Mapping of economic, innovative and scientific potential in Serbia was finalised in November 2017 by Fraunhofer ISI. The analysis sought to identify potential S3 priority domains in Serbia, based on the regional perspective. The data has been collected with the support from the country's S3 analytical team led by the Institute Mihajlo Pupin. The analysis revealed several potential priority areas for the EDP phase, based on the division to following regions:
1) Belgrade: computer programming and ICT, R&D and technical consultancy, creative economy, and monetary intermediation;
2) Vojvodina: automotive industry, agricultural economy (including processing industries), petrochemical industry, plastics industry;
3) Šumadija and Western Serbia: agri-/horti-/silvicultural economy (including processing industries), automotive industry, textile industry, plastics industry, metal industry;
4) Southern and Eastern Serbia: agri-/horticultural economy (including processing industries), textile industry, rubber industry, electrical engineering.
Additional qualitative analysis has been carried out by the country's analytical team in order to validate the results of the mapping report.
