Serbia’s Tech Future
In the last two decades, following years of conflict, hundreds of thousands of young highly educated people have left Serbia looking for a brighter future elsewhere. But that trend has slowed with the mushrooming of digital technologies and innovation start-ups in Belgrade. Serbia’s innovative programmers specialise in quirky solutions, taking ‘less digital roads travelled’. Click’s special programme from Belgrade, co-produced with Snežana Ćurčić, starts by looking at the innovations that came out of the radical radio station, B92’s internet streaming during the war. The programme focuses on the Silicon Valley-esque Science Technology Park (STP). Located in the peaceful forest of Zvezdara, the Science Technology Park was built during Milošević’s times, and remained a white elephant until recently. Today STP is home to more than sixty innovative high-tech development companies. Click also hears about the continued centrality of the inventor, Nikola Tesla to Serbia’s culture. Gareth Mitchell is joined by Tamara Vučenović from Radio Belgrade to explore how tech is transforming the capital and the country.
