Steadily and relentlessly, the University SSST is developing projects through which it is becoming not just a center of knowledge and world-class education, but also the center of developing initiatives, scientific networking and cooperation.
One such project is our annual, third in a row Mediterranean Forum “Sarajevo-Dubrovnik Constellation”, this year held on 25th and 26th October at our Conference Center. We have broaden our horizons and, besides economy and geopolitics, medicine and digitalisation, have been also talking about energy, energy resources and sustainable solutions for today’s consumerist world. Over 20 great speakers from 10 Mediterranean countries have been our lecturers during these two days, with opening keynote speech from Professor Vesna Pusic, former Minister of Foreign and European Affairs of the Republic of Croatia.
