Significance for science
Results of all research mentioned in this report are published in international scientific journals with IF. The results were also reported as plenary and invited lectures at international congresses and symposia and various universities and in the form of review articles in international journals and books. International scientific committee of the Blue Danube Symposia decided to give the organization of the 13th Blue Danube Symposium to our group. The research work that was performed within the scope of the programme fundamentally contribute to the development of organic chemistry and organic synthesis, heterocyclic chemistry, combinatorial chemistry, medicinal chemistry, and material science. Regarding the topics of the performed investigations, the contribution to the development of organic chemistry and chemistry is important, especially in the field of modern synthetic methods including transition-metal catalysis, organocatalysis, stereoselective and asymmetric synthesis, combinatorial and diversity-oriented synthesis, C-H activation and cross-coupling reactions. In terms of interdisciplinarity, the research results issued from this programme also influence development of other related fundamental sciences, like pharmacy, molecular biology, biochemistry, medicine, material science, etc. In summary, the research results published in international literature and presented at scientific meetings have an impact on the development of basic and applicative research, as well as industrial investigations.
Significance for the country
The quality of research is proven by the following facts: all diploma students and Ph. D. students are easily employed in slovenian pharmaceutical industry, many among them are on the most important positions in research units. The importance of the performed research programme primarily reflects in the field of human resources, considering the fact that, within the program's framework, many chemistry students concluded their studies. With their further employment, both in industry and in research institutions, and state administration, they actively contribute to socio-economic and cultural development of Slovenia. Another significant aspect of the importance of the research programme is related to the collaboration of the entire programme group, as well as its individual researchers with the chemical and pharmaceutical industries in Slovenia and across Europe. This involvement in co-operation with the economy is, of course, based on programme group competences and clearly demonstrates the relevance of the performed programme. The results of the collaboration with the chemical and pharmaceutical industries in Slovenia and Europe indicates and validates the importance of our research programme for Slovenia's and Europe’s socio-economic development. In addition, the programme group is also involved in the performance of the EN-FIST center of excellence in the frameworks of project groups RRP11 and RRP18, which in the last three years, in addition to numerous international publications, earned five patents and one patent application. The above-mentioned policy of keeping the balance and synergy between the basic and applied aspects of research contributes to Slovenia's socio-economic and cultural development, as well as better understanding of general and specific issues of industrial development, while at the same time enables significant improvements in research laboratory equipment of the parent institution. In addition, the publication of research results in international scientific journals, as well as presentations of the research results at the international and national scientific conferences in the form of invited lectures, oral, and poster presentations also contribute to international promotion of Slovenian science and thereby of Slovenia in general.
