    How to get from Slavija square to the venue
    The Rectorate building is located at one of the central city squares, Studentski trg (Students square). You can take the bus 31 or 29A, or minibus E9 from Slavija square to Terazije, and then it is a 5 minute walk through the pedestiran zone - Knez Mihailova street, to get to Studentski trg. The price for the ticket is 150 RSD (1.2 EUR) if bought on the bus, and just 89 RSD (0.7 EUR) if bought at the newspaper stand.

    Local Bus 72

    There is also a local bus line, number 72, takes approx. 40 minutes. It takes you to Zeleni Venac in the center of Belgrade, from where you can walk to the venue at Students square. The bus departs every half an hour from 4 AM to 11:40 PM. The price for the ticket is 150 RSD (1.2 EUR) if bought on the bus, and just 89 RSD (0.7 EUR) if bought at the newspaper stand.

    Make sure you have local currency, Serbian dinars, because other currencies are not accepted (there are exchange offices and ATMs at the airport that are open 24/7).


    The easiest and safest way to get a taxi at the airport is to go to the Taxi info desk that is located in the baggage claim area, and the staff will order you a taxi and tell you the exact price for your destination. The price is 10-15 EUR for all destinations in the wider city center area.

    MiPsociety and MitoEAGLE

    • The MitoEAGLE network aims to improve our knowledge on mitochondrial function in health and disease related to Evolution, Age, Gender, Lifestyle and Environment. Every study of mitochondrial (mt) function and disease is faced with EAGLE as the essential background conditions characterizing the individual patient, subject, study group, species, tissue or even cell line.
    Membership in the MitoEAGLE network is open to all researchers sharing an interest in mitochondrial research and medicine
    » Join the COST Action CA15203 MITOEAGLE

    • The MiPsociety is an international organization, based in Europe and operating world-wide and has become a legal body in 2011 continuing a tradition of rigorous mitochondrial bioenergetics; integrating molecular, cellular and organismic physiology and pathology.
    Membership is open to all researchers
