Our National Lead for Serbia
Meet Isabel, National Lead for Serbia!
What is your background?
I hold a Master degree in Environmental and Resource Management and I have been working in the past in international development projects in several countries. I am currently an Advisor for Climate Change and Circular Economy in the Centre of Environmental Protection and Circular Economy of the CCIS.
Why did you become a country lead / why does your organisation want to arrange ClimateLaunchpad in your country?
The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Serbia has started in 2016 to work closely with Climate-KIC. We have successfully implemented the Climate-KIC Climathon and a Stage 2-Accelerator program and we are very happy to give the Serbian start-ups the opportunity to participate in the Climate Launchpad this year.
Why do you think this competition is so important?
The Climate Launchpad gives young start-ups a boost forward and helps new entrepreneurs through their first steps towards their dream-business. We are currently trying to build-up the Serbian Cleantech community and this program is a fantastic opportunity to engage and encourage new people to participate.
How does your organisation support clean tech start-ups?
The Chamber of Commerce of Serbia has been supporting Serbian start-ups for many years. The participation in the Outreach-Program of Climate-KIC is giving us the chance to develop a new Cleantech-community, through the implementation of several programs, like the Accelerator, Pioneers into Practice, Climathon and several other ideation activities.
