e-novation: How did it all begin?

The contest met with an enormous response exceeding all expectations, showing that the Croatian society abounds in high-quality innovations and the new ICT area products


In the beginning of the year 2006, Rudjer Bošković Institute founded a company named Rudjer Innovations Ltd., aiming at commercialising and incorporating into Croatia’s economy or launching into the world the basic research results, which are the newly created intellectual property. At the same time, a prominent publishing company Vidi generated the idea to merge the previous rewarding of the best web sites with the best innovation award. Rudjer Boskovic Institute, with more than 360 doctors of science and the great potential for creating innovations, has recognized Vidi publishing company as the reputable partner and the promoter of new ideas, so they soon agreed on organising and implementing the new joint award. One of the goals for starting this contest was to find and reward the innovators of certain products or production-processes in the area of the Information and Communications Technology (ICT), as well as to promote and improve certain innovations, in accordance with the agreement and the author’s (owner’s) demands. The promotion will be realised by Vidi, while some of the innovations might be improved in cooperation with Rudjer Boskovic Institute, that is, Rudjer Innovations Ltd.

The contest met with an enormous response exceeding all expectations, showing that the Croatian society abounds in high-quality innovations and the new ICT area products. I believe that taking part in this contest will help all the participants to promote and to commercialise more successfully, as well as to launch products on domestic and world market. In the future, the Vidi e-novation contest will be completed with a new form embracing, apart from the ICT, all other segments of science and technology. As a member of Rudjer Innovations Ltd, I am proud to have taken part in creating and implementing the Vidi e-novation award. I congratulate all the participants, especially the award recipients.
