The SPOZNAJ Project will introduce the principles of open science to Slovenian research organisations

2nd August 2023 marks the beginning of the project "SPOZNAJ - Support for the Implementation of Open Science Principles in Slovenia". This initiative involves the Central Technical Library at the University of Ljubljana and 20 Slovenian public research organizations, all of which will align their practices with the Scientific Research and Innovation Activities Act, the Regulation on the Implementation of Scientific Research in Alignment with the Principles of Open Science, and the practices and principles of open science within the European Research Area. Open science encompasses open access to research results, the adoption of responsible metrics for assessing the quality and impact of scientific research, and the engagement of citizens in scientific research activities. The project receives co-financing from the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Innovation and the European Union – NextGenerationEU through the national Recovery and Resilience Plan

The project consortium consists of:  

  • Central Technical Library at the University of Ljubljana as the project coordinator,   

  • Agricultural Institute of Slovenia,  

  • Educational Research Institute,  

  • Geological Survey of Slovenia,  

  • Institute for Ethnic Studies,  

  • Institute for Hydraulic Research, Ljubljana,  

  • Institute of Contemporary History,  

  • "Jožef Stefan" Institute, 

  • National Institute of Biology,  

  • National Institute of Chemistry,  

  • Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts,  

  • Rudolfovo – Science and Technology Centre Novo mesto,  

  • Science and Innovation Centre Pomurje,  

  • Science and Research Centre Koper,  

  • Slovenian Forestry Institute,  

  • Slovenian National Building and Civil Engineering Institute,  

  • Urban Planning Institute of the Republic of Slovenia,  

  • Faculty of Information Studies Novo mesto,  

  • University of Ljubljana (under its umbrella, the Slovenian Social Sciences Data Archives coordinates one of the work packages),  

  • University of Maribor (under its umbrella, the University Library Maribor coordinates one of the work packages) and  

  • University of Primorska. 

 

The project's objective is to raise awareness, educate, and empower the consortium partners' staff by providing them with relevant knowledge and skills in open science. This includes developing educational materials, establishing support structures, and adapting the operational mechanisms of the consortium partners to align with the principles of open science. In addition to the consortium partners, the project aims to engage other significant stakeholders in scientific research activities, such as private research and higher education organizations, independent researchers, public agencies (ARIS, NAKVIS), other public institutions (e.g., Arnes, libraries), business entities, and the wider interested public. 

By the project's completion on 30th June 2026, the consortium will organize a minimum of 30 public lectures on current topics related to open science and four national events with international participation. It will also define the profiles of support experts specializing in open science and research data management, creating a catalogue of their competencies. Specialised training sessions will be conducted for initial specialists in this field, including consortium partners and other interested institutions. Support structures will be established to assist these specialists as they commence their activities. Educational materials on practical applications of open science principles, with an emphasis on research data management, will be prepared in both online and printed formats. Existing documents and processes at consortium partners will be evaluated, proposing formal bases of operation in line with the principles of open science, and pilot adjustments will be implemented. The project will strive to raise awareness about the significance of open science among professionals and the general public. 

The "SPOZNAJ" project is aligned with the broader European development of open science. Namely, open science has been identified by the European Union as a key measure in the Research and Innovation Pact for the period 2022–2024 and was also written into law with the revised Directive (EU) 2019/1024 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 June 2019 on open data and the re-use of public sector information. Slovenia has adapted to these new European guidelines by enacting the Scientific Research and Innovation Activities Act in 2021, adopting the Resolution on the Scientific Research and Innovation Strategy of Slovenia 2030 in 2022, and implementing the Regulation on the Implementation of Scientific Research in Alignment with the Principles of Open Science and the Action Plan for Open Science in 2023. These legislative acts mandate those engaged in scientific research activities to ensure open access to research results, practice responsible evaluation of research work, and involve citizens in research activities.

The future of placemaking: Mapping the way forward for a better society

International Symposium, May 8th 2023, Museum of Architecture and Design, MAO, Rusjanov trg 7, Ljubljana

Placemaking refers to the inclusive process of creating and improving public spaces to promote health, happiness, and well-being for individuals and communities. Creating vibrant, accessible, and inclusive public spaces is crucial for building a sense of community and fostering social cohesion. Placemaking can help to create attractive, safe and welcoming spaces where people from diverse backgrounds can come together, interact, and build relationships. If properly designed, such places can also mitigate the challenges of contemporary societies, such as social alienation, mobility issues, impacts of climate change etc. Placemaking can also be an economic driver by attracting new visitors, supporting small businesses, and increasing property values.

This symposium aims to address various aspects of contemporary placemaking through the lectures of the invited speakers and by providing the podium for the exchange of thoughts and ideas on the ways forward for placemaking.

Due to the limited number of places at the venue please register at placemaking@uirs.si.

Alternatively, you can join online at (registration not needed in this case): LINK TO THE ONLINE EVENT.

We are looking forward to welcoming you!

Successful pilot workshop in Kranj

On August 24, 2021, a workshop was held in the pilot area of ​​the city of Kranj.

Many residents of the pilot area of ​​the Drulovka residential neighborhood responded to the invitation and attended the workshop. Participants shared their thoughts, aspects, exchanged challenges they see in the space, and made suggestions and wishes that they thought would improve their stay in the neighborhood.

The workshop was organized in three thematic groups. As part of the first thematic group of green and sports areas, participants talked about children's playgrounds, sports fields, gardens, footpaths, urban equipment, plantings, etc., as part of the thematic group safety, participants focused on traffic and fire safety in the neighborhood, talked about vandalism, waste, illegal construction.

