On February 5, 2010 during the 26th Annual Meeting and General Assembly of the Danube Rectors’ Conference in Novi Sad, Serbia, the University of Novi Sad signed the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.

Prof. Dr. Miroslav Veskovic, Rector of the University of Novi Sad and Dr. Dagmar Mayer, European Commission Policy Officer from the Directorate General for Research, officially signed the “Charter and Code” and thus, formally endorsed the commitment of the university to the idea behind this important European document.

The University of Novi Sad was the first Serbian university to sign the “Charter and Code” and by doing so showed awareness and respect for the roles, responsibilities and rights of researchers, as well as of their employers and funders. The University of Novi Sad strongly votes in favour of stimulating a favourable working environment for researchers and improving employment and working conditions. It strives to actively support a change in working culture and become a multiplier in promoting the principles of the “Charter and Code”. Besides, the University is very much aware of the clear benefit of becoming internationally visible and thus, raising its overall attractiveness.
