CENTRE FOR MEDITERRANEAN STUDIES
Centre for Mediterranean Studies (CMS) is the institution founded by the University of Zagreb to which it legally belongs.
The intensification of the academic programmes specially related to the Mediterranean area led the University of Zagreb to establish the CMS - Center for Mediterranean Studies in 1996.
CMS is promoting cooperation initiatives, exchanges and dialogue, bringing together various universities, heritage-management institutions and cultural entities. It has a long tradition in organizing conferences, summer schools, courses and training seminars, all of which follow the concept of a Mediterranean region that includes the entire territory without any limits or divisions.
In accordance to that idea, the Centre is also cooperating with local and regional authorities as well as numerous NGO's, thus enabling the diffusion of Mediterranean culture and taking care of the welfare of the whole Mediterranean community.
CMS conducts multidisciplinary scientific programmes such as:
- International interdisciplinary workshops
- Scientific conferences and seminars
- Summer schools
- UNESCO programmes - series of international and national meetings dealing with world heritage (conservation, reconstruction, development)
- Research projects with international partners
CMS is hosted by the Centre for Advanced Academic Studies.
