Since 2008, the Geographical Institute "Jovan Cvijić" Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, has been dedicated to the transfer of scientific knowledge toward formal education. The mentioned activities were implemented through the programs for continuous professional development of employees in formal education, accredited by the Institute for the Improvement of Education and Training (ZUOV) - Center for Professional Development of Employees in Education.
