Business Innovation Croatian Agency

who we are

The Business Innovation Croatian Agency - BICRO, established after a merger between the former Croatian Institute of Technology (HIT) and the Business Innovation Centre (BICRO), is the key governmental organisation in charge of catalysing the innovation process. BICRO both develops and coordinates national policy measures related to innovation on one hand, and the necessary financial instruments on the other, with the ultimate aim of motivating the private and public sector to raise the levels of investment in R&D.

what we offer

Business Innovation Croatian Agency is engaged in fostering and strengthening R&D - and technology-related activities of the public research sector with those of the entrepreneurial community. BICRO is also in charge of facilitating the absorption of EU Structural Funds by the R&D&I sector, particularly as concerns private companies. BICRO also has a role in developing and maintaining educational, advisory and networking activities among all the R&D actors, whereby special emphasis is placed on financing and monetization. Within the newly established Agency further efforts are invested in promoting supporting programmes to a wider community in order to increase the number of applications and, consequently, to increase the overall productivity of research and innovation activities in Croatia. Agency is now a central institution in the National Innovation System for supporting innovation and technology advancement.
