The 4PETHABECO project aims to preserve the populations of large carnivores by testing innovative solutions for their protection and restoration of their habitats, especially through the strengthening of green infrastructure, the reduction of coexistence conflicts and the improvement of connectivity. The specific objectives of the 4PETHABECO project are: reinforcement of collaboration inside Adriatic-Ionian area to foster synergies and harmonization of large carnivores’ monitoring procedures and techniques, increase transparency of data acquisition and interpretation, dealing with increasing challenges regarding the conflicts related to populations of large carnivores and human coexistence, by improving participatory processes for innovative management of large carnivores’ habitats, creating a knowledge base and an interactive platform of the Adriatic-Ionian area for solving coexistence conflicts, improving the understanding of the cultural, social and environmental diversity of the area. The long-term effects of the project, conservation of large carnivores and the improvement of their resilience, will be ensured through the co-creation of joint strategies and action plans of the Adriatic-Ionian area for the joint management of large carnivore populations, the protection and increase of their terrestrial habitats and their connectivity, which will also enable the implementation of the objectives of the EUSAIR cross-border flagship PET HAB ECO.


To ensure a high level of food safety throughout production and distribution, it is crucial to improve and harmonise analytical techniques for contaminant quantification. This constitutes the basis for reliable data regarding food product compliance with regulations and for resolving disputes and minimising financial losses within the food industry. The project will develop reference methods and reference materials for quantifying contaminants in both food and food packaging, with a specific emphasis on recycled materials. These metrological tools will aid industries in guaranteeing the delivery of safe food and sustainable packaging while adhering to regulatory requirements.

Slovenhood Dimensions between Local and Global at the Beginning of the Third Millennium

The key goal of our research is a deeper understanding of Slovenhood, which will deviate from the traditional concept of national identity, while at the same time allowing its status and existence.

Kinesiology for Quality of Life

With evolution and technological development, we have begun to neglect one of the basic biological needs - exercise - and have forgotten the important role it plays and the impact it has on our health and function. The general lack of physical activity (PA), the ageing of the population, the earlier onset of degenerative processes, a sedentary lifestyle, an unbalanced diet, environmental and ergonomic influences and extreme workloads are all factors that have a direct impact on an individual’s performance and quality of life.

The Mediterranean and Slovenia

The research programme The Mediterranean and Slovenia draws its scientific potential from a specifically structured milieu that emerged at the intersection between the Adriatic and Central Europe, and which from a historiographic viewpoint highlights the contiguity, and the borderland and interactive character of the Slovenian Mediterranean region.

Constructive Theology in the Age of Digital Culture and Anthropocene

The X-BRAIN.net project addresses a common health challenge of the Programme Area in relation to the development and improvement of research and innovation capacity and the introduction of new technologies in hospitals in the Programme Area. Post-stroke patients occupy 15% of the capacity of health facilities in the Programme Area. Starting post-stroke rehabilitation as early as possible is crucial. In addition, bilingualism is an important factor and therefore cross-border cooperation between institutions is essential to provide quality health care in a bilingual area.
