This sentence stands for the description of our goals:

We merged the best partners, the best researchers, the best national research institutions, the best Slovene internationally recognized companies to create better, more stimulating environment for Primorska. We were able to bring together natural and social sciences to work hand in hand for better future. We are open for new partnerships and new research challenges.

Centre of Excellence for Biosensors, Instrumentation and Process Control, fully operates since 2010. It is a private found research institution and works in the most challenging and promising fields, such as bio-chemistry, bio-instrumentation, optics, new materials and advanced purification processes in pharmacy. 

Opertion of Centre of Excellence is financed by EU (european regional development fund - 85 %) and Republic of Slovenia (Ministry if Education, Science and Sport - 15 %) in total sum of 10 mio EUR.  Duration of operation: 2009-2013.
