    Ferroelectric high entropy oxides (FHEOs) are a novel type of ferroelectric material with the simultaneous existence of configurational entropy and internal ferroelectric polarisation. These effects combined with intrinsic lattice distortion and uneven electron-cloud distribution of high entropy oxides can lead to the generation of multiple active sites with improved separation of charge carriers, significantly impacting different photocatalytic reactions, such as pollutants degradation and water splitting. Furthermore, the visible-light-driven photocatalytic activity of FHEOs can be secured by the decoration with plasmonic metal nanoparticles (MNPs), efficiently harvesting visible light due to their localised surface plasmon resonance (LSPR). Thus, our strategy is to synthesize an entirely new FHEO and decorate it with plasmonic MNPs to produce a novel material with improved charge separation and visible light absorption, which will contribute to a major step forward in the catalysis field. The produced materials will be fully characterised and the photocatalytic efficiency will be evaluated over the degradation of pollutants present in wastewater and in the water splitting process.

    ClowdFlows is an open source cloud based platform developed within the MUSE FET project that supports the composition and execution of data and text processing workflows on the Web. It has a user-friendly graphical interface running in any browser, and supports big data analytics and text mining to discover patterns and regularities leading to new insights. As such, it fulfils the needs of many companies facing the problem of collecting huge amounts of data but lacking intuitive user-friendly tools to improve competitive market advantage. Data and text processing in ClowdFlows is easily managed in the browser by connecting processing components into an executable workflow executed in the cloud. Once constructed, workflows can be reused to process vast amounts of static data or high volumes of data streams. The web based platform is provided as a hosted service, with the ability for users to install it on a private cloud. In the proposed business model, ClowdFlows serves as a workflow publishing platform: a marketplace of ready-made workflows and data/text processing components, offering components for reuse to companies lacking the expertise and tools to perform needed big data analytics. From the end user’s perspective, the lack of internal developmental resources is compensated by crowdsourcing of needed new analytical components within the marketplace. From the developer’s perspective, the ClowdFlows marketplace allows the developers of processing components to publish and monetize their work, and to connect to companies in need of easy to use cloud based data mining tools. The CF-Web project will develop a value proposition focused on ease of use for end-users including SMEs, and serve as a marketplace of workflow components and provide revenue sharing for developers, while creating a growing, stable, new business venture based in Slovenia.

    Meet and learn What Excellent science does FOR YOU and the society is the major focus of the coordinated WeForYou action in performing the European Researchers’ Night 2014 and 2015 in Slovenia. Energy research & innovation, Environment & Climate Action, Health and ICT Research & Innovation are the priorities which will be tackled by a series of actions and opportunities for interchange of knowledge in the European Researchers’ Night 2014 and 2015 in Slovenia. The events in 2014 and 2015 in Slovenia will take place in: - Ljubljana, the main city square organized by Jožef Stefan Institute (JSI); - Novo mesto, organized by Faculty of Information Studies; - Piran and Piran bay, organized by National Institute of Biology; - Planica, Planetary Habitat Simulation Centre organised by JSI; - Krško, organized by Jožef Stefan Institute (JSI) The European Researchers' Night aims to bring researchers to the general public and to increase awareness of research and innovation activities, with a view to support the public recognition of researchers, creating an understanding of the impact of researchers' work on citizen's daily life, and encouraging young people to embark on scientific careers. Among the goals of WeForYou is one of special importance - presenting the researchers that have shown excellency in their results and achievement as ordinary people. Activities that are planned will enable the wide public audience to identify itself with the researchers’ life and to promote science in a firm expectation that the passed message to the young people will embark them on scientific careers. Children and adults addressed within the WeForYou activities will have the opportunity to understand science by experiencing its day-to-day practices, by frequenting the spaces and places where research is carried out and by coming into contact with its machinery and equipment, but above all by talking to those directly involved in scientific research that brings benefit to the society.
