In the Center for Digital Transformation of the Serbian Chamber of Commerce, the Innovation Hub of the Center for Digital Transformation (CDT HUB), dedicated to connecting traditional and innovative industries, was officially opened, and the Register of Subjects of the National Innovation System – the eInnovation platform – was presented.
The innovation hub of CDT will enable services intended for the IT industry and IT/Tech startups, such as access to innovation and connection with traditional industries, organization of events, hackathons, training and education, project support and coworking space, a common space for collaboration.
Predrag Nikolić, director of the Center for Digital Transformation (CDT) of the Serbian Chamber of Commerce, recalled that at the beginning of CDT’s work, six years ago, the goal was to provide support for the digital transformation of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises in Serbia, and stated that during that period more than 4,500 clients passed through the Center.
“In the meantime, a new goal has been imposed, which is to create a stronger channel of communication between the traditional economy and the scientific and technological part of the economy. The space of the Innovation Hub (CDT HUB) will serve startups and all technological companies that have or are looking for a way to a new idea, but also partner in working out all your ideas,” said Nikolić.
In order to survive nowadays, companies have to think about how they will implement technology and science in their business system.
“We will work on concrete mergers and solutions, and the idea is that CDT HUB becomes attractive for different funds that will look for their next investment here,” concluded Nikolić.
