About the presentation

On Tuesday, November 6th with the informal gathering and the first meeting of the participants, the fourth cycle of Nelt education program has officially begun.

This year, a very large number of highly motivated and inspired students from over 20 faculties, with very diferent backgrounds and interests have applied, so the jury of the Nelt education program: Marko Milanković (Nelt), Milica Pekić (G12Hub), Nana Radenković (Nova Iskra), Luna Stevanović and Bojan Ćirović (contestants of the NEP3 program), had a very though decision to make in choosing who is going to be a part of this fourth generation of the program.

However, after series of interviews with the potential participants, the jury created a multidisciplinary group that will make the fourth generation of NEP.

Nelt Educational Program is a one-year, interdisciplinary, educational, experimental program aimed at students from different faculties and based on the principles of collaboration, teamwork, dialogue, exchange and connection of the knowledge, skills and capacities.

NELT Company organizes the third cycle of the NELT Educational Program aimed at students, in a collaboration with Nova Iskra and Gallery 12 Hub. Within the third cycle of NEP, 27 selected students will have an opportunity to develop their practical skills from the field of creativity and entrepreneurship, but also to spread their views about critical thinking, teamwork, project development. From economy and entrepreneurship, critical theory, activism and cultural management to dramatic arts, design and new technologies, students went through a unique experience which this year takes place under the slogan THE OTHER SIDE OF KNOWLEDGE!
