“EIT Manufacturing RIS HUB in Slovenia is pursuing the knowledge triangle – Community, Innovation, Education. At the Jožef Stefan Institute, we run the Cluster FoF, which is strongly linked to the RIS HUB activities. We strive for collaboration and knowledge exchange among industry professionals, academic institutions, and research centres. By bringing together a diverse range of stakeholders, we are trying to create a vibrant ecosystem where ideas flourish and transformative solutions emerge. We organise different events, workshops for SMEs and Mid Cups, focused on the green transition and digital transformation of Slovenian industry. One of the more high-profile events was the Innovation Day Ljubljana, which we hope will become a traditional annual event.”
