About the Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution in Serbia

[vc_column_text font_size=”15px” color=”#0F1E43″ font_weight=”500″ text_align=”center” line_height=”20px”]

The fourth industrial revolution is a global transformation of economic and social relations under the influence of new technologies, which covers the physical, digital, and biological world. It opens up possibilities for significant improvement of the quality of life, accelerated economic development and addressing the majority of key global challenges. However, its exponential speed also imposes significant challenges for existing institutions, which are expected to protect the society against risks and disbalances.

In 2017 the World Economic Forum established the first Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (C4IR) in San Francisco, with the objective to support smart application of new technologies worldwide. So far, the global network of similar centres has been joined by 16 countries, including the Republic of Serbia.

The Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution in Serbia (C4IR Serbia) was established in February 2022 in Geneva by the Government of the Republic of Serbia and the World Economic Forum. This is the first such centre in the region and the third in Europe (after Oslo and Moscow).

C4IR Serbia started operating in March 2022, under the auspices of the Office for IT and e-Government of the Government of the Republic of Serbia, aimed at two priorities: biotechnology and application of artificial intelligence in health care. The Centre was launched with the idea to facilitate faster utilisation of scientific knowledge in the economy and to position Serbia globally as an intelligent service exporter and innovation.

The Centre shall bring together scientists and researchers, representatives of the government, industry and the civil society in order to ensure the preconditions for development, testing and enhancement of new technologies for the benefit of the society. In addition to bringing together the said actors and promoting dialogue among them, the Centre will propose regulations to facilitate the application of new technologies, along with the protection of rights and interests of the public, and work to develop infrastructure requirements, and it will in other ways support the biotechnology and bioinformatic environment in Serbia.

Part of the World Economic Forum's global C4IR Network

[vc_column_text font_size=”15px” color=”#0F1E43″ font_weight=”500″ text_align=”center” line_height=”20px”]

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is the international organization for public-private cooperation. The Forum engages the foremost political, business and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.

In 2017, the WEF launched the Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (C4IR) in San Francisco for leaders in government, business and civil society to better understand and effectively influence the development of technological change for good. Since then, 16 centers around the world have been established creating a global C4IR network.

The World Economic Forum’s global C4IR network is a platform for multi-stakeholder collaboration, bringing together the public and private sectors to maximize technological benefits to society while minimizing the risks associated with 4IR technologies. Centres are (co)hosted and (co)funded by national public and/or private entities, while the first-established centre in San Francisco is a Forum entity and serves as a catalyst, curator and coordinator to the overall network.

The Forum provides operational support to the Network, and leverages its communities, initiatives, convening power, digital infrastructure, brand recognition and trusted status as an international organization to advance the Network’s mission and programs.
