The Unveiling of the SGS Memorial Plaque at the Rectorate of the University of Belgrade
On 21 October 2016, as part of the celebration of 125 years of the foundation of our Society, a solemn gathering was organised at the Rectorate of the University of Belgrade and a memorial plaque was unveiled in the courtyard of Captain Miša's Building. The idea of putting up a memorial plaque at the site where the Geological Survey of the Higher School, and later of the University, operated since its founding in 1880 until it moved to a new building in 1952, and where the Serbian Geological Society was founded in 1891, has long been present among our members but unfortunately could not be realised until the present.
