Fostering innovation based research for e-Montenegro

University of Montenegro (UoM) is an actor of excellence for education and research in the field of ICT in Montenegro. More precisely, this position is attained and maintained through activities organized and performed at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FEE), being one of the UoM founding units .

Fore-Mont aims at strengthening the UoM(FEE)'s excellence by improving its research infrastructure, human resources fostering and long-term partnerships. The project will create a strong synergy in research from the three current UoM(FEE) research groups working in the field of ICT. Indeed, through Fore-Mont, these groups will merge to provide a research centre dedicated to the innovative research in info-communication infrastructures and e-services engineering: Research Centre for Info-Communication Technologies.

The Fore-Mont project will rely on 5 partners from 5 different countries all over EU, and will be supported by 8 entities, from state authorities to SMEs, industries or regional organisations.

Measurable objectives are the acquisition of important pieces of equipment; the implementation of a new centre dedicated to joint research; the hiring of three experienced researchers (one dedicated to the Intellectual Property development plan); intense mobility trainings (15 outgoing,15 incoming experienced researchers);3 international conferences;1 regional conference; 3 workshops; participation to 3 scientific and industrial events to promote the project steps and results.

Through these measures the new centre will be recognized as the leading research entity in the country for the ICT, when it comes to the advanced solutions for info-communication infrastructures, smart applications and e-services, as well as internationally recognized reliable partner. This project will support UoM(FEE) to integrate into ERA, becoming the major actor in ICT innovative research at national/regional level and a competent partner for Horizon2020 projects. Finally, the UoM(FEE) will create opportunities to be granted patents and to provide applied solutions.
