RUK is a network of research centers at the intersection of art, science and technology. In this interdisciplinary triangle, we are developing innovative products and services for the soft and humane technology of the future. RUK's goal is the integration of art and culture in scientific and technological research, development and innovation, digitalization, entrepreneurship, training, and education. The network of RUK centers consists modularly of three locally-regionally-nationally-internationally located platforms DDT, PiNA, and KIBLA. The investment is co-financed by the Republic of Slovenia and the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund.
