As part of the “Days of Belgrade”, at the ceremony of the City Assembly today, April 15, the names of the winners of the Belgrade City Award “Despot Stefan Lazarevic” for 2021 in twenty fields were announced.

Prof. Dr. Vladimir Tomašević, Dean of the School of Engineering Management attended the proclamation of the Belgrade City Award laureates, as a Chairman of the Commission for Natural and Technical Sciences.

The “Days of Belgrade” holiday was established in 2002 and represents the unification of two important dates in the history of our capital:

  • the first mention of the Slavic name of Belgrade, which first appears in written documents on April 16, 878, and
  • the day of handing over the keys of the city of Belgrade to Prince Mihailo Obrenović on April 19, 1867.


The City Assembly is awarding annual prizes for the 19th time, and since last year it has been called the “Prize of the City of Belgrade – Despot Stefan Lazarević.”

This year as well, the commissions, composed of the most eminent experts, performed an extremely responsible job, among a large number of nominations, they made the selection of the best among truly exceptional quality individuals.
