ZRS Koper celebration week

During the celebration week of the Koper Science and Research Centre (ZRS Koper), we kindly invite you to the following events:


The Science and Research Centre Koper (ZRS Koper) is organizing the 16th traditional award ceremony of ZRS Koper – AWARDS OF SCIENCE 2021, which will take place on Friday, June 11, 2021, at 11 am, in the Kamin Restaurant, Belvedere Hotels, Dobrava 1a , Izola.

The keynote speaker at this year’s event will be dr. Jože Podgoršek, Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Food of the Republic of Slovenia.

Every 2 years, at the beginning of June, ZRS Koper organizes the traditional awarding of prizes and recognitions for excellent scientific achievements of ZRS Koper – “Glasnik znanosti”. With the event we want to present our scientific research work and reward researchers who achieve excellence in scientific work. At the same time, we also want to promote and bring science closer to the general public.

This year we are recording the fifth year of operation as an independent public research institute and the twenty-seventh year since the establishment of the first and still the only public research institute based outside Ljubljana, which fulfills its mission at the local, national and international levels. ZRS Koper, as a multidisciplinary public research institute, operates in the fields of humanities, social sciences and natural sciences.

This year’s recipients of the Glasnik znanosti ZRS Koper award are:

On this occasion, the newly published publication Glasnik ZRS Koper – Report on the work of the Science and Research Centre Koper for 2020 will be presented.


After the morning program – awarding of prizes and recognitions – we will continue socializing at the same location, at 2 pm with a round table organized by ZRS Koper on the topic:
