Innovative quality and innovative practice have to have a defined infrastructure and clear and simple procedures

Nowadays, when we're building a society based on knowledge, to talk about development without ICT technology is unthinkable. Innovations in that field influence greatly the dynamics and quality of development in all segments of society, especially economy.

The Ruđer Bošković Institute, a multidisciplinary centre of basic research in the fields of natural sciences, life sciences, and applied research, has recognized the VIDI e-novation award ceremony as a happening that could give a major contribution to the recognition and evaluation of innovative ideas and to their transfer into economy and into other segments of society.

This year we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the creation of Croatia's first digital computer, which was made at the Ruđer Bošković Institute, which proves the RBI's long tradition in ICT technology. People in the Institute are proud of the fact that it is a partner and a cofounder of this important award for more than one reason. Firstly, we constantly improve our knowledge by gaining new notions which, on one hand, can be a basis for innovations in the field of ICT, while on the other hand the ICT innovations can largely improve the quality and efficiency of scientific research. Secondly, a few years ago the Institute started the creation of a number of infrastructural components for the purpose of carrying out the programme called 'Croatia – country of knowledge'. Following this path, we are building and developing the latest ICT technologies in the field of network computering, in cooperation with our partners from EU, to serve the needs of eScience technologies. simple procedures. Our main goal is to promote the culture of innovation and of commercialization of knowledge.
