Regional innovation conference, Innovation Talk 2018, to be held on Thursday, 29th November 2018, in Kombank Dvorana, Belgrade (14, Dečanska Street), starting at 10 o’clock.

The conference is organized by Color Media Communications, under the auspices of the Cabinet of the Minister of Innovation and Technological Development of the Government of the Republic of Serbia.

The regional conference Innovation Talk 2018 will bring together all relevant stakeholders of the regional innovation ecosystem. In order for a country to be considered innovative and develop new technologies, it is necessary to build a stable and efficient innovation ecosystem. The Innovation Talk 2018 conference will contribute to the creation of a favourable business and innovation environment, particularly through networking and creating new opportunities for cooperation between regional stakeholders. During the conference, there will be a ministerial panel with the regional ministers in charge of innovation, development, science, research, economy and other related fields as participants. 

As a part of the conference programme, speakers will present their digital agendas, projects and examples of mutual cooperation, thus giving a positive example and support to further development of cooperation between different groups / participants in innovative ecosystems at the national and international level.

During the thematic panels, the conference participants and representatives of start-ups, business, educational and research ecosystems will talk about the most important trends in the field of innovations and their application in the economy and society, with special emphasis on their impact on sustainable growth and social well-being. Panel topics are: Smart Cities, Industry 4.0, Technologies of the Future and Corporate Innovation.

In addition to panel discussions, and in cooperation with the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), there will be a Belgrade promotion of the Meet & Match regional project, i.e. business2business meetings between the representatives of the up-and-coming Serbian start-up companies and European and domestic corporations will take place, with the aim of networking and encouraging the cooperation between these two groups.

Panel discussions

Smart City

In 2009, for the first time ever, the number of people living in rural and urban areas was the same. Ten years later, this ratio is 55% to 45% in favour of the urban population. The United Nations estimates that, by 2050, as many as 70% of people will live in cities.

Sustainable urbanization is the key to sustainable development of our civilization while a new cycle of technological and social innovations for the smart cities of the future is necessary.

Technologies of the Future

What was unimaginable in the previous decade is now already a part of our everyday life – real-time communication, cloud storage, online commerce… Future technologies represent the greatest development potential of today’s business and public and private life.

Thanks to these technologies, industries and institutions will be able to advance and accelerate existing processes, making them economically and ecologically more efficient.

Industry 4.0

The industry is the driving force behind every economy. During the 20th century, the focus of industrial leaders was to maximize resource efficiency. The ones who succeded in this process are today the world’s largest conglomerates with huge production and capital concentration.

Digitization and development of new technologies such as AI, blockchain, Internet of Things and others have created the potential to achieve efficiency that goes beyond the known boundaries.

Corporate Innovation

One of the most promising trends in business evolution is the rise in the number of corporate innovation centres. Industrial titans have been the backbone of research and development centers for decades now, looking for „the next big thing“ for their companies. However, often burdened by the constraints they were used to operate in, corporations failed to recognize the  cutting edge innovation opportunities for growth and expansion. It’s in such situations that start-ups play the most important role which, with their focused specialization, can help solve problems and identify developmental opportunities.

Smart City

In 2009, for the first time ever, the number of people living in rural and urban areas was the same. Ten years later, this ratio is 55% to 45% in favour of the urban population. The United Nations estimates that, by 2050, as many as 70% of people will live in cities.
Sustainable urbanization is the key to sustainable development of our civilization while a new cycle of technological and social innovations for the smart cities of the future is necessary.
In the panel dedicated to SmartCity, the panelists will talk about how the use of new technologies ensures sustainable solutions to urban mobility, logistics, production, ecology, energy and water supply, etc.


Technologies of the Future

What was unimaginable in the previous decade is now already a part of our everyday life – real-time communication, cloud storage, online commerce… Future technologies represent the greatest development potential of today’s business and public and private life. Thanks to these technologies, industries and institutions will be able to advance and accelerate existing processes, making them economically and ecologically more efficient.

The development and use of artificial intelligence, Blockchain, Internet of Things and other technologies contributes to the creation of an efficient and sustainable society, while, at the same time, improving social well-being and economic efficiency. Also, such technology development opens up social dialogue on important topics such as protection of privacy and the elimination of traditional jobs.

What makes technologies of the future so important is that they are developing right now. Are we going to manage to make enough robots to replace people and how will technology shape our lives are some of the topics to be discussed during „Technologies of the Future“ panel.


Industry 4.0

The industry is the driving force behind every economy. During the 20th century, the focus of industrial leaders was to maximize resource efficiency. The ones who succeded in this process are today the world’s largest conglomerates with huge production and capital concentration.

Digitization and development of new technologies such as AI, blockchain, Internet of Things and others have created the potential to achieve efficiency that goes beyond the known boundaries. According to McKinsey & Co., 98% of the economy was affected by the changes brought on by digitization. Creativity in using the potential of these technologies has led is into the fourth industrial revolution which is changing the economic order today faster than it was ever possible.

The panelists participating in the Industry 4.0 panel will discuss the importance and potential of innovation in industrial processes, the best practice cases and future developments.


Corporate Innovation

One of the most promising trends in business evolution is the rise in the number of corporate innovation centres. Industrial titans have been the backbone of research and development centers for decades now, looking for „the next big thing“ for their companies. However, often burdened by the constraints they were used to operate in, corporations failed to recognize the  cutting edge innovation opportunities for growth and expansion. It’s in such situations that start-ups play the most important role which, with their focused specialization, can help solve problems and identify developmental opportunities.

Though corporate innovations and engaging start-ups were once reserved only for the courageous minority, today more than a half of Fortune 500’s companies are working with startups to stay competitive in their industries. These processes are not always easy but accepting such a risk can make the difference between the company’s future and the past.

Corporate innovation, the potential of partnership between corporations and start-ups and their economic significance will be the themes of the Corporate Innovation panel.
