Contribution edited by Istrian Development Agency (IDA) Ltd.

Thanks to SMART INNO project, Istrian Development Agency (IDA) Ltd. in collaboration with Association for technical culture of Pula established the Center for the Advancement of Science and Innovation in the Region of Istria.

The Center consists of a few units on physics, mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetism, atomic physics fundamentals, "play and have fun", knowledge and experience. It is located in the neighbourhood of the Universitarian Library of Pula, the Archaeological Museum of Istria, the Historical and Maritime Museum of Istria, and the Technical School in Pula, which enables a better cooperation of all these institutions with the Center. Its aim is to demystify the "difficulty" in approaching Science and Innovation, emphasizing their beauty and making them available to the wide public. 

Other objectives are: promoting interest in Science and Innovation and to connect with other centers for developing and promotion of innovation and science,  developing teamwork and adoption of new technologies in Innovation and Professional services, Research and Creative Abilities of young people, access to the local community and SME’s. The Centre encourages a positive attitude towards Science, helps people to better understand the scientific progress and the impact science has on their lives, becoming a project that enables learning about natural laws in a simple and interesting way by conducting experiments with teaching resources.

Information will follow on this very interesting initiative! Stay tuned on SMART INNO website!
