Activities launched for establishing science and technology park in Macedonia


The Fund for innovation and Technology Development (FITR) in cooperation with the Ministry of Information Society and Administration (MIOA) organized Monday a meeting to determine the activities for establishment of a science and technology park in Macedonia.

The meeting, which brought together representatives of the FITR, MIOA, the PM’s cabinet, international consulting company ‘DAI’ and the EU Delegation to Macedonia, resulted in an agreement for the project to be realized in several phases.

The science and technology park is an organization managed by specialised professionals, whose main aim is to increase the wealth of the community by promoting the culture of innovation and the competitiveness of its associated businesses and knowledge-based institutions. To enable these goals to be met, the park stimulates and manages the flow of knowledge and technology amongst universities, R&D institutions, companies and markets; it facilitates the creation and growth of innovation-based companies through incubation and spin-off processes; and provides other value-added services together with high quality space and facilities.

The first phase of establishing such park in Macedonia is carried out under the support of EU funds.
