RUK is a network of research centers at the intersection of art, science and technology. In this interdisciplinary triangle, we are developing innovative products and services for the soft and humane technology of the future. The investment is co-financed by the Republic of Slovenia and the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund. More ...
RUK labs are thematic creative labs, set up on three partners' locations, DDT, PiNA and KIBLA, on the Slovene geographic trunk line Koper – Trbovlje – Maribor.
DDTlab, HEKA and KIBLA2LAB create and strengthen the base of required technological knowledge and competences for activities in the field of humanities, in relation to science and economy and the associated professions of the future. The labs are a hub for innovative explorations and responses to the challenges of modern times.
The capillary network of labs extends into Slovene regional ecosystems, which are further connected into a nation-wide community environment, and at the same time integrated into global networks, kindred ecosystems and institutions on an international level.
