JonjicProf. Dr. Stipan Jonjic said for the daily newspapers Novi List: "all these years we have been very successful and internationally recognized, despite the fact that it has not not always been easy to keep up the good work, because in the early days we did not have all that is necessary to carry out high quality research. My success is due to the fact that from the very beginning I was lucky enough to work with high quality associates - young people who were and are doing their doctoral researches in my group, after which they were become independent researchers who went in various directions, while some of them are still the backbone of our scientific work".
