The ‘’Business development and Innovation’’ Programme will allocate more than 20 million euros to Croatian companies. Focus areas of investments and development will be Green Industry Innovation (manufacturing industry) and Blue Growth (marine, maritime, small scale tourism, and more). This will also be a first-time opportunity for Croatian companies to form strong relationships with Norwegian companies, universities and R&D centers for sharing knowledge and best practice.

Innovation Norway organized the digital conference for the launch of Croatia’s Business Programme on the 30th of June. After summer breaks, Innovation Norway will organize Regional Info Sessions at the Continental and Adriatic part of Croatia.
