In the coming period, Innovation Norway will launch "Business development and Innovation" Programme that will allocate more than 20 million euros to Croatian companies. The purpose of the Programme is to increase value creation and sustainable growth in the Croatian business sector.


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 will organize the digital conference for the launch of Croatia’s Business Programme on the 30th of June. A week after the conference, in the first part of July, Innovation Norway’s Zagreb office will organize Regional Info Sessions for potential applicants in the cities in the continental part of Croatia. In the partnership with the Croatian Chamber of Economy, these sessions will take place in Osijek (7.7.2020.), Slavonski Brod (8.7.2020.), Varazdin (9.7.2020.), Bjelovar (14.7.2020.) and Karlovac (15.7.2020.). After summer breaks, Innovation Norway will organize Regional Info Sessions at the Adriatic part of Croatia.
