We would like to invite you to the international conference Cutting Edge 2015: Youth in Science, which will be held on Tuesday, 22 September 2015 at 9:00 a.m. at the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology of the University of Ljubljana.

Due to changes in the Scholarship Act, which took effect last year, the Faculty chose to organise a one day international science conference: Cutting Edge 2015. Namely, the Zois Scholarships are now accessible only to those students who have outstanding achievements in addition to excellent grades. As there are few events where students can present their research achievements and participation fees at reputable conferences are expensive, young research assistants, the Student council of the Faculty, the Student organisation of the Faculty, and the management of the Faculty joined forces to offer an alternative for students of science and technology. At the conference, organised lectures by recognised foreign experts will be accompanied by presentations of research work by students who will thus have the opportunity to show their findings in order to qualify for the Zois Scholarship.
