Maribor, 9 March - The Maribor-based university Alma Mater Europea is hosting a two-day science conference on Friday and Saturday. Running under the auspices of President Borut Pahor, the conference aims to provide an opportunity to students to find their footing in the world of research, and learn about global trends in their respective fields.

The conference will feature 400 authors from 18 countries presenting 240 contributions from as many as 22 fields, ranging from human rights, psychotherapy, religion, blockchain, physical therapy, social gerontology, to health promotion and dance.

The event also features a number of acclaimed guests, including Felix Unger, the president of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts, Tadej Bajd, the president of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts, and Dieter Schlenker, the director of the Historical Archives of the EU, among others.

The mission of the privately-owned Alma Mater Europea is based on "trans-nationality, interdisciplinary approaches and bridging gaps between cultures and generations, especially in Central Europe," its chair Ludvik Toplak said ahead of the event.
