On the 27th of May 2013, I got promoted to the title of an Assistant Professor by the Faculty of Economics University of Ljubljana Senate, based on the decision by the promotion committee of the University of Ljubljana. You can check out my new academic profile as a scientific associate at the FELU website here.
What makes a KIC a KIC? How have the different EIT Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) found unique ways to best organise the knowledge triangle in order to achieve impact on the European Innovation landscape through excellent partnerships, innovative funding models and project portfolio? How can these impacts be measured? How will the future of the EIT capitalise on the multiplier capacity of individuals in spreading the expertise gained throughout their relation with the EIT and its KICs?
What is the current engagement with regions, other national and EU instruments succeeding? How can synergies be created and further explored? And what specific future measures can be taken?
Key questions not only for the EIT to learn from and to use as a basis for developing and preparing for its next wave of Knowledge & Innovation Communities (KICs) and its innovation agenda, but also for the wider innovation community.
Really interesting conference both for COBIK and its future prospects, as well as for our policy-makers in light of the new smart specialization strategy. And Dublin/Trinity College were wonderful!

On Wednesday, April 24th, I received my PhD diploma during the official ceremony at the University of Ljubljana main building. My supervisor made a very nice speech, and the vice-rector personalized her congrats. Doesn't get much better that that :) Some more pics below.
