Scope and Objectives


Throughout history Dubrovnik has been the place where prominent individuals and luminaries in different fields have come to exchange ideas, money, and merchandise. In modern times, it has hosted many distinguished guests attending different gatherings. In particular in the field of energy and environment, Dubrovnik has become known as a center of excellence and its many Conferences have produced new ideas and scientific, as well as technological, breakthroughs. The "Dubrovnik Conference on Sustainable Development of Energy, Water, and   Environment Systems" is devoted to the ultimate goal of modern society: sustainable development of energy, water and environment systems.

Energy, water and environment are commodities essential for continuous development of human society. The concept of "sustainable resource use" is a challenge that we must meet, if the present development of modern society is not to compromise the rights of future generations to   natural resources. The Conference will focus on the following objectives:

  1. To discuss sustainability concept of energy, water and environment and its relation to the global development
  2. To analyze potential scientific and technological processes reflecting energy, water and environment exchange
  3. To present energy, water and environment system models and their evaluation
  4. To present multi criteria assessment of energy, water and environment systems taking into a consideration economic, social, environmental and resource use aspects.

Dubrovnik is situated in the southernmost part of the Republic of Croatia. Founded in the 7th century, Dubrovnik is rich with cultural and historical monuments and is included in the UNESCO World Heritage list. The city is surrounded with the walls built between the 11th and 17th century.  Its cultural and scientific institutions include Museum at Rector's Palace, Cathedral Treasury, Pinacotheca, Franciscan monastery and cloister, with one of three oldest pharmacies in Europe (14th c.), the Cathedral (initial funds given by King Richard the Lionheart), one of the European oldest Synagogues, Marin Drzic Theatre, Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra, Interuniversity Center. Nature lovers can find here true Mediterranean landscape, and "enjoy the cleanest sea in the Mediterranean" (Jean Jacques Cousteau). Dubrovnik International Airport is situated 22 km from the city center.
