As part of the activities of the Balkan Institute of Science and Innovation of Université Côte d'Azur, a delegation visited the University of Montenegro in July 2022.

The main objective of the visit was to consider joint actions between our universities aimed at developing academic and innovation ecosystems in Montenegro and more broadly in the Balkans, and more specifically to create a Regional Cyber Security Center. The visit was also the opportunity to inaugurate a FABLAB for the IoT at the University of Montenegro, one of the first such experiments in the Balkans. The delegation also took the time to visit the premises of the BISI Institute in the main building of the University of Montenegro.
