The University of Novo mesto was established in 2018 and consists of four faculties. Scientific research activity at the University is carried out at four institutes for scientific research activity of each faculty. In December 2019, we also established the UNM Institute for Scientific Research to conduct interdisciplinary scientific research activities.
There are approximately 35 researchers working at the University's member institutes who publish high-quality, internationally recognised scientific papers. Read more about the researchers and their publications here.
Scientific research is conducted at the University and provision is made for the development of the profession in the fields of nursing, physiotherapy, economics and business administration, engineering/technical sciences, computer and information sciences, and the environment.
Researchers are very active in various international, national and regional research and training programmes and projects. For example, we collaborate in international projects, e.g. Erasmus + KA2 programs such as Developing multi-professional Higher Education for promoting mental health and well-being at schools. In the framework of European Innovation Partnership (EIP) we are running three projects, e.g. Developing and implementing training on medicinal plants on educational farms - Phyto farms. We are also conducting basic projects, e.g. Multiparametric dynamic modelling of layered highly inhomogeneous elastic structures and application projects, e.g. The impact of integrated clinical pathways on patient outcomes, communication and cost-effectiveness, funded by the Slovenian Research Agency. We are very involved in regional development and are running numerous projects within the LAS of Dolenjska and Bela Krajina, e.g. Reviving Haystacks.
We also run a number of smaller regional projects that enable students to gain practical experience and acquire additional knowledge and skills that are increasingly important for entering the labour market and shaping a professional career. Most of these projects are actually initiated by business and non-business entities from the regional environment, which pose various challenges to the members of the university. They solve these challenges together in research and development projects in which the students also actively participate. In this way, students acquire the competences to solve real challenges in the environmental field and improve their employment opportunities already during their studies.
