28. 02. 2012
On 24th February 2012 in the Rectorate of the University of Defence, Rector of the University of Defence Lieutenant General Prof Dr Miodrag Jeftić and Rector of the University of Defence of the Czech Republic Prof Dr Rudolf Urban signed an agreement on technical and business cooperation formalizing a lasting cooperation between the units of higher education (MA and MMA) of the University of Defence in Belgrade and the University of Defence of the Czech Republic in Brno
The Agreement is made for the period of five years and it specifies the future activities, especially in the area of scientific and research exchange, mobility of administrative and other professional staff, cadets and data on research results. It also defines the cooperation in the field of education and training, organization of courses, symposia and academic conferences, and organization and execution of joint research projects of interest to both parties.
Prof Urban pointed out that signing of this agreement was an important historical step and a turning point in the development of cooperation, which up to now had been very good anyway, but from now on there would be no formal obstacles for its further development. He also stressed that the current financial situation did not provide favourable conditions for implementation of major cooperation projects, but this may be changed in the following period. He said that although he was finishing his term in July this year, the incoming Rector shared his opinion of the importance of this cooperation so that it would be continued in the same spirit.
General Jeftić concluded that the real value of this agreement would be manifested in the time to come. He expressed his gratitude to Prof Urban for his ardent assistance and cooperation throughout the process of forming the University of Defence in Belgrade, adding that Prof Urban would always be a dear guest of the University of Defence and that the members of the University of Defence in Belgrade would always be reliable partners in cooperation with our friends from the University of Defence of the Czech Republic.
