University of Ljubljana
Founded in 1919, the University of Ljubljana is Slovenia’s foremost comprehensive university, comprising over 40,000 students.
The University of Ljubljana has been distinguished by outstanding funding successes in the sixth and seventh framework programmes. It is actively engaged in a number of flagship projects through the European Strategy Forum of Research Infrastructures, including the Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (DARIAH) and the European Social Survey (ESS-ERIC). The University has pioneered ground-breaking research, including the first empirical verification that the Zika virus causes damage to foetal brains, and a prototype of a regenerative elastocaloric heat pump, which can replace vapour compression-based cooling systems (developed with the Danish Technical University).
