Scientific work at TIB Balkan is based on teamwork. We unite different disciplines, without which a forward-looking development of our research would not be possible. These disciplines are: Byzantine Studies, Historical Geography, History, Southeast European Studies, Classical Philology, Archaeology, Software Development and Database Management. Only in the interaction of all these fields can the established methodology of the Long-Term Project TIB be successfully guided through the 21st century. Our team and its head Mihailo St. Popović attach great importance to scientific qualification and enthusiasm for the TIB Balkans and its subprojects, collegiality, discussion, academic development and promotion of young scientists, which is reflected in the biographies of the acting persons.
