Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts

Published 14.01.2013. [12:16]

The Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (Serbian: Српска академија наука и уметности/Srpska akademija nauka i umetnosti; САНУ/SANU) is a learned society, the most prominent academic institution in Serbia, founded in 1841.

The Academy’s membership has included Josif Pančić, Jovan Cvijić, Stojan Novaković, Branislav Petronijević, Mihajlo Pupin, Nikola Tesla, Milutin Milanković, Mihailo Petrović-Alas, and many other scientists, scholars and artists, both Serbian and foreign.

The SANU Memorandum (1986) edited by Serb intellectuals, as well as public officials, referred to in Part I of this Annex, expressed the plight of Kosovo’s Serbs. The document was considered by many to be the heralding of a new ethnic nationalism. The paper placed the imprimatur of Serbia’s most prestigious intellectuals on the cause of militant Serbian nationalism and was instrumental in spreading anti-Albanian sentiment. Some consider the SANU Memorandum has purpose of reviving the Greater Serbian ideology and to put it into political practice.

Today, the Academy directs a small number of scientific research projects which are realized in cooperation with other Serbian scientific institutions and through international cooperation.
