  • Within the Small Systems Simulation Symposium that took place in Nis on 12. 14. February, 2010, at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering, a round table devoted to the Tempus JEP 41107 was planned.

    It took place on Sunday February 14 with participation of representatives of all parties taking part in the project.

    The main topics considered were related to the status of the realization of the project task, discussion of the preparation of the Final Report and preparation for application for the next phase project.

    Several members of the faculty teaching staff took part in the discussion. The main interest expressed was how separate parts of the project plan were managed and what are the benefits of the traveling within the projects. It was stressed that stays between two weeks and three months are most convenient for knowledge acquisition and transfer and for preparation and creating forms of long term cooperation.
