Visit us during the Open Day!
Each year at the end of March, traditional Stefan’s Days take place at the Institute, marking the birthday (24 March) of the great Slovenian scientist, Jožef Stefan. In the scope of Stefan’s Days, Center for Technology Transfer and Innovation – in cooperation with the Institute’s research departments – organizes the Open Day. Visitors can choose from a number of visit programmes and look at the laboratories at Jamova cesta and at the Reactor Center where the tours are enabled and organized by the Nuclear Training Center (ICJT).
This year’s Open Day will be organized on Saturday, 24 March 2018.
We invite organized groups to visit us – upon prior announcement – also during the Stefan’s Days, between 19 March 2018 and 23 March 2018.
Information for Visitors
Open Day begins at 9:00 with the first guided tours, while we take the last groups through the Institute’s laboratories at 13:00; in the meanwhile, guided tours begin at each full hour. Each visit in the course of one programme lasts one hour (60 minutes).
Prior announcement is not necessary, all visits are free of charge.
Parking of cars and buses is not possible on the Institute’s premises. Buses that carry schoolchildren may enter the main parking lot to enable safe exit from the bus.
