A significant number of our scientific and professional projects focus on this theme, and we continuously explore opportunities to apply sustainability principles in the university’s daily operations. Being included in THE Impact Rankings in the year when we celebrate our 20th anniversary is seen as recognition for the efforts we invest as part of our scientific and social mission to promote sustainable development within the community in which we operate and grow together,” said professor Nikša Burum, the Rector of the University of Dubrovnik.
