This report, one of a series of country studies on higher education and employment particularly in continuing professional education, contains two papers on recent developments in Yugoslavia. The first presents the findings of a study of continuing professional education at Belgrade University in Serbia and at Titograd University in Montenegro. Section I notes study methodology. Section II discusses the incentives and setbacks to continuing professional education. Section III discusses the efforts to determine the needs for professional continuing education and shows that at the two universities studied there is almost no research into educational needs of this type. Section IV reviews the variety of continuing professional education models. Section V examines problems of evaluation. Section VI covers non-university based continuing professional education. The second paper describes the continuing professional education of biochemical engineers in Yugoslavia. An opening section offers data on the faculties of technology at 18 universities. A following section discusses employment problems faced by biochemical engineers. A description of postgraduate continuous education covers types of programs available and participation rates. The remaining sections review problems of organization and suggest developmental trends in continuing professional education. (JB)
