News / Ambassador Sattler Discusses Digitalisation with Students of Mostar Universities
“Decoding the Future: New Generation and Digital World” was the topic of discussion for students from the Faculty of Economics of the University of Mostar and the Faculty of Information Technologies of “Džemal Bijedić” University Mostar with Ambassador Johann Sattler, Head of the Delegation of the European Union and EU Special Representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina. “Today’s students are ‘digital natives’, in the sense they grew up in the digital era. They can lead Bosnia and Herzegovina’s digital transformation, which will open up new opportunities for entrepreneurs and innovators and more efficient e-governance in the public sector. I was very glad to have such an engaging discussion with ‘generation change’ – the future leaders who have the power to create a better future for Bosnia and Herzegovina,” said Ambassador Sattler.
The other members of the panel were Dr Ulrike Hartmann, Ambassador of Austria to BiH, Anđela Čović, Chief Marketing Officer of ZenDev AB, Salko Kovačić, Head of IT Centre of University Džemal Bijedić Mostar and Darko Marić, HR specialist of NSoft.
The event concluded by inviting students to team up and apply for the next phase of the #GenChange project and get the opportunity to be part of a winning team that will travel to Brussels this summer.
Throughout March and April, Ambassador Sattler and EU member state ambassadors will visit public universities throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina, and talk with students about topics that are important to young people and for the country’s progress towards the European Union. During six events that will take place in Zenica, Sarajevo, Tuzla, Mostar, Banja Luka and Bihac, the ambassador will meet with more than 800 students and have the opportunity to hear the thoughts of the new generation in BiH, as well as answer student questions.
