Award is given “in recognition of distinguished contribution to international karst-hydrogeological research, and to establish cooperation between the Serbian and Hungarian geological societies, and to strengthen scientific bilateral relationship”. Award to Prof. Stevanović is given at the ceremony in Hungarian Geological Institute (Magyar Állami Földtani Intézet – MAFI) in Budapest on 16 April 2018, when he delivered the inaugural speech and lecture „Karst Aquifer as a Global Water Source - Challenges and Opportunities“. In his words the Chairman of the session Prof. Janos Szanyi and Prof. Stevanović emphasised that award is additional sign of long-term successful cooperation of geologists of the two countries. There are still space and demands to strengthen bilateral cooperation of the two societies and implementation of common projects.
