Ericsson Nikola Tesla and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing of the University of Zagreb have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on developing new cooperation models in teaching and research. The goal is a closer connection of science and economy as a predisposition for local and national economic development.

To strengthen cooperation, the two organizations established Inventorium, a scientific and research laboratory located on ENT premises. The name itself is coined from the English word “invent” and the Latin word “laboratorium”, and represents a technological laboratory where innovative ideas for the future are created. It will be used for research activities and will enable researchers to work on the development of the latest ICT technologies. The plan is to start developing additional analytical methods by using AI to predict network behaviors and automate characteristics for optimum communication user experience. This will enable the creation and implementation of new ideas and obtaining new research results.

“I am extremely happy about the long-term successful cooperation with the FER. I believe that the scientific and research laboratory Inventorium will further strengthen our cooperation and open up new possibilities for working on joint projects, thus enabling the creation and realization of new ideas and the creation of new research results. The space, equipment, knowledge, and support of our employees are made available for various forms of activities that we will continue to jointly consider and define in a partnership relationship to further strengthen our teams for additional strides in the research area of the development of new technologies,” emphasized Gordana Kovačević, President of Ericsson Nikola Tesla.

“Croatia can develop technologically only if there is an environment and interaction of entrepreneurs, companies, and academic institutions with high ambitions and excellent results. FER is also recognized for its cooperation with the economy, and strengthening and expanding this cooperation is one of our strategic goals. The decades-long partnership between FER and ENT can serve as an example of good practice as it includes numerous models of cooperation in research, education, and innovation, continuously supplemented and developed, and which significantly contributes to the creation of talents and the development of their careers,” said Vedran Bilas, dean of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing of the University of Zagreb.
