Industrial Liaison Office

Services for companies

We offer companies an innovative knowledge services, laboratory facilities, and patents. We also offer both existing solutions and possibilities of finding new, proprietary solutions. Common drawings on funds give you/us an opportunity to get a part of development funds.

Possibilities for cooperation

Knowledge – patents
We have a lot of knowledge and experience from which have risen the existing developments, patents of commercial value, which we are ready to offer on the market or to construct a new inventions or patents.

Cost optimization
Research and development of more efficient materials. Optimizing and reducing energy consumption. Modelling and optimization of the processes.

Professional staff
Many eminent researchers can supplement your development capacities. Your development team can work in our research groups.

Enhancing the reputation
Working with an eminent institution allows you to enhance reputation and keeps you up to date with prospective technologies and new developments.

Research, measurement, analysis and services
Measurements of the electrical conductivity of metal, thin films and semiconductors. Characterization of surfaces. Research and analysis of nanomaterials and environmental materials. Analysis in winemaking and viticulture.

Participation in the development and innovation
Participate in the development of new products and services. We suggest and advise companies how to optimize of production processes. With the knowledge and cooperation we can establish the development of new innovations.

Modern laboratories
Laboratory facilities, which complement each other and are built on going exploration, allow you/us expanded research and in most cases the final solution for splicing research.

UNG as a link
University of Nova Gorica as a link for Slovenian industry to obtain fundings for research and development from the European Union and from the Slovenian Development Funds. Overall performance of the calls can give us greater possibility of drawing development resources.

Areas of research


Synthesis and characterization of inorganic materials and polymers for electronic applications. Analysis and research materials: photocatalytic, multiferroics and electrocaloric. Numerical modeling of many processes of metal, plastic and ceramic materials and their composites.


We perform basic and applicable researches in various fields of environmental sciences. Analyses with the use of lasers. Organic matter in the environment: monitoring, transformation and effects. Materials for photocatalysis and environmental applications. Sustainable use and protection of natural resources.

Science of living nature

Research activities related to the fields of viticulture, enology. We want to develop new solutions to improve the quality of the aging process by combining modern technologies in biomedicine and nano-engineering.


Using the physics we try to understand the nature. We have a lot of experience in the field of conducting and semiconducting layers, surfaces, polymers, probing dust particles measuring electro-optic phenomena in nano-second precision GPS synchronization.

Information Technology

Information technologies for support of activities in medicine, public health system and environmental sciences, theory of systems and control, design and optimisation of systems and operations.


Our research falls into two main streams: literary studies and cognitive science, with focus on formal linguistics.
