The Fourth International School on Logistics

This year, the Faculty of Logistics of the University of Maribor will again organize a summer school. This will be the fourth consecutive event of such kind under the general title “Integration of People and Goods Movement Together with the Modern Society 2.0” (Integracija pretoka ljudi in blaga s sodobno družbo 2.0).

It will be held at the Faculty of Logistics in Celje, from 8 to 18 June 2016.

The Summer School aims at acquiring new knowledge in the field of sustainable logistics and transportation within the region and worldwide, environmental problems and difficulties associated therewith, and renewable energy sources as well as at deepening knowledge in the field of organizational communication and business ethics, and at familiarizing with examples of good practice.

The UM Faculty of Logistics developed interesting lectures, tutorials and seminars specifically for their implementation within the Summer School program.

In addition to the teachers from the Faculty of Logistics, the outstanding and world-renowned scientists, including Prof. Dr. Kenneth Button from the George Mason University (USA) and Prof. Dr. Anna Voroshilova from the Russian Siberian Aerospace University (Krasnoyarsk) will participate in the work of this Summer School.

Lectures will be divided into three thematic areas:

  1. sustainable transportation development and renewable energy sources in the field of logistics;
  2. organizational communication and business ethics;
  3. strategic sustainable logistics and transportation design.

Part of the activities held in the International Summer School aims at arranging a communication between the Slovenian and foreign students and teachers, so its organizers plan to devote free time to holding cultural events in Celje.

All participants of the International Summer School will receive a certificate. Those persons, who will successfully fulfil their academic tasks, will receive a certificate for the exams passed with 3 accepted ECTS credit points.
