At the end of March each year, we commemorate the birthday of the remarkable Slovenian physicist Jožef Stefan as traditional Days of Jožef Stefan, known also as Stefan’s Days, spanning the entire week. This year Stefan’s Days’ activities conclude with the Open Day 2022 on Saturday 26 March 2022. This event is organized by the Center for Technology Transfer and Innovation with cooperation of research departments and research centers. The event is open for general public interested in research activities on multidisciplinary fields of science.

INFORMATION FOR VISITORS

Open Day 2022 invites you to different programme sections on multidisciplinary fields of science.

The first programme section of the Open Day will start at 9:00 (CET) at the Jožef Stefan Institute (Jamova cesta 39). Each programme section starts at the full hour and lasts 1 hour. The last presentation will start at 13:00. Parking will not be available at the Jožef Stefan Institute (Jamova cesta 39), but visitors will have an option to park at the parking place near the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics (Jadranska ulica 15). The number of these parking places is limited.

Visits will also take place at the Reactor center Podgorica in a close vicinity of Ljubljana (Brinje 40, 1262 Dol pri Ljubljani) in the scope of programme section 4. Presentations at the Reactor center will start at 9:30, 10:30, 11:30, 12:30 and 13:30. Visitors at the Reactor center have to show their ID document (personal ID card or passport) in order to enter. It will be possible to park near Reactor center. Free bus transport will be organized between JSI Jamova cesta 39 and Reactor center Podgorica. The number of available seats on the bus is limited. Bus schedule: relation Jamova – Reactor: 9:00, 10:00, 11:00, 12:00, 13:00; relation Reactor – Jamova: 9:30, 10:30, 11:30, 12:30, 13:30, 14:30.

The number of visitors will be limited for each programme section with the aim to provide opportunity for a conversation with the researchers in each programme section. All visits are free of charge. Visitors have to follow all epidemiological requirements and recommendations. Indoors is the usage of masks mandatory. Additionally, visitors have to follow all safety instructions provided by JSI staff, especially by laboratory staff.

We kindly ask all visitors to stay in the group of each specific programme section, since visits of laboratories and other places at the Jožef Stefan Insititute without JSI staff is not allowed. Photographing inside and outside the premises at the location of Jožef Stefan Institute is not allowed without written consent. We thank you for understanding.
