Feb. 25, 2015

On Wednesday, 25 February, 2015, the Rector of the University of Nova Gorica, Prof. Dr. Danilo Zavrtanik and Dr. Elisabetta Kovic, the headmaster of the Humanistic and Scientific Lyceum »S. Gregorčič” and the Classical Lyceum »P. Trubar« (the Slovene lyceum in Gorizia) signed an agreement on mutual collaboration.

The signing of the agreement between these educational institutions on both sides of the Slovene/Italian border is a result of a mutual desire for closer collaboration in the areas of natural sciences, technical subjects, humanities, and arts. The University of Nova Gorica has built strong relations with selected partner grammar schools in the past years. This is the first example of partnership with an institution on the other side of the border; the partnership was initiated by the School of Environmental Sciences and also by a very strong interest of the Slovene lyceum’s section in Gorizia. The establishment of the partnership with the Slovene lyceum’s section in Gorizia is geared towards organizing of lectures, practical training, science workshops and other events for high school students that our university can offer.
The high school students from our partner school will have a chance to participate in various educational, scientific, and social events that are organized by the University of Nova Gorica. At the same time, the University will make it possible for the lyceum’s staff to gain deeper professional experience by attending lectures and seminars. This way, the University will also get access to their way of viewing study programs and this can certainly improve the quality of higher or tertiary education.

The University of Nova Gorica and the Slovene Lyceum’s section in Gorizia are both looking forward to mutual collaboration and promotion of scientific and research activities that are intended to help high school students gain new knowledge and experience. This collaboration will also make it possible for high school students to make a sensible decision as to their study choice and later on their profession. The doors at the university which is closest to them are wide open for them and along with that, a multitude of possibilities as their future is concerned.
