On Friday, September 10, 2021, at the age of 58, our colleague, Miroslav Milinović has passed away. The indelible contribution that Miroslav Milinović gave to SRCE, as well as to international teams and projects, was exceptional.

The constitutive session of the Council of the Croatian Open Science Cloud (HR-OOZ) Initiative was held at the Ministry of Science and Education on September 3rd, 2021. This event was the first step towards the development of a national open science plan and the establishment of the HR-OOZ.

In August, 14.52 PB of data was transferred through the Croatian Internet eXchange (CIX), which is the highest amount of traffic generated through CIX since its establishment in 2000.

On September 3rd, 2021, the leaders of open science in the Republic of Croatia begin working on building a modern and competitive science system that will be based on the principles of open science and open access.

University Computing Centre (SRCE) has a long tradition in the area of information and communication technologies. It was founded in 1971 within the University of Zagreb, the only Croatian university at the time, with the purpose to enhance the implementation of information technologies in the academic community as well as in Croatia in general.

Today, SRCE is the main computing centre and the architect of the e-infrastructure, covering both the University of Zagreb and the whole research and high education system. Furthermore, SRCE is the competence center for information and communication technologies as well as the center for education and support in the area of ICT application.

International cooperation plays a key role in economic and social development and in solving major global challenges, but the role of international cooperation is particularly important in development of information and communication technologies. In such context, SRCE has been participating and taking active part in international projects for decades. SRCE participates in the work of a number of international associations and organisations, while continuing formal and informal contacts with other international institutions and experts.

Through membership in international associations and organizations and through collaboration in international projects SRCE provides, besides the exchange of knowledge and experiences, integration of Croatia and Croatian scientists into the European Research (ERA) and European Higher Education (EHEA) Area.
