University of Ljubljana - Biotechnical Faculty


The fundamental mission of the Biotechnical Faculty of the University of Ljubljana is to perform university, higher education, professional and postgraduate education, scientific-research and expert and consulting work in the field of science about living nature (biology, microbiology) as well as agriculture, forestry and fishery (forestry, animal science, agronomy) and the related production technologies (wood science, food science, biotechnology). The common basis of all study and scientific disciplines at the Biotechnical Faculty is natural resources (soil, space, flora, fauna, water). Owing to its focus on studying natural resources and their sustainable management, the Faculty is one of the national institutions that every nation wanting to shape and preserve its identity should have. Research and education in science about life and nature places great responsibility on the Biotechnical Faculty, namely to create expert and scientific foundations as well as strengthen the social climate to establish harmony between man and nature.
