On 24 April, Prof. Radoslav Gajanin, Rector of the University, talked with Prof. Jasmin Komic, Minister of Science and Technology, on continuing the cooperation between the two institutions, expressing his gratitude for the realization of scientific projects and publication of papers.
Prof. Gajanin said that the acts of the University were harmonized with the acts of the respective acts of the line ministry. In addition, Prof. Gajanin said that the 2017-2025 Development Strategy of the University of Banja Luka had been harmonized with the Ministry’s Strategy for Scientific, Research, and Technological Development of the Republic of Srpska, with all the strategic goals of the University aimed at transferring the know-how and closely cooperating with the economy.
Minister Komic also commended the existing level of cooperation, but he said that the scientific productivity could be elevated, saying that the Ministry was looking for ways to increase it by encouraging programme activities in different areas, from supporting research projects, publishing papers and other editions, and by creating a framework for improving scientific work. One of the main goals should be commercialization of knowledge, without neglecting primary functions of university such as education and research, since they are reflected upon every segment of a society.
The meeting was attended by the closest associates of the Rector and the Minister respectively.
