Agreement on Cooperation Signed Between the University of Belgrade Faculty of Law and the National Academy for Public Administration
Today, at the Faculty of Law, an agreement on cooperation was signed between the National Academy for Public Administration (NAPA), and the University of Belgrade Faculty of Law. The agreement was signed by Prof. Dr Zoran Mirković, the Dean of the Faculty of Law, and Dražen Maravić, the provisional director of the National Academy for Public Administration, with the goal of establishing a successful, continuous cooperation in carrying out concrete joint activities. The cooperation of the two institutions will have an educational, applied, and developmental side to it, and it will be accomplished through connecting and joining scientific and expert resources of each signing party.
“By working together, we will improve the programme and the analytical-research activities, as well as the quality of work at both institutions. On the one hand, the students will have an opportunity to gain experience and practical knowledge at the Academy, and on the other, the teachers of the Faculty of Law will be in a position to improve the knowledge of our employees and trainees through organising different tribunes, lectures, conferences… The signing of this agreement is yet another way of expanding the cooperation between the Academy and educational institutions in order to improve the educational process and our way of work”, says Dražen Maravić, the provisional director of NAPA.
“The cooperation between our two institutions will bring multiple improvements to the quality of the regulations and strategic documents, while also adding to the professionalism, productivity, and efficacy of the public administration, at all levels. On the other hand, the Academy and the Faculty of Law will enable students of all levels to gain access to a practical dimension of legal work, making it easier for them to work with public administration offices in the future, and allowing, in turn, the public administration to have its pick of the finest representatives of the young generations, which, after all, is in public interest”, says the Dean of the Faculty of Law, Prof. Dr Zoran Mirković.
Some of the activities stipulated in the agreement are related to joint participation in national and international projects in the field of law (scientific-developmental, research, professional); the development of new, innovative technologies, processes and services through applying the results of scientific research performed either by one of the institutions, or a third party; mutual access to expert and scientific literature, and the development of publishing activities in the fields of mutual interest.
