SUCCESSFULLY IMPLEMENTED EU PROJECT
“Innovation Hub: Coparative advantage for greater competitiveness “
FOUNDATION FOR SMALL AND MEDIUM ENTREPRISES DEVELOPMENT Kumanovo
The Foundation for small and medium entreprises development Kumanovo implemented a remarkable project that has given a real place to innovation and which has included a large number of NAIM representatives.
In the past, many projects from various organizations, mainly EU-funded, have implemented projects that somehow misuse the term “Innovation” in which the meaning of innovation, invention and the importance of protecting industrial property are over-treated. This is one of the first successful projects in which this progressive and noble activity has been properly treated and where for the first time the inventors, who presented some of their inventions – prototypes, are directly involved. Here we can mention the innovators Vlatko Popovski, Marjan Nenov, Daniela Rizova, who presented their prototypes to a number of small and medium enterprises. There were several presentations by the President of NAIM, Mr. Mirko Uzelac, who also directly answered the questions of the representatives of companies, who participated in an impressive number. Lectures by prof. Dr. Orce Simov from UMF Training, Assoc. Dr. Samoil Malcheski, MA Zoran Velkovski and other lecturers were extremely well thought out. The project is managed by Mr. Dimitar Tashevski with his team and close associates. A number of memorandums and agreements of cooperation have been made between the participating companies, making this project even more valuable.
The place of the closing press conference of this project was carefully selected, not by chance, in the Kumanovo Craftsmen’s Chamber. Let us not forget that Kumanovo was one of the most industrially developed towns in the former R.N. Macedonia, thanks to the Kumanovo craftsmanship. With such an organization as the ” Foundation for Small and Medium Enterprises Development Kumanovo ” run by young and capable people, Kumanovo and the region will slowly but surely return to the place of industrial primacy in the Republic of North Macedonia, for the benefit of all its citizens.
NAIM sends sincere congratulations and will continue the support and cooperation with the Foundation for Development of Small and Medium Enterprises Kumanovo.
