University of Primorska
The very first efforts to found a Primorska university were made almost one hundred years ago, whereas the first concrete steps towards the establishment of a new Slovene university were taken after the country had become independent. Thus 1992 saw the preparation of the expert study of the development of higher education in the region of Primorska, and a year later a letter of intent was signed envisioning the establishment of the University Study Centre.
In 1995, the Science and Research Centre of the Republic of Slovenia was founded in order to garner the intellectual potential of the future university, while 1996 witnessed the formation of the University Study Centre of Koper, which facilitated the development of higher education in the region and prepared the legal basis for founding the university. Two years later, the letter of intent was also signed by representatives of the regional economic sector and by regional chambers of commerce. On 29 January, 2003, the Slovene Parliament passed the University of Primorska Charter. The newly established university comprised three faculties, two colleges and two research institutes.
