The Way of Sciences is a major science promoting program, which was organized first in 2013, with an intention to create a tradition. The main goal of the program is to present (in an understandable way) the significance of research and scientific development essential in the functioning of the region’s successful companies and institutions. This way, the program tries to draw attention to the significance of scientific professions in the region’s development. Since the basic objective of the program is the picturesque and attractive presentation of professional orientation and scientific branches characteristic for our region, we considered it important to invite all companies (MOL, OTP, Woods of Vojvodina, food production and processing companies, etc.), interactive parks important for professional orientation (Than Memorial House), institutions of education and research (Technical College in Subotica, Budapest Corvinus University – Department in Senta, etc.), which actively take part in the development and image building of our region.

Funding: Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Hungary
Project details: Vojvodina, as a Northern province of Serbia, makes a single geographical unit with the Southern Great Plain region of Hungary. Vojvodina’s rich chernozem soil is the best of its kind in Europe, and makes the region’s agricultural potentials the best in the whole continent. During the past decades unfortunate economic policies pushed farmers into a disadvantagous position compared to farmers from other developped European states. According to the objectives of this project, we would like to help farmers in Vojvodina by using means of tenders in line with the „Szeged Process”, while diminishing the farmers’ disadvantage compared to other European countries by the means of research and education.
Based on Hungarian research results and higher education infrastructure, we would like to accomplish the project objectives below in two years time:

  • development of agricultural production, improving profitability,
  • rural agricultural development in order to make people stay in rural areas,
  • strengthening the integrative role of the mother within the family,
  • help in acquiring European standards and know-how, what will be useful after the project, too.
