Professor Sepčić addressed the attendees on behalf of all award winners: "It is a duty of science to embrace humanities as well, because only then can the University cultivate culture. I thank the Foundation’s founders, as well as all the benefactors who have participated in its work, and whose virtues are altruism and philanthropy – the most important of human values. Special thanks go to our families, whose support played a crucial role. The awards we received fill us with great pleasure and are a stimulus for further action.''
