The Excellence in Innovation project identifies “high impact” information and communications technologies (ICTs) that can quickly and significantly strengthen the competitiveness of target industries. The project co-invests with local entrepreneurs to create self-sustainable “e-BIZ Enterprises,” which offer the high impact ICT services at affordable prices to all businesses in a target industry. The goal: more competitive and profitable small and medium enterprises, more and better jobs, high levels of local co-investment and foreign direct investment. The EI project is creating four e-BIZ Enterprises in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH): a Tourism Portal, a Wood Products Technology Center, a Machine Tools Technology Center, and an Agriculture Service Center.
