Invitation to Info Day: UL Innovation Fund Call for Proposals
In April 2020, the University of Ljubljana established the Innovation Fund to support promising projects in the field of knowledge transfer. With the received funds, the projects will approach higher technology readiness level thus increasing the appeal of such technologies for potential buyers and the market. The Innovation Fund’s budget for 2020/2021 amounts to EUR 70,000. Funds will be allocated to selected projects through the Call. In order to present the conditions for the participation in the Call, we announce:
