The Society for Electronics, Telecommunications, Computing, Automatics and Nuclear engineering (ETRAN) of Serbia is registered as a volontary, non-partisan, non-governmental, non-profit organization of experts in the field of electrical engineering and connected fields.
The Society is the lawful successor of the Yugoslav Association for Electronics, Telecommunications, Automatics and Nuclear engineering (ETAN) originated in June, 1953.
The ETRAN Society Secretariat is located in Belgrade 11000, Kneza Miloša 9, IV floor.
The goals of the ETRAN are:
- Promotion of creative work in the fields of electronics, telecommunications, computers, automation, nuclear engineering and connected fields
- Planning and implementation of scientific and expert development in pertinent fields
- Advancement of modern technologies and their application
- Organization of cooperation among universities, research organizations and industry connected with planning the industrial development and higher education
- Work in the fields of projects, standards and technical norms
- Organization of domestic and international science and expert meetings, exhibitions and debates in the pertinent fields
- Technical preparation and publishing of proceedings, journals and other publications in pertinent fields
- Cooperation with similar societies in the country, with similar national societies in other countries and with international societies pertinent to activities of ETRAN
