Wednesday, 7 October 2020 UP acquired new bilateral scientific and research cooperation projects with Denmark and Norway

The Slovenian Research Agency (ARRS) announced that the University of Primorska again obtained funds for two bilateral scientific and research cooperation projects, this time with universities from Denmark and Norway.

The project Post-quantum cryptanalysis of block ciphers, whose principal investigator is prof. dr. Enes Pasalic, Chair of Center for Cryptography at UP FAMNIT, will be carried out in collaboration with researchers from the DTU Compute University in Denmark.

The aim of the project is to address an essential and contemporary research field of post-quantum cryptography and to also consider applications of Simon’s algorithm due to its polynomial complexity.

Another project is in collaboration with UiT - The Artic University of Norway and is entitled “Brand Equity Model in Higher Education”. The principal investigator of the project is Assoc. prof. dr. Tina Vukasović from the Department of Applied Natural Sciences at UP FAMNIT.

The main objective of this research is to enhance academic understanding of brand equity in the Higher Education (HE) sector and explore the implications for management practice. The last section of the project critically explains how a model, with appropriate adjustments, can also be extended as a basis for the construction of a general model for measuring brand equity in HE.
