The Laboratory for Electrocatalysis is part of the National Institute of Chemistry, which is located very close to the center of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. Many city sites scan be found within a 15 min walk from the institute, such as the funicular to the Ljubljana Castle, the central market, Prešeren Square with the Triple Bridge and the University of Ljubljana.
The institute's central location facilitates collaboration with other research and academic institutions in the vicinity: Jožef Stefan Institute, Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology, The Institute of Metals and Technology, Faculty of Pharmacy and others, as seen from this video.
In addition to the lively academic environment, the institute is nested within calm surroundings of the nearby parks and the Kolezija city swimming pool, positioned right in front of the institute.
The laboratories are located within the Pregl research center of the NIC. The building was finished in 2013 and carries the name of the Nobel laureate for chemistry of Slovenian descent, Friderik Pregl. In spirit of his legacy (he was awarded the prize for developing a breakthrough analytical technique), the Pregl research center is home to cutting-edge research equipment.
