(E) Croatian surgeons need help
From:feldwoj2@SLU.EDU (Judy Feldworth) (Nenad Bach) 
Dear All, 
Here's a problem I would like some insight on from my fellow Croatians . . . 
I work with an internationally recognized surgeon who is now collaborating (or trying to) with prominent Croatian surgeons in Zagreb. The Croatian surgeons want him to work on a number of projects with them, attend meetings on the Adriatic coast, and speak. When he diplomatically writes to them inquiring about funding for the trips, he receives no answer. (Well, that's typical.) The surgeons talk about everything else but NEVER address the issue of funding, if it is available, where it will come from, etc. Frankly, I am sure that the people in Croatia are waiting for him to pay his own way and that is not going to happen. Anyway, he finds this extremely frustrating and doesn't know what to do, say, or how to handle this situation. 
Personally, I find this extremely rude and very unprofessional behavior on the part of the Croatian surgeons. Educated Croatians are not stupid. They know the USA is not paved with gold and that we, too, have to pay our bills. And, when you invite someone to your country to offer his professional services for your benefit, you don't duck around the issue of how they are going to get there. 
Any suggestions?
