Niš City Council Member Prof Vladislav Marjanovic, PhD, said that in adapting to the conditions of globalization, innovation became the main resource of development. “In order to be able to innovate, you have to create knowledge, and to create knowledge one of the ways is to support responsible projects that connect science and practice,” said Marjanovic at the opening of the co-working zone at the Faculty of Electronics in Niš whose equipment was financially supported by the company NIS. The opening ceremony was attended by the RS Minister of Education, Science and Technological Development, Mladen Šarčević, and the General Manager of NIS, Kyrill Tyurdenev. NIS has invested around 100 million dinars in Niš, in recent years, said Marjanović and added that NIS, as a socially responsible company will support other projects as well. At the end of 2019, NIS and the Faculty of Electronics in Niš signed an agreement on business and technical cooperation, according to which the company NIS donated funds for the purchase of computer equipment for the implementation of joint projects in the field of digitalization and new technologies in the amount of 3.5 million dinars.
