Welcome to the homepage of the Croatian Academic Association!
The Croatian Academic Association is a non-profit organisation based in Germany that gathers Croatian and Croatian-German university graduates in a country-wide network. Our goal is to maintain and nurture our Croatian heritage ranging from culture and language to education and science. Furthermore, we are promoting the cultural exchange between Germany and Croatia.
One of our main objectives is to provide a countrywide network for second generation Croatian university students and graduates in Germany but also to establish and nurture contacts to students and university graduates in Croatia.
The Croatian Academic Association is the only institution of this kind in Germany and we organise lectures, discussions, book promotions, concerts, and many other activities.
The most important event is the annual meeting called “SUSRET“ which traditionally takes place on the Whitweekend and dates back to 1970. “SUSRET“ is the Croatian word for gathering or get-together and the event as such gives young Croats from all over Germany the opportunity to meet on a regular basis, to attend lectures on various topics, to participate in discussions or simply to get to know each other.
