In the new EU financial perspective, we particularly focus on digitalization and the need to introduce it in both the public and private sectors, assisting our businesses in introducing Industry 4.0 into production processes, connecting public, private, higher education and research sectors in order to develop the economy of our County and, of course, preparing project stocks for new tenders.

We strive, within the limits of our possibilities and legal powers, to help in the establishment and bringing of higher education institutions – colleges and universities in our County, so that young people can study and remain employed in their County after their studies.

Connecting our colleges, scientific research institutions, private and public sector in order to create new products will contribute to the preservation of all of us, our children and future generations in this area, primarily in our picturesque County in the far east of our beautiful Croatia.
