Serbia says it will ask the United Nations to declare the birth date of scientist and inventor Nikola Tesla International Science Day.

In 2010 Serbia declared Tesla's birthday, July 10, as Science Day in Serbia with events drawing attention to Tesla's accomplishments, the news agency Tanjug reported.

Tesla was born in the region of Austria-Hungary that is today Croatia and built his career in the United States.

Best remembered for his many revolutionary developments in the field of electromagnetism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Tesla was an important figure in the early days of commercial electricity, whose patents and theoretical work formed the basis of modern alternating current electric power systems.

The events of Science Day in Serbia are intended to bring science closer to the people and show young generations interest in science can be beneficial, the Center for Promotion of Science said in a statement.

An exhibition dubbed De Revolutionibus traces the history of science back to 1500, the year of the beginning of the scientific revolution, the Serbian news agency Tanjug reported.
