The Green Innovation Vouchers Scheme in Serbia aims at boosting the innovation capacity of SMEs in the field of resource efficiency, thus supporting the country’s long-term economic competitiveness and climate resilience. Specifically, the IVS will build new relationships between SMEs and local R&D service providers, which will stimulate direct knowledge transfer and catalyse the transformation of innovative project ideas into a market for resource-efficient products and services. The scheme is supported by Austria’s DRIVE (Delivering Resource Efficiency InVEstments) Programme Account.
The launch event will take place on 5 December 2017, in Belgrade. It will present interested parties with the benefits and opportunities of the scheme, as well as with the requirements to participate in the Scheme.
