Our first strategic goal is to strengthen our scientific community through constant support and increase of investments in science. 2. Second important goal is to strengthen bilateral and international cooperation and open new international possibilities to our researchers. One of the key challenge in this context would be to increase the level of researchers mobility, both incoming and outgoing. 3. Third challenge that we have is to establish better relations between science and business and increase level of innovations. One of the most important projects would be the establishment of techno park. However, our activities on promoting science in society will be important for better understanding and eliminating the gap between research and business.  When we are talking of our first priority of Strengthening of the domestic research community the main activities are: • National research projects – Last call for projects with budget of 5 million € in October 2011 – 104 national scientific-research projects of basic and applied research are financed (2012-2014) which is in line with the Strategy for scientific research activity (2008-2016) and priority areas in research Rimski trg 46, 81000 Podgorica, Crna Gora Tel: (+382) 20 482 145; Fax: (+382) 20 234-168; E-mail: kabinet@mna.gov.me; Web: www.mna.gov.me
