The festival was officially opened by Nis City Mayor Darko Bulatović who, on this occasion, congratulated the jubilee of promotion of science and knowledge. He emphasized that the festival became the brand of our city and one of the most prestigious city events. Bulatovic pointed out that Nis was the capital of science and knowledge of creative young people these days. He said that the City of Nis more than ever invested in young people, in their education and progress. “The city has started the first phase of the construction of a science and technology park and allocated 50 million dinars for it. After the construction of Student Creative Center, the place where all students and all talented people can exchange experiences and ideas, we expect two more phases of construction. After that, I sincerely believe that Nis will have all the necessary conditions for the development of science, “Bulatovic said. For the past decade the science festival has become the largest in its field, i.e., the promotion of young talents and science, not only in southern Serbia, but also in the country and the region.
