Economic diplomacy can help put unique ideas and investment intentions into practice. This is one of the goals of the European Centre of Economic Diplomacy (CIDIC) residing in Brussels.

During a two-day visit to Bratislava in mid-October 2016, the representatives of the centre decided to award three Slovak companies that focus on innovations: AeroMobil, Neulogy and Rokosan, the TASR newswire reported.

“These companies made efforts to become innovative, to find other solutions to existing problems,” said Frederic de Pryck, chair of the CIDIC executive committee, as quoted by TASR. “They made something better than other firms; they are innovative and search for new possibilities to modernise the product in order to achieve better results.”

CIDIC picked the three companies based on the proposals submitted by the Slovak Economy Ministry, the Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO), the Slovak Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SOPK), and Club 500.

“I think that to award the innovative companies in Slovakia is important as this is the kind of business we want to support,” said Dušan Jurík from the Economy Ministry, as quoted by TASR.

AeroMobil received the award for its flying car, while Neulogy was rewarded for its complex solutions and services for research and development institutions, as well as the commercialisation of research and development of small technological companies.

The last awarded firm, Rokosan, focuses on production of organic, organo-mineral and amino-acid fertilisers, TASR reported.
