WHO ARE WE

iDEAlab represents a unique creative work space intended for students and young researchers of all faculties of the University of Novi Sad. iDEAlab, as a non-profit association of citizens, offers interested students and members free training programs to encourage the entrepreneurial spirit, support in the realization of their innovative ideas, the possibility of networking and mentoring by experienced entrepreneurs.

The vision of iDEAlab is to see students and young researchers as potential founders of fast-growing companies, which would contribute to spreading the entrepreneurial spirit at the University and exploiting the great but underutilized potential that comes from their most valuable resource, which is knowledge.

The mission of iDEAlab is to systematically encourage and direct the creativity, innovation and proactivity of students and researchers, to affirm their talent and strengthen their entrepreneurial skills and abilities, creating more meaningful connections between the University and the environment and encouraging the overall entrepreneurial climate.

iDEAlab was created as part of the international Tempus project "Fostering students' entrepreneurship and open innovation in university-industry collaboration (iDEALab)" which is coordinated by the University of Novi Sad. As part of the project, a regional network of six laboratories was formed at 6 institutions in the region (University of Novi Sad, Higher Technical School of Vocational Studies in Zrenjanin, Higher Technical School of Vocational Studies in Subotica, University of Donja Gorica in Podgorica, University of Banja Luka and University in Zenica)
