apply and test the real potential of their plans and teams.

Serbia Innovates will provide support the implementation of activities, capacity building, hiring experts from various fields, access to various sources of funding for innovative projects and marketing. The public call lasts until the end of February, and all information can be found here.
