The Jožef Stefan Institute was founded in 1949 and has since acted as the leading Slovene scientific research institute which covers a broad spectrum of basic and applied research. Its staff of about 850 specialises in physics, chemistry and biochemistry, electronics and information science, nuclear technology, energy utilisation and environmental science. The institute consults with acclaimed scientists within its International Advisory Board and is also a member of EARTO - European Association of Research and Technology Organisations.

Art and science

The Jožef Stefan Institute is also interested in the interface between science and arts, and dedicated its 2006 "Jožef Stefan Days" to the theme Science and Arts. The institute has collaborated on the development of technology-based artworks with the ArtNetLab, Academy of Fine Arts and Design and the Faculty of Computer and Information Science.

The Jožef Stefan Institute Gallery in the lobby of the institute's main building, however, has a more traditionally oriented programme, dedicated to Slovene fine arts.
