The first SDIR Scientific Days event was held on September 20, 2022, at the State University of Novi Pazar, Serbia, and streamed online. This new initiative of the Executive Committee of SDIR is envisioned to become traditional and enable the promotion of SDIR activities and strengthening of cooperation among cancer research centers in Serbia. The meeting was very successful and has sparked a vivid interest among members in various cities in Serbia to host the next event, that is expected in 2023. The meeting announcements, as well as the in-person interaction between SDIR Executive Committee members and cancer researchers led to an increase in new SDIR membership applications and their active involvement in the future development of SDIR.
