The recognitions went to 16 associates who were welcomed at the event by the Rector of the University of Ljubljana Prof. Dr. Igor Papič and by the Secretary-General of the University Mihaela Bauman Podojsteršek.

In his speech Rector Prof. Dr. Igor Papič highlighted the meaning of the work of expert services, which raises the reputation and contributes to the excellence of the University: “We honour your contribution to the organization, management and care for efficient work at the Rectorate, in the integration with foreign universities and international organizations, in project management, the career development of students, in numerous administrative and legal procedures, in communicating with the public and in technical maintenance solutions.”

The University of Ljubljana employs more than 1,800 associates out of a total of 5,700 employees which indicates just how important its expert services are. Secretary-General of the University of Ljubljana Mihaela Bauman Podojsteršek stressed the significance of the award ceremony, which honours the hard work and effort of the associates. “Your work is indispensable in providing support to research and education. The University is not just any other institution. And it is thanks to your help, in particular, that it has developed considerable specific, often concealed knowledge, which enables our educators and researchers to achieve such high quality work.”
