From a city of electronics to a city of advanced technologies
For decades, the board saying “Welcome to the city of electronics” would greet everyone coming to Niš, precisely because of the Electronics Industry (EI), the pride of the former economy.
During the period from 1948 to 1990, Niš was the regional industrial center of the electronics industry and the machine industry in the Balkans.
At that time, EI was following the latest production trends and was cooperating with leading European and world companies (Phillips, Siemens, Honeywell).
For the needs of EI’s development, a strong scientific research base was created, which exists even today and is a strong center in the fields of electronics, mechatronics, information technologies, and the like.
Mechanical Industry Niš (MIN) was one of the economy giants in Yugoslavia. Their production included producing mechanical constructions, all the way to reconstructing train cars and locomotives.
Proud of the city’s history that we keep from being forgotten, when the Science and Technology Park began operations, we began writing pages of new history, which will be testified for by all innovative and globally competitive products and solutions being created right here, which will place Niš high on the world map for innovations over time.
