Lauren Simmonds

Fantastic news for Dubrovnik as the city is set to play host to the largest gathering of Nobel Prize laureates in Europe this summer.

Dubrovnik has recently made quite a name for itself as a congress destination, and with continuing talks about gradually increasing the length of the currently accepted summer season, Dubrovnik’s tourism spectrum seems to only grow wider.

As DuList reported on the 10th of February 2017, following the announcement of Tourism Minister Gari Cappelli and prof. dr. Dragan Primorac, that the City of Dubrovnik will proudly host the 10th ISABS Conference on Forensic and Anthropologic Genetics and Mayo Clinic Lectures and Individualised Medicine this summer, from the 19th of June to the 24th of June 2017. The truly exceptional scientific event, which is dedicated to advances in the fields of medicine, forensics and anthropological genetics is expected to gather more than 500 participants from approximately 40 countries.

In addition to lectures from the world’s leading experts in the field of clinical and molecular medicine and the field of forensic and anthropological genetics, lectures will be held by no less than five Nobel Prize winners in chemistry and medicine.

”This conference is one of the most important international scientific events in 2017 and I was especially glad for it to be held in Croatia, and in Dubrovnik. Croatia has the potential to become one of the most recognisable destinations for business tourism, and the gathering of such a large number of experts from around the world certainly contributes to that strengthening and recognition. Soon, we will open the conference office as part of the Croatian Tourist Board and I believe that in the future, we will witness many such global events that will make Croatia a more competitive tourist destination” stated Tourism Minister Gari Cappelli.

Prof. dr. Dragan Primorac echoed Minister Cappelli’s remarks, pointing out that the position of Croatia as a state of knowledge in this manner is priceless, and that this year’s congress signifies a tremendous step forward for Croatia. It is the largest gathering of Nobel laureates in Europe this year.
