Croatian Biophysical Society was founded in 1980 as a branch of Yugoslav Biophysical Society. It got the status of a public legal body and was registered as a public organization at the Ministry of Justice in 1991. In 1993 the Society joined the international associations IUPAB (International Union for Pure and Applied Biophysics) and EBSA (European Biophysical Societies Association).
Biophysics in Croatia has a remarkable history, established by a series of events since 1966 (Iz povijesti drustva, an article by Dr. Jasminka Brnjas-Kraljevic).
The aims of the Society are promotion and development of biophysical sciences, of biophysical education, of applying biophysics in other scientific fields and professions, as well as improving the reputation and social significance of biophysics and biophysicists. The aims are being accomplished by a range of activities (Aktivnosti društva.pdf, an article by Dr. Dubravka Krilov).
- stimulating and supporting scientific and educational activities associated with biophysics
- financial support to students participation at international scientific meetings
- general and specific popularization of biophysics
The activities of the society are being carried out at meetings, workshops, lectures, by publishing, co-organization of International School of Biophysics, collaboration with other associations, institutions and trade associations.
Members of the society are individuals involved with biophysics on a level of scientific research or educational work, as well as students, other individuals and legal bodies whose activities are related to biophysics.
