Innovation Reshaping Montenegro Forum 2016

Every year MAUK organizes a number of events aiming at promoting values of knowledge, innovation, professional growth and education for personal and country’s development.

In November 2016, in cooperation with the British Embassy in Podgorica and the Chevening Foundation, we organised the first Chevening Forum Innovation Reshaping Montenegro from 15 to 16 November.

 This Forum gathered UK alumni experience and knowledge with the threefold purpose: (i) to present innovative recent projects/ideas/research which will contribute to reshaping Montenegro in the fields of public policies, science, entrepreneurship, and culture; (ii) to inspire people of all age and social groups of Montenegrin society to creation and innovation (particularly young adults); and (iii) to influence decision-makers to support and foster creative and innovative ideas and projects.
