Organization of a summer school entitled 'Cities of the Future' within the project 'Internationalization of Higher Education'. In the frame of this event we co-organized with UL FGG and were editors of the scientific book with the title 'Cities of the Future'. The project was supported by the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport of the RS and the European Social Fund. The Seminar was intended to exchange information and knowledge on innovative approaches towards low-carbon society, sustainable use of natural resources and integrated management of water food and energy in cities, which is becoming an extremely important for life quality. The Courser was given by established experts in the area.

Alkane degrading microorganisms play an important role for bioremediation of petrogenic contaminated environments. In this study, we investigated the effects of compost addition on the diversity of alkane monooxygenase gene (alkB) harboring bacteria in oil-contaminated soil originated from an industrial zone in Celje, Slovenia, to improve our understanding about the bacterial community involved in alkane degradation and the effects of amendments. Soil without any amendments (control soil) and soil amended with compost of different maturation stages, i) 1 year and ii) 2 weeks, were incubated under controlled conditions in a microcosm experiment and sampled after 0, 6, 12 and 36 weeks of incubation. By using quantitative real-time PCR higher number of alkB genes could be detected in soil samples with compost compared to the control soil after 6, 12 and 36 weeks mainly if the less maturated compost was added. To get an insight into the composition of the alkB harboring microbial communities, we performed next generation sequencing of alkB gene fragment amplicons.
