The aim of postgraduate research funding is to enable young researchers - PhD students - to participate in research work during their postgraduate studies on the basis of fixed-term employment contracts. Slovenian Research Agency (Javna agencija za raziskovalno dejavnost Republike Slovenije) finances their salaries, social contributions, as well as material and non-material costs. The average annual cost for financing one young researcher is approx. 30.000 EUR. Funds for the training of young researchers are allocated for a fixed-term, up to a maximum of 4 years.

The objective of this mechanism is to rejuvenate research groups and enable the inflow of fresh ideas and approaches. It is a source of highly qualified and motivated personnel with a great potential for Slovenian economy and other socially relevant areas.

The programme runs with great success since 1985. To date more than 5,000 young researchers have successfully completed the programme.
