The Ruđer Bošković Institute Receives MIPRO Charter

At the grand opening of the 33rd International Conference on Informatics and Communication Technologies, Electronics and Microelectronics - MIPRO 2010 the RBI was awarded the MIPRO Charter for exceptional service in the development of ICT, electronics and microelectronics. The award was given to Dr. Danica Ramljak, Director General of the RBI at a ceremony held in the Congress hall of the Hotel Adriatic in Opatija.

Dr. Ramljak addressed the congress participants at the opening ceremony and gave a short talk on the Institute's 60th anniversary celebration.

From the inception of the MIPRO conference 33 years ago RBI scientists have actively participated in the organization of this event through membership in program committees, conference participation, roundtable discussions as well as holding exhibitions and demonstrations of emerging new technologies. One of the founders of MIPRO was former RBI scientist, Academician Dr. Branko Souček.

Academician Souček worked at the RBI from 1955 to 1976. He developed and operated the first digital computer in Croatia in 1959. He conceived the "256 channel analyzer, memory, logic and software" project which is considered to be the initiation of computer science in Croatia. Souček's computer was considered to be cutting edge technology at the time and engendered significant interest among scientists throughout the world.
