Alpine Europe Summer School students visit the InnoRenew CoE

The University of Primorska (UP) and Oregon State University (Oregon, USA) have organized the Alpine Europe Summer School every two years since 2015.

This year, 16 students from Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Czech Republic, India, Kazakhstan and the USA are visiting Slovenia and northern Italy. They will tour several companies, research institutions and sites to explore sustainability and the built environment, following the value chain from the forest all the way through to design, manufacture and construction.

On Friday, 21 June 2019, the Alpine Europe Summer School students visited the University of Primorska and the InnoRenew CoE.

Dr Andreja Kutnar, the InnoRenew CoE director, presented the institute’s research work, projects and commitment to transfer knowledge to a new generation of researchers. Her presentation was followed by Aleš Oven, assistant researcher at the InnoRenew CoE and head of the International Office at UP’s Faculty of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Information Technologies (UP FAMNIT), who shared information about Slovenia, UP and UP FAMNIT with the students.

Hana Remešová from the Czech Republic and Nikolina Lolić from Bosnia and Herzegovina, two of UP FAMNIT’s visiting students attending Alpine Europe Summer School, closed the event with presentations about the educational and research systems in their home countries.

The InnoRenew CoE is happy to collaborate and looks forward to the next edition of Alpine Europe Summer School.
