The Faculty of Electronic Engineering in cooperation with NiCAT cluster started a project “SYNERGY – Systemic cooperation in the field of advancing the curriculum, teaching process, practices and introducing the new employees to business in companies between the Faculty of Electronic Engineering and companies from the field of advanced technologies.”
NiCAT cluster and the Faculty of Economics have, based on the realization of the previous project “MARKET TECH”, realized the project called “Economy and advanced technologies – partnership for the future”.
Start-up Academy is designed for those who are interested in realizing their ideas and who want to contribute to their personal development by forming a team of at least two people around a business idea that involves advanced technology and develop it with the help of a mentor.
The aim of the project was to establish cooperation between successful people, companies, business informal groups and associations from Silicon Valley and San Francisco with a local community through the presentation of the potential of the Nis region in the field of advanced technologies.
The aim of project was establishing cooperation between successful people (businessmen, investors, engineers, lecturers), informal groups and associations from China with Nis companies by presenting the potential of the Nis region in the high technology.
Start Up Academy was the concept of three-day intensive training and mentoring for developing business ideas from the very beginning, until its presentation to investors. Teams had the opportunity to learn how to develop and sell their business ideas and share roles in the team. Also, they learned what was important for construction business plan and how to present it to investors.
The Market Tech project had aim:
• to create a mechanism for increasing the competitiveness of the company in the advanced technology industry
• to improve cooperation between companies and the Faculty of Economics
• to promote a good practice in entrepreneurship in the field of advanced technologies
Project „IT – chance for all" is ICT Cluster Academy which is a course of hi-tech education and internships based on recruitment needs of businesses with the aim to employ or increase employability of the unemployed in Nis region. Project is implemented by Nis Cluster of Advanced Technologies with GIZ ACCESS and Development Agency Serbia financial support.
Reasons for the Project Initiation: The absence of a clear picture of the development and investment capacities, possibilities and potentials of the city of Nis and the degree of development of the advanced technology sector, both in the local community and on the national and regional levels, insufficient communication between system institutions and research, development and educational institutions with the manufacturing sector and their poor cooperation.
