Summary of the project

Serbian ICT companies specialized in design and manufacturing of electronic devices are facing a number of challenges in accessing foreign markets. The problem identified as the crucial one is the lack of proper EMC testing and certification infrastructure in Serbia. Also, the overall level of know-how related to product design for EMC compliance is very low among Serbian companies. Lack of both, practical knowledge and competent local testing facilities is causing companies to struggle in order to reach foreign markets. The main objective of the project is to improve Serbian ICT industry competitiveness by enabling cost-effective and sustainable EMC product testing service in the country, to raise awareness on EMC regulation and industry training on design for EMC and to establish EMC education program at the University capable of serving rising industry need of educated EMC professionals.

Programme/Project objectives

To establish a capacity for EMC conformance product testing in Serbia. Realization of this goal will improve ICT industry in Serbia, reduce unemployment and improve the competitiveness of other industry sectors. The final result of the project will be establishment and accreditation of EMC Test Facility, which will significantly reduce Serbian industry’s EMC testing expenditures, facilitate the export due to harmonization with EU standards and reduce the need of doing EMC testing in other countries.

Specific objectives

  • To increase the employment of highly educated young professionals;
  • To improve competitiveness of industry sectors by delivering high-quality solutions;
  • To capacitate EMC conformance product testing within the ICT Net industry cluster
