Nova Gorica is a town in the western part of Slovenia, on the border with Italy. In 1995–1996, the Faculty of Environmental Sciences was established here, and by 2006 the University of Nova Gorica was founded, which now consists of 5 faculties, 2 colleges, 6 laboratories and 6 research centres.
A special pride of the University is the hadron collider, located in the Laboratory for Elementary Particle Astrophysics. This particle accelerator appeared thanks to the cooperation of the University in Nova Gorica and the Japan Centre for High Energy Physics. They together carry out research in the field of elementary particles of B-meson decays.
