In addition to providing high-level political support and institutional sponsorship, the government introduced a new institutional framework to manage this process and initiate internal changes. In 2017, the Office for IT and e Government (ITE) was created to consolidate government’s ICT resources, develop shared infrastructures and support the transition from an institution-centric to a citizen-centric model of designing and providing e services. ITE was initially formed as a cabinet-level body, and in 2022 with the creation of the new Government, its status changed into a special organization. ITE also performs the tasks of coordinating the support to the international cooperation on the global market for digital, innovative and creative industries, as well as monitoring and promoting the connection of the public and private sectors in the areas of the digital innovative creative economy, aiming at sustainable and integrated economic growth of the Republic of Serbia.
UNDP has supported this broad digitalization agenda of the Government of Serbia since its inception, through the project “Serbia at Your Fingertips – Digital Transformation for Development”. This project consists of six segments. The first three relate to the development of e-government systems, the fourth includes support for the implementation of activities from the agenda related to creative industries, while the fifth includes support for the implementation of large infrastructure projects in the e-government. The new sixth component is related to the establishment of the Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution in Serbia, as well as the development of 4IR technology governance frameworks.
Under the fourth component, the Office for IT and eGovernment (ITE) in cooperation with the Prime Minister’s Office, plans to establish the Creative-Innovative Multifunctional Centre “Ložionica”. The Centre is conceived as a multi-functional center for creative, IT and innovative content focused on creative industries and the knowledge-based economy. Its primary goal is to connect and provide recognition to talented and innovative individuals, focusing on sustainable development. The “Ložionica” complex will be developed on the construction plot GP25b (22.626m2) within spatial plan of Belgrade Waterfront (PPPN Beograd na vodi) and consists of five phases: phase A (underground garage 7.288m2), phase B (Creativity Hub “Ložionica” 4.814m2), phase C (new office Annex building 11.174m2), phase D (old Water Tower), phase E (pedestrian bridge).
