The answers to the questions like: what institutional barriers prevent these organisations from engaging with their stakeholders to align research with society’s needs and how can these obstacles be overcome, will give the directions for the establishment of the first Embedded Nucleus in Serbia, being one out of 30 international NUCLEUS test sites.
