2. 8. 2017
In recent months, IML-PRO researchers in cooperation with various research partners have been successful on both Slovenian and European calls for co-financing research projects. Thus, this year we started working on the following new projects:

  • LIFE for Acid Whey - Reuse of waste acid whey for extraction of high added value bioactive proteins. The project is co-funded by the European LIFE+ financial instrument, for the period 4.7.2017-30.6.2021. The company Arhel, d.o.o. will carry out the project (coordinator) in the partnership with the Institute of Dairy Science and Probiotics of the Biotechnical Faculty, University of Ljubljana (principal investigator sen. res. sci. Bojana Bogovič Matijašić, PhD). You can find more about the project on the OFFICIAL WEBPAGE of the project.
  • F4F - Functional Foods of the Future. The project is co-financed by the Republic of Slovenia and the European Union under the European Regional Development Fund (EKP 2014–2020, from the set »Smart Specialisation« research and inovation strategies, priority area »sustainable food production«). Coordinator of the project is Žito d.d., Ljubljana, and IML-PRO is involved in the implementation as a partner. The project lasts 4 years (1.9.2016-31.8.2020).
