History
of CROSS

The Croatian Student Summit is already a part of our Faculty’s tradition, celebrating its fourteenth anniversary this year. It all started in the fall of 2004, when a group of enthusiasts infatuated with medicine and science decided to improve the students’ standard by organizing a rather demanding project aimed at giving young scientists a chance to present their work. The Congress takes place at the University of Zagreb, School of Medicine and has received its support from the very beginning. The altruistic assistance of a number of professors and the diligent work of a group of students allowed the project to come to life. In order to achieve international level and to allow other countries from the region and the world to participate, the Congress is held in English language. From the very first CROSS, our colleagues from Hungary, Italy, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Poland, Bulgaria, Scotland, the USA and many other countries have recognized the big potential of the project. With every year, the number of international delegates participating at the Congress increases.

We are proud of our long tradition. Throughout the years, many topics were a part of our Congress. We have provided an opportunity for students and young scientists to present their achievements and share their work with their colleagues. At the University of Zagreb School of Medicine, we encourage scientific research, co-operation and exchange of ideas. Each year we try to improve the Congress – make it more competitive and interesting. Our continuity, numerous awards and an increasing number of participants are the best indicator that we are on the right track. This Congress shows that students with desire, willingness and commitment can play a significant role in the scientific world. We are proud of the names that have led CROSS all these years and that have left a mark on our School of Medicine. We are grateful for their contribution in promoting scientific student activities and events. Vision and enthusiasm led to the fact that the Croatian Student Summit has become an indispensable scientific event in Croatia, recognized in Europe and the world.
