In 2020 the University of Ljubljana acquired 69 new full professors in various fields of science and research, arts and education. Each year we pronounce them in a ceremonial event, but this year due to the epidemiological situation this was sadly not possible. We are therefore proud to present the new full professors in this article, and to congratulate them most warmly.

“The full professors have proven themselves capable of treading the path required by the highest levels of quality in the profession of a higher education teacher. This path is demanding, long and unpredictable, and only the best can tread it in this highly competitive international environment,” says Prof. Dr Igor Papič, Rector of the University of Ljubljana. He wishes for all the new full professors that their acceptance of the title will open up further opportunities for building on their prized work, which they might pursue now with even greater dedication. “May this title be a source of pride, joy and personal satisfaction for you,” adds the Rector.
