Scientific Cooperation

Cooperation Focused On Applied Technology And Innovation

Italy and Serbia are keen to support collaboration between research and industry, in an effort to convert research into innovation and exploit the results of research for economic advancement

Italy and Serbia are continuously advancing their scientific and cultural cooperation. Over recent years, a particular emphasis has been placed on increasing cooperation in the field of applied technology and innovation, biomedicine and biotechnology, agriculture, food technology, energy and environmental protection, nanotechnology, information and communication technologies, and technologies in the field of cultural heritage protection. Prior to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, a total of 96 inter-university cooperation agreements between the two countries had already been signed.

One of the pillars of this fruitful collaboration was the establishment of the Association of Italian and Serbian Scientists and Scholars – AIS3, which become a point of reference for the two countries’ research communities. This association has organised numerous events and book publications.

Another cornerstone of cooperation is the Italian-Serbian Collaboration Platform. Founded in 2013 as a joint initiative of the Academy of Engineering Sciences of Serbia and the Italian Association of Automation and Mechatronics, ISCP Conferences aim to strengthen and facilitate the Italian-Serbian partnership through intensive industry-research collaboration in technology innovation and robotics. The partners have engaged in several research and innovation projects in the domain of the manufacturing industry, with the financial contribution of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

Among the major goals of scientific cooperation is the promotion of technology and innovation through exchanges of knowledge between scientists and scholars, in both Italy and Serbia

Previous ISCP conferences brought together the likes of the Italian Association of Mechatronics and Automation, the Association of Italian and Serbian Scientists, Confindustria Serbia, the Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Serbia, the Italian Trade Agency (ITA-ICE) in Belgrade, the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies (Pisa) and the University of Belgrade. They were also sponsored by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Government of the Republic of Serbia and the Italian Embassy in Belgrade.

Among the major goals of scientific cooperation is the promotion of technology and innovation through exchanges of knowledge between scientists and scholars, in both Italy and Serbia, to support joint research and development projects between scientists, scholars and non-profit, for-profit and governmental organisations in the two countries, in order to promote the bilateral flow of scientists and scholars between Italy and Serbia, and assist prospective students in finding fellowships for the exchange of scientists and scholars. The two countries also agreed to work jointly to identify significant research opportunities – with specific regard to European Union Scientific Projects for Italian and Serbian scientific institutions, academia and the hightech industry – and to stimulate their development.
