Mid-Term Development Strategy of the University of Primorska 2021–2027
On Wednesday, 23 December 2020, the Senate of the University of Primorska unanimously adopted the Mid-Term Development Strategy of the University of Primorska 2021–2027, which provides basic guidelines for the development of some key areas of UP's operation.
The Mid-term Development Strategy contains guidelines for ten interrelated pillars, which include scientific research and pedagogical excellence, advancement and updating of innovative study programmes, cooperation with society and industry, as well as with other knowledge users nationwide and internationally. Special emphasis is also placed on the staff structure and ensuring a mechanism to maintain quality in all areas, and on innovation and intellectual property, as well as on the international recognition of UP in the global network of universities and on internationalisation at home.
The strategy will be implemented through an Action plan, in which the aforementioned pillars are supported by concrete measures, necessary to achieve individual goals.
On the adoption of the strategy, the Rector of UP, Prof. Klavdija Kutnar, PhD, commented: »We are very pleased that all UP employees were actively involved in the preparation of such an important document and that it was also presented to students. The workload was intensive, as we defined all the chapters in detail and adopted them with the greatest consensus. We can boast that we have managed to prepare an important document that will give a new impetus to our university. The goals stem from the values and the mission of our institution and are, of course, ambitious and perhaps even daring. However, in this year of adapting to unpredictable conditions, we have already proven how successful we can be, that is why we can expect to even exceed some of the goals.«
The Mid-term Development Strategy for the period from 2021 to 2027 brings ways and methods of putting into effect the vision of UP, which through its scientific research, educational and artistic activities and its commitment to the local and wider society, is building and consolidating its position as a respected and excellent university in the global academic arena. UP is achieving high quality, inclusive and sustainable scientific, educational and artistic work in harmony with strategy Society 2050 with the principles of participatory science and the balance of humanities, social sciences and arts with natural sciences and (bio)technology.
