The Commitee member, prof. Kristian Vlahoviček, PhD. (University of Zagreb, Faculty of Science) has declared positive and negative conflict of interest in relation to a number of project applicants and proposed his exclusion from selection process. Other members of the Committee unanimously accepted his proposal.
