Centre of Excellence NAMASTE was established on 16th February 2010 at the inaugural session. Director of CoE is dr. Alenka Rožaj Brvar, MBA.

Centre of Excellence NAMASTE (Advance materials for the future) is combining science, technological and business excellence driven associates. Three partners University of Ljubljana, University of Maribor and Jožef Stefan Institute cooperate with 17 partners from industry in order to foster key technological advances in areas related to non-metallic materials and their implementation in electronics, optoelectronics, photonics, and medicine.

Science excellence, multi-disciplinary connection, knowledge and technology transfer lead to higher added value and competitiveness and better position of Slovene industry in the global market. Excellent balance between academic and application research is our advantage.
