Established in 2008 a new consultancy firm in Serbia (Novi Sad, Vojvodina) aiming with main focus on development of creativity and innovation for SME's based on HR trainings and workshops: TARA International Consulting (TARA stands for Training Advocacy Research and Advance). Having the experience of development programs in SEE for almost 10 years and more recently on supporting TT and cluster development, it became more obvious that nothing will move properly without innovation and creativity. Therefore TARA linked up with the Region of Flanders (Hugo is Flemish) and the Flanders DC (District of Creativity).

For TARA it is most important to find valuable experience and partners which can be shared in our projects.
