Laboratory for tribology and interface nanotechnology (L-TINT), with nearly 20 experts, is recognized domestically and worldwide for providing research and technological solutions in the fields of surface and interface nanotechnology, boundary lubrication and tribochemistry, for the development of functional surfaces and contact engineering and for management of friction and wear mechanisms in systems with conventional and nonconventional...
The 2nd International Conference on Polymer Tribology, POLYTRIB 2016 will take place on the 15th and 16th of September at the Grand Hotel Union in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Prof. Kalin attended the Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Jost Report, which is considered as the birthday of Tribology as an independent scientific discipline.
In march a PhD thesis defence took place within Laboratory for Tribology and interface nanotechnology.
Prof. dr. Mitjan Kalin is the recipient of this year’s Zois Award for outstanding achievements in the field of contact nano engineering for molecular control of boundary lubrication and friction.
All four partner universities participating in the Master Tribos programme have successfully obtained accreditation for this Joint European master programme according to national legislation and institutional procedures.
Students of the first edition of the international Master program TRIBOS graduated in July.
