IN2 on 40th edition of the MIPRO conference

This year’s MIPRO conference, taking place from 22nd to 26th May in Opatija, was special – it is its 40th instance. IN2 did not miss the opportunity to participate in this renowned event.
Representatives from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, Adrian Barić and Stjepan Groš, Darko Huljenić from Ericsson Nikola Tesla, Goran Basarac from the Ministry of Economy, Entrepreneurship and Crafts, and Sanja Svilokos from IN2 participated in yesterday’s round table discussion at the conference, talked about R&D in small and medium sized companies.

Svilokos spoke on behalf of the company’s digital business sector, presenting IN2’s approach to business and technology development in terms of improving internal technology and innovation capabilities and ensuring continual increase in quality of products. These activities are carried out on several fronts – through R&D projects in cooperation with academic community, by employing company’s internal resources and by closely working with the startup community.

Participants of the round table discussion all agreed that cooperation between business and academic sector is crucial in improving the competitiveness of Croatian economy, and that information and experience in best practices should be shared as much as possible in order to boost the country’s R&D potential.

The "Croatian Invoincing B2A Exchange Project" was presented at the conference. The project is about implementation of electronic invoicing (eRačun) in the B2A segment. Davor Vinčić from IN2, Andreja Kajtaz from the Financial agency (FINA) and Maja Radišić-Žuvanić from the Ministry of Economy, Entrepreneurship and Crafts, presented their findings and experiences while working on the project.

Electronic invoicing is an excellent example of digital innovation ensuring efficiency and means for cost saving, which in turn reflects favorably on the public administration, citizens and companies. Although central state administration regularly uses electronic invoicing, it has yet to be implemented at other levels. This project therefore represents a basis for development of activities that will produce guidelines for electronic invoicing between public administration and the private sector.
