He, as a nuclear physicist of the Institute in Vinča, started research back in the seventies of the last century about the technological implementation of the solar energy and became one of the pioneers of the exploration of the technological implementation of alternative sources of energy, which took Serbian science in this field into the very world summit of innovativeness. Parallel with the exhibition of the great results of the scientific work of Branko Lalović, the book speaks about the resentments he faced and the strange changes in his life. It can be read also as the chronicle of Serbian science in those days in the shadow of the conflict between the promotion of nuclear or solar energy. In such a way, the book authentically brings to life the memory of the importance of the scientific work of  Branko Lalović, one of the forgotten great men and simultaneously opens many current issues about the energetic problem turning point that the World faces today. It is a pleasure, bearing in mind its public importance, to join in the applause for the award for creativity of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), in the hope that with the award he will realize his mission with even more force.

Authors of the invention contributed to the ecological and energetically efficient solution in the field of bee keeping whose application would reduce the price of bee  products, that would become more accessible to a greater number of people.
