VISITS TO THE MAIN UNIT IN LJUBLJANA (VIČ DISTRICT)
 
The main unit of the Jožef Stefan Institute is located at Jamova cesta 39 in Ljubljana (view the map).
 
Upon prior announcement you can visit us from Monday to Friday between 9:00 and 16:00. Please send us you enquiry at least 14 days before the date of the planned visit.
 
The entire visit can consist of one programme (3 x 20 min) or of maximum two programmes (2 sets of 2 x 20 min with a pause in between).
 
Maximum number of visitors under each programme is, due to safety reasons, limited to 15 persons (within a single visit, a maximum of 45 visitors can visit the Institute). During the school year, we are able to accept the visit of one school per week. Any additional change in number of visitors is not possible due to organizational reasons. In case the visitors are primary or high school pupils/students, they need to be accompanied by a teacher, professor or other person with pedagogical education, employed by the school.
 
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. Additionally, they may also pick up the children at the main parking lot.
 
We ask for a thorough compliance with the safety instructions given by the IJS staff (especially those given by the laboratory staff). Uncontrolled walking through the Institute’s laboratories is not allowed due to safety reasons, please stay with the group.
 
 
PREPARED PROGRAMMES
 
Duration of visits
 

  • One-hour visit: You can choose one of the programmes that include the visit to three departments in the full duration of 1 hour (3 x 20 min).
  • Longer visit: You can also select a longer visit in the full duration of one hour and forty minutes (2 sets of 2 x 20 min with a pause in between) by choosing 2 departments from two of the prepared programmes.

 
Additional offer
 
Due to a high demand, we have – in cooperation with the Department of Inorganic Chemistry and Technology (K1) – prepared an additional offer of “School of experimental chemistry” that is expected to be organized twice a month in the duration of approximately 1 hour. We kindly ask you to check the overview of booked visits and contact us for details at ijsobiski@ijs.si.
 
 
Change of programme
 
Due to the nature of work, organization and occupancy of laboratories, visit coordinators may change the visit programmes without prior consultation with the visitors. Still, the date, time and duration of the visit will always remain unchanged. We thank you for your understanding!
 
 
TAKING PHOTOGRAPHS
 
Without prior written permission, taking photographs on the premises of the Institute is not allowed. Thank you for your understanding!
 
 
FOOD
 
Please do not eat during the presentations in the laboratories. Schools and visit organizers can agree on breaks between the presentations. Additionally, IJS has its own restaurant that is open for all visitors.
 
 
SPECIAL NOTIFICATION FOR THE VISITORS OF THE SCHOOL OF EXPERIMENTAL CHEMISTRY
 
As a part of the School of experimental chemistry, groups can also prepare ice cream by using liquid nitrogen. We at JSI are always delighted to eat that ice cream, however, we are obliged to notify you that the Institute is not registered for the production of ice cream and does thus not assume any responsibility for the eating thereof. Consequently, you are eating the ice cream produced during the School of experimental chemistry on your own responsibility.
 
 
VISITS TO THE REACTOR CENTER PODGORICA
 
Reactor Center Podgorica is located at Brinje 40, Dol pri Ljubljani (view the map).
 
In case you wish to visit Reactor Center Podgorica, arrange your visit with the Milan Čopič Nuclear Training Center (ICJT) by sending your enquiry to the address icjt@ijs.si.
 
As required by law, all visitors to the TRIGA MARK II Reactor need to carry a valid personal identification document and enable the reactor’s staff to view it and document the personal data. We ask you to fill in the application form for the visit of the TRIGA MARK II Reactor and send it scanned to the addresses icjt@ijs.si and ijsobiski@ijs.si, while we ask you to bring the original with you on the day of your visit.
