  8. 8. ASSETS OF THE NETWORK• Mobility program:– About 160 exchanges (bothresearchers and students) in theregion (2005-20112)in average 20 per year– Duration of visits: one week (forstudents up tp one month)• Network meetings: 15 meetings in7 years, about 750 participants• Publications: Monographs, NetworkConference Proceedings: about 10issues• Research: Numerous joint paperswith acknowledgements to UNESCOand ICTP for support, partially or evenfully based on collaboration duringexchanges• Scientific education andpromotion of science/physics– lectures and books– Meetings and Competitions ofHigh School students andundergraduate students:``Science and Society`` in 2008,2009 and 2011– Special class for high schoolstudents with special interests insciences, Nis, Serbia,www.pmf.ni.ac.rs/f_odeljenje• Map of Excellence in Physics andMathematics in SEE: Profiles of 40research/higher educationinstitutions in SEE, from 7 countries
  9. 9. PROMOTION OF SCIENCESEENET-MTP web portal became one of the most popular source of information concerningMTP in our region
  10. 10. WHAT SEENET COULD CONNECT ?• The science, education and culture from Southeastern EU countriesthrough UNESCO• The Physicists from Southeastern European Countries with Europethrough ICTP and EPS• The Physicists from Balkansthrough Balkan Physics UnionLET’S HOPE AND WORK ON THAT !
