This move signals a nationwide thrust towards developing smart infrastructure and sustainable communities across various local administrations.

The announcement was made during the inaugural gathering in Kragujevac for the project “Journey to a Smarter Future: Building Smarter and Sustainable Communities in Serbia”. This initiative is a collaborative effort spearheaded by the Nordic Business Alliance, in partnership with the embassies of Nordic countries in Serbia—Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Finland—as well as the National Alliance for Local Economic Development (NALED) and the Standing Conference of Towns and Municipalities (SKGO).

Projections indicate that by 2050, smart cities will house 60 percent of the global population, highlighting the critical importance of initiatives like Serbia’s in shaping future urban living environments.
