This year's exhibition was performed in the classic way in the Cultural Center Dubrava and online on the website www.inova-croatia.com. The reasons for the two exhibitions are the limitation of live participation opportunities due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but also the large international promotional effect of last year’s online edition of the exhibition. More than 430 innovations from the Republic of Croatia and over 20 countries from around the world were exhibited. This year's exhibition was the first live exhibition of international innovation in the world since the end of 2019. The organizers marked the 50th anniversary of this 2nd oldest exhibition of innovations in the world and the 65th anniversary of the successful operation of the Zagreb Inventors Association with a successful INOVA.

For decades, innovators both from Zagreb, and Croatia, have been winning many awards and acknowledgements for their inventions all around the world, and therefore have strengthened the meaning of their city on the world map where innovations and creativity, new techniques and technologies are of great importance.
Zagreb is a city of a rich history, culture, tradition and science and it has been, countless times, a host of many prestigious European and world manifestations from different fields of technical creations. Therefore, it is no suprise thet numerous world innovators are more tha happy to come and display their works in our city alongside to their Croatian colleagues.
Firstly, I would like to congratulate all organizers on a successful organization of this important international event. Secondly, I would like to wish the best of luck to all participants and thirdly, to all guests, I wish a happy and pleasant stay in our city. I believe that Zagreb will be a host to these kinds of manifestations that all citizens can benefit from, in the future again.
Lastly, allow me to proudly announce the 45th Croatian exhibition of innovations with international participation INOVA 2021 and 17th display of innovations, prototypes and student business plans BE A ROLE MODEL 2021, open. Thank you.
