The IPS Student Council has been active since the establishment of the Jožef Stefan International Postgraduate School. As representatives of students we aim to establish a connection between the management of the school and the students, as well as to resolve problems which may occur during the studies.
Our most important task is to organise the annual Student Conference (http://ipssc.mps.si). The main purpose of the conference is to spread information about research achievements of the IPS and participating institutes, as well as to establish connections between promising IPS students and employers, especially with successful development-driven companies. The modern labour market calls for highly qualified experts who are not only experts in their particular fields, but also master other skills. We are well aware of that in the Student Council, therefore we plan to organise various workshops where students can acquire information and knowledge from expert fields, such as public speaking or similar, from which they can benefit not only in the scope of the present research work, but also later on, when looking for an employment or already being involved in a new working process.
