Today we received the visit of Dr Stanislav Raščan, State Secretary at the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Dr Slobodan Šešum, Acting Director-General for Economic and Public Diplomacy. They were welcomed by EMUNI’s President Prof. Dr Abdel-Hamid El-Zoheiry and Head of Academic Affairs Dr Jerneja Penca. 

The meeting was an opportunity to discuss potential synergies between EMUNI and Slovenian foreign affairs. Our institution is by nature projected onto the Mediterranean and benefits from a large network of academic institutions in the region.

EMUNI’s role in science diplomacy and academic cooperation was acknowledged as relevant for future cooperation with the Slovenian government. 

EMUNI’s distinguished guests from the MFA were on the coast on the occasion of the cabinet meetings that are routinely scheduled outside of the region of Ljubljana. Such cabinet meetings give the opportunity to ministers and high-ranking civil servants to connect with local stakeholders across Slovenia and develop synergies with like-minded institutions as in the case of EMUNI.
