The main objective of the support activities launched by the IDA with its business infrastructure network in the Istria County is to strengthen the entrepreneurial environment and stimulate self-employment and the growth and development of young innovative entrepreneurs, especially those investing in the development of new technologies.

In addition to existing entrepreneurial incubators and coworking facilities in Labin, Pula, Poreč, Rovinj and Vodnjan, there are currently investments underway to open similar facilities in the cities of Buzet and Pazin, and the municipality of Barban, primarily thanks to ESI funds, which have sparked the networking initiative.

The establishment of the Entrepreneurship Center "Coworking Pula" is being prepared as part of the project of integrated territorial investment activities for the Pula urban area.
