Two Cities, A Sea of Opportunities

The delegation of the University of Rijeka, headed by its Madam Rector, Prof. Snježana Prijić-Samaržija, Ph.D., attended a bilateral meeting on possibilities for cooperation between Rijeka and Trieste entitled "Trieste - European Capital of Science 2020 and Rijeka - European Capital of Culture 2020: Two Cities, Two Events, Sea of Opportunities", held in Trieste on Tuesday, February 27th, 2018, and organized by the Center for Economic and Social Studies Dialoghi Europei from Trieste.

Since Trieste will be "presiding" over science and Rijeka over culture in 2020, these two cities want to use this lucky coincidence to establish a dialogue between natural sciences and humanities by expanding the culture of science and humanities.

The common characteristics of these two cities, as well as their geographical proximity, make this cooperation natural if not even binding.

Present at the meeting:

Professor Stefano Fantoni, Head of the International Trust Fund Trieste,

Professor Maurizio Fermeglia, University of Trieste Rector,

Professor Snježana Prijić-Samaržija, Ph.D., University of Rijeka Rector,

Professor Alen Ružić, M.D., Ph.D., UNIRI Vice-Rector for Science,

Professor Sanja Bojanić, Ph.D., Head of the UNIRI Center for Advanced Studies of South East Europe
