In January 2023, we, at the Faculty of information studies, started conducting half-yearly trainings as part of the Advanced Computer Skills pilot project. The project allows interested individuals to participate in free formal education that is founded by the European Union – NextGenerationEU and the Slovenian Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Innovation as part of the measures of the Recovery and Resilience Plan.

The pilot project enables individuals to develop digital competences and skills which are necessary for competitiveness on the labour market, while also pursuing the principle of green transition, sustainable values and sustainable development.

Thus, as part of the project, we at FIŠ decided to return two trees to nature and contribute to its preservation. Namely, we also strive to create an innovative environment by setting a positive example and contribute to a high-quality, sustainable and socially responsible environment.

The symbolic act of planting was performed by Dean, prof. dr. Matej Makarovič, in the presence of the Vice-Dean for education and one of the project leaders, assoc. prof. dr. Katarina Rojko, accompanied by other employees of the project and FIŠ.


The project is co-financed by the Republic of Slovenia, the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Innovation and the European Union – NextGenerationEU. The project is implemented in accordance with the plan within the development field Smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, component Strengthening of competences, especially digital and those required by new professions and the green transition (C3 K5), for investment measure F.
