The Center for the Promotion of Science (CPN)
The Center for the Promotion of Science (CPN) is a public entity from Belgrade, Serbia, established in 2010 with the task to promote and communicate science and technology. The Center, according to its mandate, cooperates with research and educational institutions at all levels in Serbia and worldwide, works closely with government ministries as well as media, private sector and civil society. CPN’s goal is to influence and adapt general research agendas to reflect the needs of society. A valuable example in this context is the effort to promote gender equality in research and technology, in actions such as motivating girls to study science or organising coding classes for them. Citizen science and co-creation methodologies, art and science collaborations, diverse educational programmes underlying STE(A)M concept, are instrumental and guiding approaches of the CPN work.
