Jozef Stefan Institute Charity Profile
The Jožef Stefan Institute is the leading Slovenian scientific research institute, covering a broad spectrum of basic and applied research. The staff of more than 850 specializes in natural sciences, life sciences and engineering.
The subjects concern production and control technologies, communication and computer technologies, knowledge technologies, biotechnologies, new materials, environmental technologies, nanotechnologies, and nuclear engineering.
The mission of the Jožef Stefan Institute is the accumulation - and dissemination - of knowledge at the frontiers of natural science and technology to the benefit of society at large through the pursuit of education, learning, research, and development of high technology at the highest international levels of excellence. The Institute devotes a considerable amount of effort to transferring the results of its research and knowledge to productive applications and to the market. It was in this context that some years ago, the Technology Park was established at the Jožef Stefan Institute. This was the predecessor of the Ljubljana Technology Park, whose founders are the Institute, Helios, the Institute for Biology, IskraTEL, the Chemistry Institute, LEK, SKB Banka and the Technological Development Resource Centre. The Technology Park currently includes seven private companies, whose staff derive from the Institute's research staff and elsewhere. Their products, technologies and services have been developed within research or application projects over the past few years. The Park supports the creation and growth of new enterprises based on the results of research from Slovenian universities and international institutes. The Institute actively makes use of this support for hi-tech enterprises to create an environment in which innovation, financing and production interact to accelerate the cycle of development of innovative products.
