The KONČAR Day and the 97th anniversary of the company were celebrated today at the Končar headquarters.
Under the slogan “an investment in people is the best investment”, the traditional “KONČAR Award” was presented to the best students of the Zagreb University of Applied Sciences. The Award was established in April 2003 and it is presented to the most successful students of Electrical Engineering, Computing, Information Technologies and Mechatronics at the Zagreb University of Applied Sciences during the previous academic year. This year a total of ten students received the Award.
As part of the KONČAR Day, a donation is also made to an educational, cultural, scientific or social cause. This year a donation was made to Matrix Croatica to support and enable the publishing of seven volumes of the History of Croats. This project is based on the latest cognitive, conceptual and methodological achievements of the Croatian historiography and is conducted at the same level as similar historiography projects of other European nations.
Matrix Croatica is one of the oldest Croatian cultural institutions and among the largest and most important book and magazine publishers in Croatia.
