Cooperation with the Industry
Faculty laboratories collaborate in research and development with Slovenian and foreign companies in various ways: they train PhD students from the economy, participate in centres of excellence, technology platforms and networks, and carry out R&D projects. Project cooperation is significantly facilitated by calls for tenders from ministries and agencies, which encourage joint candidacy or the involvement of complementary partners, either knowledge institutions or companies: in particular co-financing and partnership in ARIS applied projects and some calls from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (e.g. JR "RRI in value chains and networks"). In 2022, the faculty had about 210 different contracts with Slovenian and foreign companies. The scope of funding and the dynamics of implementation of market projects varied widely. Most projects last for at least one year, some for a few months and some for several years. Project cooperation with industry represents an important source of income for the Faculty.
