ICT meets Metal Industry and Renewable Energy

During the Global Entrepreneurship Week 2018, STIKK and MIRECK organised a B2B event between members of both organisations, in order to create a platform for partnership for IT, Metal Processing and Renewable Energy.

The main topics discussed were digitalisation, innovation of services, and cooperation between IT, Metal processing and Renewable energy companies.

This event was started by the Project Manager of STIKK, Mr. Egzon Gashi, who welcomed everyone with an informational presentation about services that STIKK and its member companies provide. Also, he mentioned that there is a huge opportunity on how these sectors can fulfil each-other’s needs. Mr. Astrit Rexhaj, Executive Director of the Metal Industry and Renewable Energy Cluster of Kosovo (MIRECK) offered an overview of the need for more cooperation possibilities such as this one, in order for the Kosovo economy to be ready for the global need of digitalisation.

The event continued with each participant introducing themselves, their companies and their needs or skills they can offer. After the introduction, the participants continued discussing with each-other over breakfast about potential future collaborations.

This activity is made possible with the support of the German Cooperation office, implemented by GIZ, through the Creating Employment through Export Promotion (CETEP) project.
