Aleksandar Jovanovic has been active as an engineer and researcher in industry, research and teaching since 1977 (EU, Japan, USA). He has worked at the University of Stuttgart since 1987, where he has managed over 30 large projects for the EU and industry (e.g. in the areas of risk management and “intelligent” software systems or data mining, fuzzy systems, decision support systems, intelligent agent models). Parallel to this, he was also a member of the EU Commission in Brussels as seconded national expert and contractual agent (Directorate-General for Research). He is currently CEO of the European Institute for Integrated Risk Management EU-VRi ( He has also worked at the Universities of Milan (Politecnico), Stuttgart, La Jolla (USA, UCSD), Paris (École Polytechnique), Zagreb and Novi Sad as a lecturer and professor.
