My PhD research proposal is called „Analysis of renewable energy sources development“ (with special accent on finance and microeconomic analysis).  I have studied at „Wirtschaft Universität“ for one academic year. In 2010 I was awarded a scholarship by business club „Privrednik“ of Serbia, for outstanding academic results. Since year 2013 I am a teaching assistant for scientific field „Business economics and macroeconomics“ at the Faculty of Organizational Sciences, University in Belgrade.

During the Sylff fellowship program I carried out research project entitled “Economic efficiency and instruments of renewable energy system integration in the Republic of Serbia – based on the knowledge from the energy system in Japan”. Practical correlation data between energy systems of Japan and Serbia have been showed. Numerous examples where energy system of the Republic of Serbia could improve its regulatory instruments and economic efficiency based on the lessons learned from Japan are investigated. This proposed project is in light of my first project for Sylff, with special emphasis on broadening the scope of research and modelling energy systems with high complexity. My project activities consisted out of data collecting, academic literature analysis, econometric energy modelling, collaboration with renowned experts, and collaboration with colleagues from Japan etc.
