Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, University of Maribor (UM FKKT) hosted an important meeting under INSPIRE HEU Mission project on April 16th, 2024.

The meeting was attended by esteemed partners and collaborators, including prof. dr. Joydeep Dutta from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and CEO Kostja Klabjan from CleraOne company. Prof. dr. Dutta is the head of the Functional NanoMaterials Group in the Department of Applied Physics at KTH, which is a distinguished research institute, ranking among the top 100 universities worldwide in engineering, technology and natural sciences, and 7th among universities in the EU in the subject area of Engineering & Technology. The event served as a platform for in-depth discussions and strategic planning to drive research initiatives within INSPIRE.

The visit commenced with a warm welcome and a reception hosted by prof. dr. Zoran Novak, Dean of the Faculty, which provided a dignified setting for a day of stimulating discussion and knowledge sharing. Participants had the privilege of touring our state-of-the-art laboratories, gaining valuable first-hand insights into our research facilities and ongoing projects.
