sions involving representatives of the academies at international meetings, a formal bilateral meeting involving the Serbian Academy has not been held in recent years. There simply has not been funding to support a cooperative project that would call for such a meeting.

SCOPE OF THE ACTIVITIES OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMIES

Against this background, this report addresses some of the activities that followed the signing of the interacademy agreements. Also, other types of activities that were supported by the NAS and then the National Academies as the political landscape in the region and interests of funding sources changed are considered. Chapter 2 discusses exchanges of individual scientists, initially within the framework of the agreements and then beginning in the early 1990s through other means that built on the experience of the exchange agreements. Chapter 3 is devoted to a discussion of the many bilateral interacademy workshops that were carried out beginning in the 1980s and continuing to the present time. Chapter 4 describes a variety of other activities beyond individual exchanges and workshops that expanded the program with counterparts in the region. Recommendations concerning future activities are then presented in Chapter 5.
