Cluster development is a long process, but it provides long-lasting results.

I graduated as BSc in Economics from the Faculty of Management in Nis, Serbia.Since then I gained experience in the area of market research, including training and coordination of surveys, in-depth interviews, questionnaire development and analysis. As a member of CEED Consulting team, I participated in various projects in Montenegro, encompassing apart from market research - business plan development, marketing and the identification of local business opportunities.

After having participated in several UNIDO training courses on cluster development, I carried out field research to support national cluster mapping activities and later started to work as a Cluster Development Agent supporting three clusters in organic crop production and freshwater fish farming in Montenegro.
