A year after signing an agreement on cooperation with the European Space Agency, a six member delegation has arrived in Croatia for a visit. In 2017 the space sector created more than 230 000 jobs in Europe.
At the opening conference Minister of Science and Education Blaženka Divjak and Minister of the Economy and Entrepreneurship Darko Horvat, noted that the focus will be on opportunities for economic cooperation and creating conditions for financing Croatian scientific organizations and companies.
“We would like to use this phase to advance our system of innovations in Croatia but also for cooperation of industry with the research sector and schools. We would like to quicken the procedure of joining the European Space Agency. This is important to us, not only because of data that we can get, but also for the development of various industrial branches that need data for navigation and other important fields,” said Divjak.
“Together we use every possible opportunity to open perspectives for entrepreneurs and give them the possibility to be part of such associations and in the end to gain certain benefits for themselves. All of this contributes to increasing the Croatian GDP,” said Minister Horvat.
