PP5 - UNG - Univerza v Novi Gorici


UNG is an independent, research oriented and student friendly university. A predecessor of the University of Nova Gorica was the Faculty of Environmental Sciences founded in September 1995. Since its creation, UNG has systematically developed its research character, hence all of its fully employed university teachers are above all top-level researchers. UNG offers education at seven schools in undergraduate, second and third programs. The research is conducted in six laboratories (Environmental Research, Astroparticle Physics, Organic Matter Physics, Multiphase Processes, Materals Research, and Quantum Optics) and five research centers (Atmospheric Research, Systems and Information Technologies, Wine Research, Research Center for Humanities, and Biomedical Sciences and Engineering). The Laboratory for Environmental Research (LRO) is currently involved in Innovaqua project.
