Basic and Engineering Sciences and Education occupy a central place in educational and scientific system of modern society and their development has a great impact on many segments of the economy and society.

Creating a database of scientific capacities, working through the examples of Nis and Craiova, will be used to exchange ideas about sustainable development strategy of Science and Education in the region. Assessment of capacity in the Balkan region in the Basic and Engineering Sciences and Education, especially in Physics and Mathematics is the basic theme of the meeting.

The possibility of forming a proposal elements and priority areas of joint scientific-educational policy, the establishment of networks of institutions and individuals at the regional level, connecting basic science with the economic and cultural trends, the inclusion of local government in such projects and experience of scientific and technological parks are the subject of the round table that is part of the meeting.

Database of BES research centres and institutions in SEE

In order to support Member States of the South Eastern European (SEE) Region in defining their policies for science, the UNESCO Office in Venice has initiated a mapping of research centres established in the area. The database created, shall provide the knowledge of basic indicators related to the research centres and institutions in an attempt to acknowledge, on the one side, quality research undertaken in the region in basic and engineering sciences (BES) and related scientific fields, and, on the other side, the potential of the research centres and institutes to take an active part in regional and international scientific cooperation.
