The Institute for Youth Development KULT and the Faculty of Economy in Sarajevo signed a cooperation agreement formalising their partnership in organising the Sarajevo Innovation Summit 2019, which will be held on October 10, in the City Hall in Sarajevo.
The Faculty of Economy in Sarajevo is once again organising the Innovation Summit, a unique event in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This is one of the proactive ways in which this Faculty interacts with today’s trends. This year, we owe a special thanks to the Institute, because they went beyond financial support and provided all the assistance we needed to organise this year’s Summit, said the Dean of the Faculty of Economy in Sarajevo, Prof. Dr. Jasmina Selimović.
The Sarajevo Innovation Summit will host eminent innovators from the Kingdom of Sweden, as well as local innovators and panelists. The Institute provided financial and advisory support in organising the Summit, and one of the Institute’s employees, Nejra Neimarlija Roić will be one of the panelists.
This type of support and cooperation with the academic community is one of the ways the Institute tried to provide young people with access to modern ways to learn and opportunities to exchange information with experts from across the globe. For years, the Institute has been cooperating with the government, academic community and the business sector, in an attempt to create a better environment for youth in all parts of BiH. This cooperation with the Faculty of Economy is not an act of randomness – every year they offer an increasing number of entrepreneurial and innovation projects relevant to youth, said the Executive Director of the Institute, Jasmin Bešić.
