Due to the city's dense population of 2.923 inhabitants per km2, which is twice as much as the country`s capital, addressing the direct needs of citizens comes as challenging task. Therefore, the City of Rijeka is constantly seeking opportunities for introducing innovations, creating new workplaces and improving the living standard of its citizens.
Our strengths are the geographical location by the Adriatic Sea, favourable traffic routes, multiethnicity and multiculturality, and the developed social welfare and health system, as well as education.
Our people are the most valuable resource who can generate a new potential for social innovation, employment and integration. The development of entrepreneurial infrastructure and induction of new technologies will build entrepreneurial knowledge and promote economic competitiveness.
The City of Rijeka has been dedicated to sustainable development and becoming a Smart city and has been working closely with the local community, businesses and educational institutions for several years. Our partners from the URBACT network will help us use all our potential mechanisms to engage the private sector into a socially and environmentally responsible behaviour, and to interweave corporate social responsibility in our future growth as a community.
