Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, May 4, 2018 – CERN’s delegation is extremely satisfied with its visit to Croatia, Science and Education Minister Blaženka Divjak said on Friday in Split after she held the final round of the talks with the five-member delegation of the European Organization for Nuclear Research known as CERN, who were on a tour of Croatia on 2-4 May.

They were impressed with so many innovative companies and individuals in Croatia, the minister said after the delegation of experts from CERN spent the last three days in Croatia and on Friday met with Minister Divjak to relay their impressions. “We hear a lot of good suggestions and I am certain that their report will be positive,” Divjak told reporters outside the Institute for Oceanography and Fishery in Split after the meeting.

She believes that the process of Croatia’s accession to CERN should be completed by the end of 2018 and that next year Croatia could sign an accession agreement with that Institution based in Meyrin, Switzerland, which, she claimed, is a “huge opportunity for Croatia.”

CERN works on projects and advertises tenders for projects valued about 500 million euro a year and companies and industry can compete for funding. “In that sense, I am glad and certain that our Croatian scientists, researchers, innovators and our entrepreneurs will utilise this opportunity,” said Divjak.
