Meeting with representatives of the Office of the President of the Republic of Croatia

On Monday, November 16, 2020 at the invitation of the Office of the President of the Republic of Croatia, Mr. Zoran Milanović, we held a working visit and a meeting with the advisor to the President of the Republic for education, Mrs. Jadranka Živković. Our Adriatic Aerospace Association was represented by President Slobodan Danko Bosanac, Board Member Silvio Papić, colleagues Ida Srdić and Jasenka Duvnjak, Stevče Arsoski and Secretary General Danko Kočiš.

The introductory speech was given by President Bosanac in which he presented the work and activities of our organization so far and the importance that A3 represents for the Republic of Croatia, especially for the future of education, science and economy. Colleague Stevče Arsoski instructed the Office of the President in our efforts in the field of primary and secondary education, the work of space sections at technical schools and efforts to bring space activities closer to our students. Colleague Silvio Papić emphasized the specifics of our projects in higher education, and what the Republic of Croatia gets by creating such engineers and scientists in the field of space technologies. Colleague Srdić connected the field of education with the economy and in which direction to build the future of the Croatian space industry. Secretary Kočiš presented all the positive practice of popularizing space activities in the fields of education, science and economy through popular activities marking World Space Week and the work of our colleagues in the Space Generation Advisory Council. In the end, President Bosanac summarized all the above and asked the Office of the President of the Republic of Croatia to support our further work by accepting sponsorship of our most important activities, organizing the Brijuni Conference, other conferences on space topics, as well as supporting the project of the first Croatian satellite Perun I and World Space Week in Croatia.

Advisor to the President of the Republic of Croatia, Ms. Žarković listened with great interest to the presentations of our members, which was reflected in a large number of questions for our members who represented our organization, for which we more than professionally worked and concluded the meeting to the mutual satisfaction of both the Office of the President and our A3. We will regularly inform the Office of the President of the Republic of Croatia about future national activities at their request and we hope that we will have excellent cooperation in promoting education, science and the economy through space activities in the territory of our Republic of Croatia.

About Adria Space Conference 2019

The aim of the Meeting is to bring together regional activities in the field of Space research and development, to develop future technologies for the use in Space. We wish to intensify the regional collaboration where there is big difference in research and development in the field of Space. It should be opportunity for those with extensive experience to help those with no experience to the benefit of both.
