About Us

In carrying out its mission in the field of education and science, during the tradition 60 years long, the Faculty of Economics in Niš has become recognisable by the very successful organisation of scientific conferences. In particular, this applies to the scientific conference on regional development and demographic flows, which has been organised every year since 1996, with the permanent increase in the number of participants, as well as the number of countries from which the authors come.
