The University of Niš was founded in 1965 as a state HE institution. At present, the University comprises 13 faculties: Faculty of Civil Engineering and Architecture, Faculty of Economics, Faculty of Electronic Engineering, Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Occupational Safety, Faculty of Philosophy, Faculty of Physical Culture, Faculty of Science and Mathematics, Faculty of Technology and Teacher-Training Faculty.
The University of Niš presently has 27088 students in all levels of study, 1560 teaching staff and more than 600 administrative and support staff.
One of the leading principles of the University of Niš is to become a part of the European higher education area and to adjust its plans and programs against this aim, in the context of the reform of higher education system within the Tempus and other programs.

The University of Niš Faculty of Science and Mathematics (UN) has 6 departments: Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Mathematics, Computer Sciences and Geography. In the Department of Chemistry there are 30 professors and 4 teaching assistants, permanently involved in teaching and research activities and over 200 students. From its foundation, 1500 students have obtained Bachelor degrees and 25 PhDs have been awarded. The Department of Chemistry has 6 laboratories: for Inorganic Chemistry, Analytical and Physical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry, Applied and Industrial Chemistry, Mass Spectrometry and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance. The Mass Spectrometry Laboratory and Laboratory for Applied and Industrial Chemistry deal mainly with the problems of environmental and industrial chemistry. The activities are directed towards: the development of methods for the identification and determination of toxic compounds and their effects in food, water, soil and air and the investigation of photochemical and microbial degradation of pollutants. Mass Spectrometry Laboratory was established through cooperation between UN and University Pierre and Marie Curie from Paris, in the area of mass spectrometry in 2008. Through this cooperation 9 International Schools (continuous professional development courses): “Mass Spectrometry in Life Sciences” were organised, attended by more than 550 participants from Serbia and neighbouring countries. Later CEA and UoG have joined the School.

University of Belgrade

 belgrade university

The University of Belgrade is over 200 years old. It is oldest and the largest HE institution in Serbia. It accounts for more than half the higher education provision and about 70% of the scientific production in Serbia. The University is located in 6 centres. It has 31 faculties, 11 research institutes and a student population of almost 90,000. UB has very well developed cooperative ties with other universities and research institutions throughout the World; and it has established joint degrees with several universities in Europe. The university is currently implementing the Bologna process. The modern Faculty of Chemistry, an institution of the Belgrade University, developed from "Licej" (Lyceum) (1838-1863) and "Velika škola" (Advanced School) (1863-1905). "Licej" had two departments at first: Philosophy and Law. In 1853 a new class was formed at "Licej" - it was a scientific-technical class which, among other branches of science, started studying chemistry. Scientific and teaching activities are realized through six chairs: Chair of organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry, biochemistry, applied chemistry and Chair of chemical education. Research is organized through about 20 scientific projects financed by the Ministry of education and science of Republic of Serbia and 5 international projects. More than 3000 students have graduated from the Faculty since its foundation and among them over 100 specialists, more than 360 Master and over 210 PhD students obtained their degrees at the Faculty.

CEA is a research body with a technological focus on defence and national security, energy and healthcare technology. The CEAs commitment to advanced technology enables its Life Sciences Division to combine high-level scientific progress with applied cross-disciplinary projects that favours innovation in healthcare, biotechnology and environment, with a strong opening in diagnostics and therapeutics. The aim is to supply novel concepts and tools that are needed to improve our understanding of complex living systems, diagnostics, imaging methods and environment monitoring. Among the permanent staff of 1300 people of the Life Science Division, two large institutes: the Institute of Biology and technology Saclay (Ibitecs) and the Institute of Environmental Biology and Biotechnology (IBEB), are largely involved in these fields. Ibitecs has fifteen mass spectrometers (triple quadrupole, Q-TOF, MALDI-TOF, Orbitrap™ and Fourier-transform ion cyclotron resonance) that are used for the elucidation of drug metabolism or bio-pollutants in complex environment, and in addition – a platform of immunoanalysis and genomic analyses such as PCR which are dedicated to biological and environmental diagnostics. IBEB is also strongly involved in the response, resistance and adaptation mechanisms of plants and micro-organisms to abiotic stresses, particularly radio nucleotides, heavy metals and ionizing radiation, as well as plant-bacteria interactions and microbial hydrogen production. For instance an international consortium led by IBEB researchers, has succeeded in characterizing the structure and function of a protein involved in the production of magnetite nanomagnets in magnetotactic bacteria. This protein is crucial to the metallurgical activity of the bacterium. It is expected to result in the development of biotechnological applications, especially in the fields of decontamination.

Since its establishment in 1992, “Zlatiborac” stands on solid foundations – high-quality products that are made at the crossroad of tradition, nature and innovation. Our manufacturing facilities are located in the same place where the tradition began – in the pristine nature of Zlatibor mountain village Mačkat (Užice, western Serbia). “Zlatiborac” expands its production only to the extent that will not change the original and recognizable taste and quality of more than 25 product types, including dried and smoked meat. The growing demand for our smoked hams, salamis and sausages imposed constant increase of production, while preserving original recipes, recognizable flavor and quality standards. Manufacturing facilities are spread over 30,000 square meters, on the same place where the first family-owned drying chamber is standing, for more than 120 years. The factory in Mačkat and four regional business centers in Serbia employ about 300 people, while the products are available in thousands of retail stores across Serbia. “Zlatiborac” has implemented HACCP system since 2009, and during the following year will start with implementation of IFS and I ISO 9001 standards. Company currently employs nine graduate engineers of food technology. In the area of control of our products “Zlatiborac” cooperates with the “Institute of Meat Hygiene and Technology”, and with “VSI Kraljevo”, for the external control of surfaces which are in contact with food, in addition to the internal supervisory actions. Company is going to establish new laboratory (in next year or two) for microbiological and chemical food control, which should be accredited and will work independently of our company, able to implement all accredited methods for Food Safety Control (FSC) needed in the industry of meat and milk. The current capacity of “Zlatiborac” is 750t of fermented dry sausages, 150t of dry meat products and 100t of dry bacon per project, being at the same time a Serbian leader in fermented products processing (so-called “raw-cooked meat products“ or products with thermal treatment). Currently company exports to CEFTA market, Customs Union, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Sweden etc. On the import side of business, “Zlatiborac” uses a pork meat from Germany, the pork back fat from Spain and beef meat from Austria. Company has received multiple awards, like "Best Buy Award", "My choice", "Corporative Superbrands“, as well as several awards from the German Agricultural Society (DLG) in the field of product quality.
