Minister Nedeljko Čubrilović solemnly opened the international scientific conference of "Apeiron" University SAFE-URBAN-MOBILE

"I've been to similar conferences, but none of them covered both traffic safety and sustainable urban mobility like this one today. It is precisely at this gathering that there are current social topics that need to be dealt with, because goals were set in earlier strategic documents that were not fully achieved. That's why we need a conference like this to provide answers to the directions of future action", with these words today the Minister of Transport and Communications of the Republika Srpska Nedeljko Čubrilović solemnly opened the first international scientific conference SAFE-URBAN-MOBILE. The organizers of the scientific meeting are the Faculty of Traffic of the Pan-European University and the company EiB Internationale - center for motor vehicles.

Until now, we have been dealing with the adoption of important documents in the field of traffic strategy and solving pressing infrastructural problems, and what was missing was a scientific conference like this, which filled the gap", emphasized the deputy mayor.
