Greetings on the occasion of the 40th Anniversary of IUC in 2012
As an established promoter of the Croatian and world science, the Inter-University Centre Dubrovnik, during its forty years of activity, confirmed its status as a unique international institution of
higher education and science in the Republic of Croatia; an institution open for meetings, exchange of ideas and research results as well as for the cooperation of scientists in all scientific
areas all over the world.
Prof. Ivo Josipovic - President of the Republic of Croatia
In the inspiring ambience of the historical town of Dubrovnik participants from different parts of
the Globe contribute to building a world of understanding and tolerance. IUC organisation, mission and achievements vouch for the Centre’s long future.
Prof. Krunoslav Pisk, IUC Director General
Through courses, through intensive connections with numerous universities, research institutions
and academies, through international workshops and conferences Inter-University Centre contributes toward realizing a society emphasizing and increasing human and social capitals - a global
society of individual human beings, of sovereign states and of variety of social structures aimed at
increasing life satisfaction and welfare of all human beings.
Academician Ivo Šlaus, Vice Chair of the IUC Council
IUC Mission
The Inter-University Centre (IUC) Dubrovnik is an independent, international institute for
advanced studies. Its mission is to foster progress in the humanities, social sciences, natural
sciences, maths and medicine by encouraging and promoting international cooperation among
researchers and students. It pursues this mission primarily by organising and hosting conferences,
courses, and study programmes, and by building regional and global networks for academic
exchange. It seeks to promote scientific excellence and independent scholarship in an atmosphere
of pluralism and peaceful coexistence. The IUC draws inspiration from the historical place of
Dubrovnik as a self-governing city-state and meeting point at the crossroads of cultural and
political concerns.
Founded in 1972, the IUC became an important venue for the exchange of ideas across east and
west, north and south, helping to overcome blocs and promoting understanding. Today, the IUC
builds on its traditions and achievements in the changed global environment. Since its foundation,
more than 70,000 scholars and students have come to the IUC from universities and other academic institutions across the world.
Topics of particular attention in IUC conferences and courses include: Southeast Europe studies,
Mediterranean studies, regions and regionalism, conflict and peace, human rights and legal studies,
philosophy, information sciences, life sciences, and public health.

Support, Scholarships & Credit Points
The IUC is unfortunately not in a position to provide any scholarships, since there are no financial
means available to set up appropriate grant programmes, but there are two IUC related funds
offering support especially for IUC courses:
● The Croatian Ministry of Science, Education and Sports provides graduate students and
professors from Croatia with four scholarships per course which cover travel expenses and half
board accommodation. Applications may be submitted by course directors or interested candidates
directly to the IUC Secretariat. For application form visit http://iuc.hr/croatian-ministry.php.
● The Open Society Institute is supporting advanced students and young faculty members
studying and working in the fields of humanities and social sciences from Southeast Europe and
the Former Soviet Union region at IUC courses with scholarships (accommodation and in some
cases partial travel compensation). For information visit http://iuc.hr/hesp-osi.php.
Furthermore, preferential attention should be paid to national funding institutions and foundations
often providing scholarships or grants for postgraduate courses, e.g. DAAD (German Academic
Exchange Service) offers stipends and support of new courses. For information visit
http://daad.de/stipends. Official Austrian grants database can be found at www.grants.at.
Course and conference participants are kindly requested to approach their course directors,
the academic exchanges service at their home universities and of course the internet for further
inquiries.
A certificate is awarded to each student who attends a full course and satisfactorily completes a
written contribution in the field of study for the course. Course directors decide in accordance with
the university and the respective graduate and research training program, how many ECTS points
are awarded. ECTS points will be measured by the necessary workload of the student to achieve
defined learning outcomes and competences. The workload includes time the student needs for
lectures, seminars, independent work, reading, learning, writing papers and exam.
IUC Facilities
Lecture Hall (up to 110 seats) ● 3 large classrooms (up to 50 seats) ● 7 medium classrooms (up to
30 seats) ● Tele conferencing classroom (24 seats) ● Computer room (12 PCs) with internet
connection, wireless LAN and printer ● Cabinets ● Projectors ● Air condition and
heating ● Large courtyard

Foundation & History
The Inter-University Centre has lived a rich life so far and has taken great pride in serving as a
venue for scholarly cooperation. It is all set to continue its mission.
The idea of the IUC developed in response to urgent affairs; there was a cold war going on.
Concerned scholars saw the importance of creating new opportunities for contact and exchange of
knowledge and ideas across division lines. Would it be possible to create strong arenas where
scholars from various parts of the world could meet to pursue important scientific issues in a
diplomatic and peace-generating way? There was a wish to strengthen the role of scientists in
bridge-building between nations and cultures, ideologies and political systems, rather than
continuing the troublesome schisms that the world had become so used to over the decades
following World War II.
Plans for a United Nations University were being discussed in the late 1960’s. In a meeting of
university leaders in Montreal in 1970, the Rector of the University of Zagreb at that time, Ivan
Supek, proposed an alternative or a supplement that won wide support. He suggested to build an
Inter-University Centre that is fully in the hands of the cooperating scholars and universities
themselves – an institution free of government control. Luckily, the city of Dubrovnik had offered
Supek a building that could serve as a home for the kind of international centre he envisioned.
It must be remembered that Yugoslavia held a unique position at the time; Yugoslavia under Tito
was non-aligned. It had the potential to provide conditions for contacts that could not otherwise be
achieved. Dubrovnik, with its rich history, culture, its beauty and friendly atmosphere, certainly
appeared as an ideal site, and an Inter-University Centre located here could also serve as a
breathing-hole between East and West. For example, scholars from Eastern Europe were allowed
to travel to Dubrovnik, whilst to a large extent countries in the West were beyond reach. So, a
small group of individuals representing a handful of universities internationally were invited to
come to Dubrovnik to consider Supek’s idea.
70 110 participants since 1972
1 951 courses & conferences since 1972
The decision was made: The Inter-University Centre was to become reality, and work was started
to establish a viable organization and a sound basis for effective operation.
The centre could not have been established and could not have entered into its successful life, had
it not been for the generosity extended to it by the University of Zagreb. While the IUC has
benefited from the generosity of the University of Zagreb, it has given much in return by
connecting young scholars from Croatia and its broader region to active and generous international
networks of scholars.
The Inter-University Centre soon became a very attractive venue for academic exchange. From the
few universities represented by the founders, the number of universities formally associated with
the IUC grew to more than 250 before the outbreak of the wars in 1991. Following the wars the
number of member universities has declined to approximately 170. Now the level of programme
activities in courses and conferences remains as high as ever, and IUC Dubrovnik in competition
with other actors on the international scholarly arena provides a whole series of extensive
programmes to promote study abroad and to globalize higher education. Scholars, students and
teachers keep coming; they are happy to be in Dubrovnik and they are usually eager to come back
for new IUC events.
