Consultation: Wednesday, 12 – 14 h
Dr. Goran Milić was born in 1976 in Ivanjica (Serbia), where he finished elementary school and high school. He graduated in 2001 and received his master’s degree in 2006 at the Faculty of Forestry, University of Belgrade. He defended his doctoral dissertation in 2011 at the same faculty, where he was elected to all academic titles from teaching assistant to associate professor.
Dr. Milić was a member of the commission for evaluation and defense of 3 doctoral dissertations and a mentor of a large number of graduate, final and master’s theses. He is a member of the publishing council of the journal “Drvotehnika” and a member of the editorial board of the international scientific journal SEEFOR. He is a member of the scientific committees of international conferences in Sopron (Hardwood Conference 2020) and Ohrid (2017, 2019). Dr. Milić has organized and moderated several international conferences at the Faculty of Forestry, within the international projects ID:WOOD and FORESDA. He was the organiser of the Final conference COST FP1407 ModWoodLife, which was held at the Faculty of Forestry in 2018 (more than 30 countries, 90 participants), and the editor of the proceedings. He participated in the implementation of a number of national and international projects (ID:WOOD, FORESDA, bilateral projects, 4 COST actions…). Dr. Milić enhanced his scientific skills in Austria (Muelboeck Company; Salzburg University of Applied Sciences), Germany (Johann Heinrich von Thünen Institute (former BFH), Hamburg), Finland (Luke Institute, Helsinki). As part of the Erasmus+ program, he was a visiting professor in Slovenia (InnoRenew Institute, Koper (2018)) and Austria (Salzburg University of Applied Sciences (2019)). He is a visiting professor at the Faculty of Forestry, University of Banja Luka and the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Zenica (Bosnia and Herzegovina).
The area of his research is primary wood processing, especially hydrothermal wood treatments (drying, steaming, thermal modification). Dr. Milić has published more than 50 scientific and professional papers, including 7 papers in the most influential international journals (M21 category). Moreover, he is a reviewer in some of the most important wood science journals. He has done several studies and projects for the needs of companies in the field of wood technologies and is a consultant for two large wood industry companies. Since 2008, he has been holding Wood drying courses at the Faculty of Forestry and in wood industry companies. Dr. Milić is a member of several international organizations and a court expert in the field of wood technology.
