About the Institute


In March 2016, a new series of lectures called Forum40 was initiated at the National Institute of Chemistry. Each month one department has a chance to present its research. The aim of the lectures is getting to know your colleagues, research that they do and striving for accelerated cooperation between departments. Lectures last 40 minutes and are followed by 20 minutes of discussion.

Forum is moderated by dr. Petar Djinović from the Department for Environmental Sciences and Engineering.
You wish to act as a speaker at Forum40? Call 01 4760491 or petar.djinovic(at)
