Industrial Cooperation

The Faculty laboratories are developing various forms of R&D cooperation with Slovenian industry: education of young researchers from the business sector, participation in centres of excellence, centres of competence, technology platforms and networks, and implementation of R&D projects. Project-based cooperation is facilitated by public calls published by ministries and public agencies, which encourage joint applications, partnerships on applied projects, and the involvement of complementary partners, whether institutions of knowledge or businesses. In 2014, the Faculty had 120 different contracts with Slovenian and foreign companies, amounting to a total of EUR 3.16 million, of which EUR 2.95 million was with Slovenian partners and EUR 215 thousand was with foreign partners. The level of funding and the implementation dynamic of market projects vary a great deal. Smaller projects with a value of around ten thousand euros prevail (approx. one half), while other projects exceed one hundred thousand euros in value. Most projects last for at least one year, but some have a duration of only a few months while others continue for several years. Project work in conjunction with industry is an important source of income for the Faculty.