As part of the third group of 'social events', participants thought about cultural and sports events, daycare, various forms of socializing, etc. The groups were very active, the participants took turns in all thematic groups and showed excellent participation.

Presentation of the poster at the 17th International Conference on Urban Health

This year’s theme of the 17th International Conference on Urban Health is »Transforming Our Collective Urban Future: Learning from Covid-19«. The conference will take place virtually from 6 to 8 July 2021 and will cover six topics related to the health and the urban environment issues: urban health inequities, transforming built environments, urban governance and public health systems, urban health over the lifecourse, climate change and urban health, urban health in Latin America and the Caribbean.

On Tuesday, June 6, 2021 at 3:30 pm , Dr. Vita Žlender will present a poster entitled »Development of evidence-based guidelines for designing green opens spaces to promote urban health through physical activity: Experience from Slovenia«. The authors of the poster and project member of the »Ven za zdravje« project (Ina Šuklje Erjavec, Vita Žlender and Jana Kozamernik) participated in the preparation of the guidelines for the Ministry of Health in 2019.

You can watch a short poster pitch here.

Abstract:
»Publicly accessible green open spaces such as parks, playgrounds and urban forests are key environments within urban tissue for promotion of physical activity and provision of many other public health benefits, including psychological relief and stress reduction, and the mitigation of various harmful factors such as excessive heat, noise, and air and water pollution. To expertly integrate spatial planning and public health topics, the Urban Planning Institute of the Republic of Slovenia (UIRS) in 2017 launched the programme entitled »Ven za zdravje« (Going out to stay healthy) – Expert basis for spatial planning of green areas, aimed at promoting physical activity of citizens. The programme was based on the preparation of a comprehensive overview of diverse aspects relating to planning, improvement, and management of green areas to achieve healthy and quality living environment. Its purpose was to stimulate more quality-of-life oriented planning and development of towns and settlements in Slovenia and develop expertise for providing spatial determinants for an active and healthy lifestyles for citizens of all ages and social groups. Accordingly, we conducted a comprehensive analysis of current national legislation and documents related to public health, physical activity promotion and spatial planning. We also carried out workshops and discussions with relevant public health experts, decision makers and planners. The main outcome of the programme were guidelines for green space planning to support municipalities in devising relevant approaches and promote physical activity of the population. The proposed approach was tested on a pilot study in the municipality of Kočevje in Slovenia.«

Smart Cities 2021 Conference - Activities of European Cities for Achieving Climate Neutrality

Abstracts of papers can be submitted by 21 June, conference scheduled for 16–17 September 2021 in Ljubljana

In cities, traffic remains one of the biggest sources of CO2 emissions not to have been curbed in recent years. The development of carbon-neutral cities raises the question of which approaches can be used to ensure a turnaround with respect to such emissions so as to preserve or even improve residents’ access to services in the future, thereby safeguarding their mobility. Changes in fuel consumption along with the development of information technologies in the planning, implementing, monitoring and communication with users hold the promise of playing an important role in this. Still, to achieve the ambitious goals concerning CO2 emissions and the broader impacts of traffic on the quality of urban living, these changes alone will not suffice. In the light of these goals and the newly-available technologies, cities will need to reconsider how their residents will live, work and access key services. To achieve this, balanced development will be required, together with the strong intertwining of spatial, traffic and digital accessibility.

Send us your contributions for the scientific Smart Cities 2021 Conference: Activities of European Cities for Achieving Climate Neutrality, scheduled for 16–17 September 2021 in Ljubljana.

Abstracts of papers can be submitted by 21 June at the conference’s website.

After the conference, we will publish the contributions in conference proceedings, whereas selected articles will be published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal ‘Urbani izziv’ (Urban Challenge).

CONFERENCE AGENDA

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION

CONFERENCE HOMEPAGE

SRIP Smart Cities and Communities in cooperation with the Jožef Stefan Institute, the Urban Institute of the Republic of Slovenia, CER - Partnership for the Sustainable Economy of Slovenia and the Association of Municipalities of Slovenia invites you to a scientific conference entitled Activities of European Cities for Climate Neutrality. We have decided to hold a scientific conference in the light of Europe's efforts to become climate-neutral by 2050, led by new European Commission missions, including the '100 Climate-neutral cities by 2030 - for citizens' mission. In this mission, the Commission will support and promote 100 European cities on their path to carbon neutrality.

The topics of the conference will shed light on some of the issues facing and will be encountered by cities on their path to climate neutrality. Cities and their representatives will gain insight into possible proposals and solutions to the problems that await them in establishing climate neutrality.

The conference will address three topics, all three of which are equally important in achieving climate neutrality. The first topic concerns the production, storage and distribution of renewable energy sources, the second topic presents possible solutions to tackle greenhouse gas emissions, especially CO2, the highest among them. The third topic will address mobility, and how new forms of mobility can help reduce CO2 emissions.

The conference will host experts from various fields at four round tables/panels, which will shed additional light on the topics that await us on the path to achieving climate neutrality in the coming years.

The conference will address three topics, all three of which are equally important in achieving climate neutrality. The first topic concerns the production, storage and distribution of renewable energy sources, the second topic presents possible solutions to tackle greenhouse gas emissions, especially CO2, the highest among them. The third topic will address mobility, and how new forms of mobility can help reduce CO2 emissions.


The conference will host experts from various fields at four round tables/panels, which will shed additional light on the topics that await us on the path to achieving climate neutrality in the coming years.
