Trimo Research Award

Yesterday, there was a splendid event called 7th Trimo Research Awards, which took place in a magnificent surrounding of Božidar Jakac gallery at Kostanjevica na Krki. And I was part of it, as one of the awardees for The Best PhD dissertation. This is a honour and recognition for me to be able to blend modern scientific findings with practical, down-to-earth situations that companies such are facing. Trimo is in many cases an example of good practices and is rigthly considered to be a learning organization. Desire to grow and develop constantly is deep-rooted in their ‘DNA’ – organizational culture. And they know what it means to set bridges among R&D institutions world-wide and their business. Together we are better, stronger, and faster.
