Excellence Award
Hemofarm Foundation has established the Excellence Award as of 2018, and it will be awarded each year for outstanding achievements in the field of health, education, and culture. The award – a crane-shaped statuette, symbolises persistence and permanence and represents support to the ideas and projects which change the society for the better.
The first Excellence Award went to Vigor Majić, Director of Petnica Research Centre.
