Vice-Rector for Science and Technology, Melita Kovačević in his opening speech stressed the support of the University of Zagreb, to support projects funded by the European Union. The importance of these projects is further emphasize the present students of Textile Technology, whose subsequent work indeed have the ability contribute to scientific research, and development of the economy.
Vice-Rector Kovačević is author of the first chapters in book entitled Research like the present and the future of the University of Zagreb
First of the students' work, entitled: Analysis of adsorbed polyurethane membrane, is presented by Meliha Omerović. The work was developed with a colleague Katarina Suton, under the mentorship of prof. Stana Kovačević.
Third place in the Student Category was won Lara Karlavaris with work entitled: Functionally designed summer protective shirts, made under the mentorship of Prof. Z. Mencl Bajs and doc. A. Tomljenović.
Second place in the Student Category was won Adriana Stimac with work entitled: Multifunctional nano treatment of women's headgear, developed under the supervision of doc. A. Tomljenović and MA S. Bogović.
First place in the category of students won student Jelena Hačko and Slavica Andrić with work entitled Application of argon plasma to improve the fixing, made under the mentorship of Ph.D. S. Ercegović.
In the category of doctoral candidates in the contest was declared Ten entries.
Zoran Kovačević presented a paper titled: Broom - a new fiber for composites, made during her scientific research stay at the Institute of Natural Fibres and medical plants in Poznan, Poland. The work was created in collaboration with Edytom Bogacz and is made under supervision of Prof S. Bischof Vukušić and Malgorzata Zimniewska, PhD.
Marina Turalija is still on the research stay at the cooperative institution EMPA, St. Gallen, and was not able to give a presentation. Her presentation is among other contributions. The paper, entitled Surface modification polylactide with silver was created under the mentorship of S. Gaan, PhD and Prof. Bischof Vukušić.
The next work under the title: Flammability and thermal stability of cotton fabrics treated micro-encapsulating triphenyl phosphate is introduced by Eva Magovac. Eva was a collaborator on the project FP7-REGPOT-2008-1-229801 in period of two years and is now employed at the Croatian Chamber of Commerce in Karlovac. The work was created during her scientific research stay at the University of Ljubljana in cooperation with Boštjan Šumiga, a representative of Aero. Mentors of this work were Prof. P.
