Energy of Knowledge In 2016, Naftna Industrija Srbije became the first company to win the prestigious St. Sava Award for its contribution to education in Serbia. The award is given by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of the Government of the Republic of Serbia. NIS is recognised as a company that has helped improve the conditions of education in scientific institutions across our country through its investments made as part of the Energy of Knowledge corporate programme. As we pay special attention to young people joining our company and want to attract competent young experts, we have launched a major project entitled Energy of Knowledge. Partnership with educational and scientific institutions in Serbia and abroad is at the heart of this project so as to create highly qualified professionals trained to fit the requirements of NIS. The cooperation entails award of scholarships to top students, a programme of internship with the company, having professors recommend top students, potential employees/trainees; having NIS’ experts give presentations on the company and guest lectures; further professional training for company staff, knowledge broadening and implementation of joint science and research projects. The Energy of Knowledge also involves programmes of support to secondary school students in the form of organising and sponsoring competitions at all levels (school, municipality, region and country) and Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Russian Language Olympiads.
