Through University of Belgrade as a legal entity. A new law that will establish AMRES as a legal entity is in the last phases of preparation

Coordinator of the NRENs


By a special decision of the Federal Government in 2001, University of Belgrade got a coordinating role for the NREN. The organizational unit – Belgrade University Computer Centre has been fulfilling that role during the whole period since year 2001. As the Director of Belgrade University Computing Centre, with a special decision of the Rector of University of Belgrade, appointed to be the Director of AMREJ. After Montenegro became an independent country, the NREN was renamed into AMRES. The coordination was done in planning, building, operating and financing activities of the NREN for the whole country.

University of Belgrade

Director of Belgrade University Computing Centre

The computing centre was established after IBM donated a mainframe computer to University of Belgrade. As a young professor, was elected to coordinate the establishment of a university computing centre that will offer services to students and professors of University of Belgrade. Initially, it was a part time coordination job (1/3 overtime), since the full time job was as a professor at Computer Engineering and Informatics Department, School of Electrical Engineering, University of Belgrade. During the period, Belgrade University Computing Centre started building the National Research and Education Network (NREN). Now the Director position is elective, like the Rector and vicerectors, within University of Belgrade. Part of activities for this position are described in the Coordination of AMRES. Coordinating development of IT solutions for University of Belgrade.
