Gordana Danilović Grković, Acting Director of Science Technology Park Belgrade

Problems are Challenges for Youngsters

I worked in science for a long time and am fascinated by the scientific research sector, the abundance of knowledge that exists there, conceived technologies, methods, prototypes etc. That is really our wealth. That’s what the world calls ‘potential for innovation’, and in all analyses our best rating is precisely in that part. Where we lag behind the rest of the world is in the commercialisation of innovation

Stanislav Sretenović, Historian

Serbia Can Become The Region’s Switzerland

The 21st century’s age of electronics and rapid communication requires experts in the social sciences and humanities, especially historical sciences, as they contribute to the development of a critical mind and democracy

Jelena Bogavac, Theatre Director, Dramatist, Writer

Life is an Eternal Dress Rehearsal

I often say that my life is that which flows between premieres. The theatre is such that demands the entire person... or at least their better part. Everything has long since become a theatre. Life caught the rhythm of rehearsals. Life is a dress rehearsal on the eve of a theatre premiere

I am excited to be in Serbia, because it has the potential to create regional change by addressing critical development concerns that go beyond...

Dr Sanja Popović Pantić, Economist, President of the Association of Business Women in Serbia

Business Women Invest in Knowledge

I belong to generation “X”. I always had a lot of belief in books, but I also, luckily, had an even greater need to check out everything in practise. Thus, this generation had a unique and, hopefully, never to be repeated “chance” to find – in the midst of the greatest inflation in world history and an environment at war – a decent job and to work “in their vocation”. During times when real values were devalued, I realised it was best to invest in knowledge

International Women’s Club Belgrade

Honour, Job & Responsibility

The life of a diplomatic spouse is anything but conventional. The spouse of diplomats must juggle a unique combination of family life, professional commitments, education, responsibilities and travel

Vesna Todorčević, Professor at the SASA Mathematical Institute

Professor Milena Dragicevic Šešić, UNESCO Chair in Cultural Policy and Management of the University of Arts in Belgrade

New Cultural Policy Essential

Cultural policy is today often led routinely and without much imagination from the government and various levels of state bodies

Vesna Brzev-Ćurčić, Training Psychoanalyst and Supervisor Medical Psychology Specialist

Growing Up in Serbia

Young people are becoming consumers, resulting in less creativity and active participation in life unless it's creativity in solving video games and posts on social networks

Đorđe Milutinović, Štark Arena Advisor

The Promoter

Placido Domingo, Sting, Jose Carreras, Nick Cave, Nigel Kennedy, Tom Jones, BB King, Chick Korea, Paco de Lucia, Ray Charles, James Brown, Julio Iglesias, Leonard Cohen, Alicia Keys, Bryan Ferry, Joe Cocker… these are just some of the hundreds of foreign and local artists that I’ve had the pleasure and privilege of promoting in Belgrade during past decades working as the head of the Sava Centre concert agency and director of the Belgrade Arena

Nada Popović Perišić, Founder and Professor of the Faculty of Media and Communication

Education is Inheritance for the Future

However it may sound today, I’m still an irreparable leftist. However, I don’t see that which I believe in on today’s political scene

Radoslav Zelenović, Director of the Audio-visual Archive and Sanu Digitisation Centre

Culture Is a Finite Resource

This year marks half a century since I came to Belgrade. My path took me to the Youth Centre and Cinema Club Belgrade, a place where you could do a lot of things that couldn’t be done elsewhere

Simona-Mirela Miculescu, Representative Of The UN Secretary-General And Head Of The UN Office In Belgrade

Keep Eyes Open To Possibilities

When the UN Secretary-General appointed me to lead the UN Office in Belgrade – which is empowered by him to politically support the countries of the region in their efforts towards improving regional cooperation and enhancing peace and stability – I didn’t know what to expect.

Johannes Irschik, Director Of The Austrian Cultural Forum And President Of EUNIC Serbia

Vera Madzgalj, Chief Executive Officer at BELhospice

Doing Something Meaningful Feels Special

Jelena Kovačević, Media Advisor to the Prime Minister Ana Brnabić

Ann Pešić, President Of The International Women’s Club (IWC) And Irish Honorary Consul

Respecting Diversity Through Cooperation

The International Women’s Club has been in existence for many years and has brought together women who are in Belgrade temporarily, either as members of the diplomatic community or for business reasons, and a number of local women who may have spent many years living abroad and have come back to live in Serbia and wish to keep those international connections

Jasna Dimitrijević, Manager Of Ilija M. Kolarac Endowment

Clear Vision Of Present And Future

It is a professional challenge and honour for every manager in the domain of culture to have the opportunity to manage a cultural/ educational institution, and in particular the Kolarac National University, which started operating in Belgrade 86 years ago

Violeta Jovanović, Executive Director, NALED

Public-Private Dialogue Key

For the past fifteen years, I have had the privilege of being engaged in growing civil society in the region and understanding how active and caring citizens gathered together in associations drive the development of their communities and countries

Vigor Majić, Director of the Petnica Science Centre

Children Will Change The World

I sincerely believe in the idea that people are the key factor in the development of society, incomparably more important than highways, luxury shopping centres or the strength of military units.

Milica Jović, CHRO, Nelt

The Future’s CHRO Is CEO’s Strategic Partner

It was two months ago that I found myself in a new role, which was familiar at first, albeit from a different perspective, as I transitioned from being an advisor to becoming an executive. Nevertheless, both my education and my career thus far have taught me that the first step towards success is to embrace change and learn from every possible opportunity

Danijela Čabarkapa, Executive Director Of The Japanese Business Alliance In Serbia

Embracing Opportunity

“I truly believe that we should embrace the opportunities and let them build us up by developing our way forward,” says Danijela Čabarkapa, executive director of the Japanese Business Alliance in Serbia

Danka Selić, General Manager Of The Belgrade Fair

Be Worthy Of Imagination

Being at the helm of a company like the Belgrade Fair, with an 80-year tradition, is an honour, a responsibility and a slightly surreal experience
