The Fund was founded by the
Municipality, what is today the City of Sremska Mitrovica with support
from schools, companies and and associations of citizens whose area of
work is culture and education.
The Fund also provides material
support for participation in contest and knowledge olympics, as
well as all other activities whose goal is promote research
abilities, publish scientific and professional works and publicise
artistic creations. Apart from that, the Fund organises additional
lessons for talented and gifted children in the fields of mathematics,
IT, physics, chemistry, English and French, electrical engineering and
justifiably naming it after Atanasije Stojkovic, the City
of Sremska Mitrovica decided at the same time to financially support
and offer knowledge to young and creative people with great abilities
so they can become the future of our science, but also in order to
preserve the unjustly neglected memory of the first scientist from this
region. Details from the life and works of Atanasije Stojkovic, as well
as a short preview of his bibliography can be found HERE!
