Creative Industries, Design and Competitiveness

February 27th, 2008

Due to the objective impossibility of the author of the study, H.Mikić, to attend a panel discussion in the foreseen term, we are forced to cancel the planned event: a panel discussion on creative industries, design, and competitiveness, at O3ONE, February 27th, at 12.30. The new grandstand will be postponed later.

The Office of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Serbia supported in 2007 – within the project “Promoter Serbia” – a series of activities focused on the potentials and development of creative industries in Serbia, including “brainstorming” workshops on creative industries, private museums, as well as the development of a study titled “Creative Industries – Design and Competitiveness”.

The final activity in this project is a panel discussion devoted to creative industries, design, and competitiveness, which will be held on Wednesday, February 27th, 2008, at 12:30h, at O3ONE, Andrićev Venac no.12, Belgrade.
