Highlights 2020-2021

  • The Croatian Academy of Engineering brings together more than 280 renowned domestic and foreign experts in the field of technical and biotechnical sciences. In the past year, HATZ members invested a lot of effort and knowledge to increase the Croatian Academy’s notability in Croatia and globally.
  • Despite the COVID-19 pandemic the work of HATZ has been recognized by many domestic and foreign institutions, evidenced through an increased number of requests for cooperation, invitations to organise/co-organise meeting and conferences. As well as an increased in HATZ members attending meeting of pubic and media interest. More than 30 domestic and international events have been organized under the auspices of the Croatian Academy of Engineering.
  • The Croatian Academy of Engineering has organised several conferences:
    • Croatian Engineer’s Day, Zagreb, Faculty of Civil Engineering, University of Zagreb, March 2020;
    • International Scientific Conference “Printing & Design”, May 2020;
    • Annual conference “Euro-CASE 2020 – Dealing with Challenges of the European Energy Transition”, November 2020.
  • In cooperation with the Croatian Engineering Association, the Croatian Academy of Engineering organized the Day of Engineers of the Republic of Croatia. The yearly meeting took place for the sixth time and was one of the most important gatherings of these two organizations. Held in March 2020 Engineers’ Day of Republic of Croatia was dedicated to STEM and the insufficiently used educational and development potential of the Croatian society.
  • An international conference called Printing & Design 2020 was held in June 2020, co-organized by the Centre for Graphic Engineering of the Croatian Academy of Engineering. The meeting was organised in a hybrid form due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A small number of participants followed the gathering live from the Faculty of Civil Engineering, University of Zagreb, while most of the participants joined the meeting using the Zoom platform.
  • The Academy has been active in the field of international cooperation, in particular in the field of cooperation with CAETS and Euro-CASE through their membership in these organizations and regular participation in online meetings.
  • The Croatian Academy of Engineering, as a long-term member of Euro-CASE, on November 20th 2020 held an international scientific-professional annual conference Euro-CASE 2020 on “Dealing with Challenges of the European Energy Transition”.
  • A conference organisation committee was appointed, who comprised:
    Prof. Nikola Čavlina, PhD, President of the Board; Prof. Vladimir Andročec, PhD, President of HATZ; Prof. Slavko Krajcar, PhD, Member of the HATZ’s Board; Prof. Zdravko Terze, PhD, HATZ’s Vice President; Prof. Neven Duić, PhD, Secretary of the HATZ’s Department of Energy Systems and Prof. Vladimir Mrša, PhD, HATZ’s Secretary General.
