Between 28 and 30 May 2024, the "Computers in Scientific Discoveries (CSD10)" conference took place at the University of Leuven in Belgium, bringing together researchers from the fields of mathematics, computer science, chemistry, and graph theory the 10th edition of this conference.

The successfully concluded traditional conference TRIPLE i: Intuition, Imagination, Innovation in Suicidology, organized for the 15th year by the Slovenian Center for Suicide Research (SCSR) at the University of Primorska, Andrej Marušič Institute (UP IAM). The event, held in memory of the late Prof. Andrej Marušič around the time of his birthday, aims to promote intuition, imagination, and innovation in suicide research and prevention.


The International Conference InnoRenew CoE 2024 (IRIC2024) invites submissions of abstracts and active participation at the conference until 24 May 2024.

The University of Primorska, in cooperation with the University of Trieste, is organizing a T4EU Week (Transfor4Europe Week: Beyond Borders), from 20 to 24 May 2024. The main goal of the event is networking, exchange of views, experiences, knowledge and cooperation between students and staff from all 11 partner universities.

The University of Primorska (UP) is a medium-sized, internationally engaged university with 5,745 students, of whom 1,122 (or 19.5%) come from 39 foreign countries. It has 730 staff. The UP has 480 researchers and higher education teachers, of whom 59 (or 12.3%) come from abroad. The UP hosts more than 200 international researchers every year and enrols 190 PhD students.

The NEB Academy, a flagship initiative of the European Commission, has set out to accelerate the up- and re-skilling of architecture, construction, and engineering (ACE) professionals and adjacent actors. Through a network of training hubs across Europe that bundle regional competencies and facilitate access to contents on sustainability, circularity and bio-based material knowledges. A strong partnership of universities, regional training centres, authorities and EU associations has kicked of the NEBA Alliance to co-create this novel platform for the construction sector.

The University of Primorska is looking for a student to support us in the project management of the NEBA Alliance project, which is coordinated by the University of Primorska and formally implemented at the Andrej Marušič Institute.

The Departments of Mathematics of the Faculty of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Information Technologies (FAMNIT) and Andrej Marušič Institute (IAM) of the University of Primorska, are seeking a top early-career researcher for a postdoctoral position in the area of structural and algorithmic graph theory, in connection with a research grant of Prof. dr. Martin Milanič, "Beyond Sparsity: Graph Classes and Width Parameters" funded by the Slovenian Research and Innovation Agency.

WINGS FOR LIFE group run with UP

For several years now, the first Sunday in May (5 May) has been marked by the Wings for life run, which takes place in three ways - at a larger event, where runners are chased by a pursuit vehicle (this will be in Ljubljana) or with an app. This can be used by anyone who is going to run on Sunday at 13:00, or you can join one of the "app runs" organised by the app, where you are chased by a virtual car. This year, for the second time, this type of run will take place by the sea, organised by Sport UP, which is responsible for the recreation of students and staff at the University of Primorska. We will run from the building of the UP FTŠ Turistica to the last pier of the Portorož beach (short run, turning point after 2 km), to Seče (medium run, 4.4 km one way) or to the Sečovlje Salt Pans (8 km). This year our event is also supported by Radio Capris.

This kind of reflection is not limited to round anniversaries, however, but also spurs us on, which is why the name for Wednesday's employee activities has been kept. We would like to thank all those who have made the effort to organise sports, educational and cultural activities, based on the wishes expressed in the employee surveys, for the beautiful act of building good and collegial relations.

The University of Primorska has published a Call for Young Researchers who will be trained over the next four years in a research and study programme. Each young researcher will carry out a research project under supervision, which will be structured within the framework of the specific research programme.

In 2024, there are four positions open for young researchers, with two positions available at UP IAM.

The European Commission selected the research institute InnoRenew CoE, out of 530 applications, as one of the finalists for the New European Bauhaus Prizes 2024. Today the public voting for the prizes started.

The application prepared by InnoRenew CoE experts stood out from over 530 applications for its quality, alignment with NEB values and principles, and potential to promote beauty, sustainability, and inclusion.

The research team of the Slovenian Centre for Suicide Research UP IAM has once again succeeded in securing a new project. In the period 2024-2026, the centre's researchers will implement the MentBox project - Modular Mental Health Toolbox, funded under the EU4Health programme of the European Commission.

University of Primorska's researchers attended the kick off meeting of the LIFE BE-WoodEN – Buildings and Education in Wood Ecosystem for the New European Bauhaus project. It was held 27-28 February 2024 in Genoa, Italy.
