Montenegro’s Minister of Science, Dr. Sanja Damjanović, and the Director of the Clinical Center of Montenegro, Dr. Jevto Eraković, travelled to Switzerland where they met with Professor Thomas M. Kessler, in Zurich. Their meeting took place “in order to establish co-operation that would primarily focus on improving the quality of health care in Montenegro, and on the basis of joint scientific, educational and health projects”, the Montenegrin government has said.
Professor Thomas M. Kessler is the President of the non-profit organization Swiss Continence Foundation and Head of the Department of Neurology University, Balgrist Hospital, University of Zurich, Switzerland.
The wider co-operation between the Swiss and Montenegrin sides involve the creation of a diagnostic centre in the field of neurology and radiology, with the help of the Swiss Continence Foundation.
“The Centre would provide an attractive research in this area, with close cooperation with the University Hospital Balgrist, as well as the University of Zurich. In this way, excellent conditions, primarily for younger generations, would be enabled, using modern equipment, with the transfer of knowledge and techniques from renowned Swiss institutions, as well as through joint development research projects between Montenegro and Switzerland.”
Swiss experts will be in Montenegro on September 6, 2018, when they are expected to provide the Montenegrin side with a complete proposal and the actual budget necessary for the realisation of this medical project.
