The company in question based in Osijek has opened a development and research center, and the current number of thirty employees is set to increase.
As Suzana Lepan-Stefancic/VL/Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 23rd of September, 2018, Ericsson Nikola Tesla’s Development and Research Center opened last friday Friday in Osijek, holding its position as one of the most prominent, successful projects of this technological giant.
Gordana Kovačević, the company’s president, said that instead of continuing to send talented young people from Slavonia out of the country and into the world, the company is making sure the world enters Slavonia, and Slavionian ICT experts are going to be the ones to take care of it. The company’s address is located in Osijek’s Kappa centre, and the company offices currently stretch to 1,100 square metres, and depending on the employment dynamics, it could continue to stretch to up to 2,500 square metres.
The office is, for starters, occupied by thirty young professionals, and the number of employees will be significantly higher.
“We’re investing more than 400 million kuna annually into our people’s education, and owing to that, our colleagues from Osijek will be equally involved with the development of fifth generation technology projects along with their colleagues from Zagreb and Split. The dynamics of employment will depend on the availability of ICT experts on the market,” Gordana continued.
“Osijek has now turned its back on its economic past, and these days, new foundations for Osijek’s development are being created, among the thirty people employed, most of them have lived in Zagreb. And, if they return to Osijek, then that’s a big turnaround,” the Mayor of Osijek, Ivica Vrkić added, offering his thanks to the Croatian Government for “creating the political framework for the arrival of this world company”.
“You have sent a message to the university, the faculty, the city, and the general climate here in Osijek that this part of Croatia has a future, and development, and research,” Prime Minister Andrej Plenković stated.
