  • WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

    WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

    • The University of Dubrovnik has different laboratories, experimental aquaculture systems, breeding parks, vessels and a suitable facility for practical student work in the Bistrina cove (part of the Bay of Mali Ston) at its disposal.
    • Training and research vessel ‘Naše more’ (‘Our Sea’) is used to go on field trips and thus become acquainted with research methods at sea.
    • Together with their teachers, students participate in projects, scientific conferences and publish papers with the results of their research in domestic and international journals.
