Our 5th workshop for young researchers took place on the 7th of February 2014 at the Rogla hotel. In his opening speech Mr. Željko Blažeka (director of the IEI, Ltd.) admonished the value of researching activities and the need to involve young researchers and also to involve economy. He introduced the activities at the IEI, Ltd. Company and then headed the word to the young researchers. They introduced themselves with their doctor dissertation and intermediate research results. The mentors of the young researchers and also other professional participants all took part in the discussions by the presentations and exposed professional issues.
The involvement of the numerous professional participants from different fields shows the significance of such workshops.
