The SAC Statement on the occasion of 15 years of the SEENET-MTP Network

December 15th, 2018

On the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the SEENET-MTP, the SAC would like to congratulate all network members, individuals and institutions, for their initiative, efforts and contribution to the training of students and young researchers in the general area of theoretical high-energy physics and cosmology, and to the development of a scientific community in the Balkan region with tight mutual cooperation among themselves and with the community of Europe and worldwide.

The organisation of a series of scientific events, thematic schools and workshops of high scientific level, exchange of students and researchers among Balkan institutions, leading to joint publications, as well as of outreach activities to the general public, despite the difficulties from the political and economic situation, were very important for this goal and should be continued.

Most of these activities would not be possible without the support from the ICTP and UNESCO. It is a fact that scientific cooperation is above politics, religions and ethnicity and can be achieved more easily than in other sectors. CERN, as another important supporter of the Network, is a clear example to follow of European collaboration that started much before the Common European Market and Union.

Our role as SAC is to advise the network on the scientific topics to promote and on the corresponding actions to take, on the scientific events to organise and on possible funding opportunities. We hope that our help will be beneficial to the goals of the SEENET-MTP which can be fulfilled only by the will and efforts of all its members.
