July 8, 2021

Today, we hosted Prof. Dr. Boštjan Zalar, Director of the “Jožef Stefan” Institute, on a visit to the University of Nova Gorica.

The guest was welcomed by the Rector of the University of Nova Gorica, Prof. Dr. Danilo Zavrtanik, and the Vice-Rectors, Prof. Dr. Gvido Bratina and Prof. Dr. Mladen Franko, who presented the pedagogical and research work of the University of Nova Gorica to our guest.

During the meeting, Prof. Dr. Zalar also visited the Laboratory for Environmental and Life Sciences in Rožna Dolina, the laboratories and centres at the University Centre in Ajdovščina, and the Wine Research Centre at the Lanthieri Mansion in Vipava.

At the end of the visit, both the Rector and the Director praised the long-standing good cooperation between the institutions, which started in 1995 when the “Jožef Stefan” Institute, together with the Municipality of Nova Gorica, established the School of Environmental Sciences (the predecessor of the Polytechnic or the University of Nova Gorica). During the meeting, both sides identified a number of new opportunities to deepen cooperation on joint projects in the future.
