Fifteen different development, research, and educational institutions and more than twenty high technologically-focused companies participated in the second ‘Conjunction of Science and Business’ event at the 2017 MOS – International Trade and Business Fair in Celje, which took place on 12-17 September 2017.

The first 'Conjunction of Science and Business' event took place  last year and was organised by Janez Škrlec, Member of the Science and Technology Council, with the support of the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport (MIZŠ). This yearly event is a significant platform and opportunity for the promotion of Slovenian scientific work and an opportunity for closer cooperation between the scientific and business spheres.


This year's event was focused on micro-, bio- and nanotechnologies and on the development of the first Slovenian nanosatellite. At her visit of the exhibition on 15 September, Minister Maja Makovec Brenčič emphasized that our goal is to  attract young people with innovative ideas who are in need of our support. At the ministry, we intend to make this an annual event to be upgraded in the upcoming years. The exhibition received 2 gold awards and 1 silver award, and the Ministry of Education Science and Sport of the Republic of Slovenia received an additional award for their comprehensive presentation of high technological innovations.
