Following a long and successful tradition, the Faculty of Agriculture and Food Sciences at the University of Sarajevo is organising the 21st Annual Scientific Expert Conference in Agriculture and Food Industry in Neum, Bosnia and Herzegovina from September 29 to October 2, 2010.

The conference aims at networking and exchange of information, expertise and experience in order to develop a productive discussion as the first, but crucial step towards a faster sector development.

The conference is nationally and regionally recognized as very important forum. 170 papers are registered to be presented at the Conference, respectively: 108 papers from Bosnia and Herzegovina, 19 from Serbia, 15 from Albania, 12 from Croatia, five from FYR of Macedonia, three from Slovenia, two from Kosovo (under UNSCR 1244) and Montenegro, and one each from Turkey, Slovakia, Norway and Hungary.

In order to support and enhance regional cooperation, a round table under the title "Regional Cooperation: Challenges and Prospects" will be organised as a part of the conference. The possibilities to establish, enhance and finance regional cooperation will be outlined in introduction speeches prepared by representatives of the Regional Cooperation Council, the Directorate for European Integration, BiH and the National FP7 coordinator, BiH. So, a pool of new ideas and actual proposals and initiatives for cooperation supporting sector integration within Regional and EU economic and social life is expected as a result of the conference.

The Conference also offers opportunities for young people - graduates from the first and second cycle of academic education are invited to attend and to present their achievements, capabilities as well as problems and needs. The promotion of young people and their ideas is one of the most significant effects of the Conference.
