The Science and Innovation Network is based in over 40 countries/territories around the world.
We engage with the local science and innovation community in support of UK policy overseas and also create strategic relationships to harness the value of science & innovation discoveries and investments overseas, leading to mutual UK and host-country benefits.
Science and innovation underpin the economies of both Croatia and the UK. Encouraging work between the two countries therefore produces benefits for both. Research and knowledge is increasingly developed and transferred through international collaboration which provides opportunities to work with the best in the world, exchange students and researchers, and gain access to large scale international facilities; leading to mutual benefits for the UK and Croatia.
To promote international collaboration, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) jointly fund the UK Science and Innovation Network (SIN), based in over 40 countries around the world. For further information, please visit the SIN report page, which gives a brief introduction to the broad variety of areas the SIN supports.
The Science & Innovation Section aims to promote Science and Innovation co-operation between the UK and Croatia and to facilitate technology transfer and innovation. For an introductory brief which covers the local Science and Innovation landscape, UK priorities and successes in Croatia, read the UK Science and Innovation Network Country Snapshot.
