UNESCO Chair for Entrepreneurial Studies (UCES) was established at the University of Novi Sad in 2006, as a part of UNITWIN programme with the aim to promote and encourage education, research and exchange of academic staff and to create a platform for information exchange in all the most important UNESCO activities.
UCES aims to become a centre of excellence in teaching and research in the field of entrepreneurship and tends to work on capacity building at different levels:
• Professional and personal development of both students and teachers (regional and international conferences, summer schools, workshops organized together with regional international partners in the field of entrepreneurship);
• Development and promotion of entrepreneurial culture among students and young staff as well as in the wider environment (organization of public lectures on entrepreneurship and other forms of lifelong learning at UNS;  workshops, seminars, conferences, training organized together with chambers of commerce, NGOs and other stakeholders; publications, textbooks and different materials for entrepreneurship promotion);
• Investment in educational and research resources (from infrastructure to teaching / learning materials, databases, softwares, books, journals);
• Development of career guidance services for students;
• Enhancement of the university - alumni relationships by involving alumni in teaching and research projects as learning resource (through shared experience and good practice) as well as funding source (based on a “giving back” approach).
UCES has the support of the Serbian National Commission for UNESCO. 
Together with the UNESCO Chair for Entrepreneurship Studies at the University “J.J.Strossmayer” in Osijek, Croatia, UCES is the only Chair of that kind in the region of South - East Europe.
UCES also became a part of European network of UNESCO Chairs in Entrepreneurship under the leadership of the UNESCO Chair on Entrepreneurship and Intercultural Management at the University of Applied Sciences in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. Presently there are 634 UNESCO chairs in different fields of activities.
