On the platform

Istria IT Land represents the platform which intends to contribute to the development of IT industry in Istria and make it recognizable IT centre in Croatia and the region. Later during the year, an informal initiative will be formalized by incorporation of an Association of the same name, in order to realize the set goals easier and facilitate operative actions.

There are IT companies in Istria like Infobip and CMG, which have offices all around the world and employ hundreds of people. There is also a number of successful small IT companies which have been performing business operations for many years, as well as more and more freelancers. With the growth of the University of Pula, the School of Informatics has been established. The first generation of students-computer technicians is just graduating.

The main idea is to create a community of programmers and designers in one place and turn Istria into a recognizable international IT centre.

Other than IT, activities of the platform would encompass digital marketing, graphic design and multimedia.

Main goals are the increase of attractivity of developers profession in Istria; creation of local IT community and transforming Istria into a national and regional IT hub; joint market appearance on the international market; encourage entrepreneurship in the IT sector; as well as to connect all stakeholders in that area (companies, supportive and educational institutions, local and regional self-government units…).
