Current projects


The project is focused on the development and systematic research with which we intend to show that a mixture of bio-aromatic compounds with well-defined chemical properties (eg molecular weight distribution, the concentration of free OH groups) can be obtained by appropriate selection of raw material and adapted lignin isolation, possible fractionation and depolymerization. ) and used for the synthesis of phenol-formaldehyde and epoxy resins and polycarbonates as a functional substitute for phenol or bisphenol-A.

International cooperation - COST action CA 18220 - European Network of FURan based chemicals and materials FOR Sustainable development (FUR4Sustain). (European Network for Furan-Based Chemicals and Materials, for Sustainable Development).


The PolyFlip project (Development of a flipped classroom approach for (polymer) engineering study programs with the use of innovative ICT tools) is one of the Erasmus + projects, key action 2 (KA2) - "Project cooperation for innovation and exchange of good practices".

Our faculty successfully applied for the ARRS (Slovenian Research Agency) public tender named "Sofinanciranje znanstvenoraziskovalnega sodelovanja med Republiko Slovenijo ter Bosno in Hercegovino v letih 2019 – 2020 (Co-financing scientific and research cooperation between the Republic of Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina in the years 2019-2020)". 

The MAPgears proect is a project co-funded by the Republic of Slovenia - Ministry of Education, Science and Sport - and the European Union – European Regional Development Fund. 

The CoSiMa project is a project co-funded by the Republic of Slovenia - Ministry of Education, Science and Sport - and the European Union – European Regional Development Fund.

The Polymetal project is one of  the approved projects in the frame of the »Cooperation Programme Interreg V-A Slovenia-Austria«. 

Completed projects

International cooperation - COST action CA15107 - Multi-Functional Nano-Carbon Composite Materials Network (MultiComp)

MultiComp is a COST campaign designed to bring together theorists, experimenters and industrialists in the field of nano-carbon materials technology.

Creative Core VŠTP (Kreativno jedro VŠTP) was a project approved within the »Operational Programme for Strengthening Regional Development potentials for period 2007-2013.«

The PolyRegion Project pursues the goal of developing the existing significant potential in the field of polymers and polymer processing technology in the regions of Slovenia (Koroska, Savinjska) and Austria (Styria, Carinthia).

The project PolyRegion - Pro.Act was launched as an add-on project to the PolyRegion activities. The new project concentrates on R&D and educational tasks and will strengthen the competitiveness and international visibility of PolyRegion.

Project “Factory Labs” was a joint project of two partners, HTL Wolfsberg and The Polymer Technology College, which was approved within the Operational Programme Slovenia-Austria 2007-2013.
