On the third day of the Symposium, a workshop was dedicated to project activities within Erasmus + project FINAC (Financial management, Accounting and Controlling curricula development for capacity building of public administration). After the introductory words of the project coordinator Slađana Benković, PhD, the participants presented the results achieved so far and agreed on future activities with the aim of sharing the experiences of all the participants from the region.
The fourth roundtable, Blockchain technologies for better business, was moderated by Miroslav Minović, PhD, an Associate Professor, and Mladen Čurić, PhD, Assistant Professor, both from the Faculty or Organizational Sciences, while the panelists were Radojko Miladinović, PhD, IT Director of the Belgrade Stock Exchange, and Matija Stanić, Product Specialist, Societe General Bank, and Novica Ninić, Production Manager, IBM Cloud.
The roundtable dealt with one of the burning topics – blockchain technology, with a special focus on the implementation of this technology in business. The panelists discussed the main advantages and disadvantages of blockchain technology, and the possible use of private blockchains for the improvement of business operations in various fields, e.g. quality control, banking, fintech, agriculture, health services, etc. The participants had the opportunity to learn more about the functioning of blockchain technologies, and the panelists were eager to answer the many questions of the audience. All the participants agreed that blockchain will soon become an integral part of everyday business, both on its own and in combination with traditional technologies.
The afternoon is booked for a visit to Potpećka Cave and the village of Zlakusa, both located in close proximity of Zlatibor. The Symposium participants thus have a chance to get acquainted with the nature, culture and tradition of our country. The participants who decided to stay in Zlatibor took part in sports competitions such as rope climbing, zipline, etc.
