USERN is an independent, non-profit and non-governmental network whose vision is to promote cutting-edge science in order to improve the quality of life and to preserve public goods for future generations. The Honorary Advisory Board consists of 14 Nobel Prize winners as well as more than 300 top 1% of scientists from all over the world, including prof. dr. Marjan Mernik (UM FERI).

Prof. dr. Marjan Mernik received an invitation to the board that he accepted with pleasure. Among the other successes that contributed to the invitation was certainly also the fact that in 2017 he was named Clarivate Analytics high-ranking researcher as the only one from Slovenia in the field of computer science and informatics.

Prof. dr. Marjan Mernik: "Being in The Honorary Advisory Board of USERN is certainly a great honor for me, for the institute and faculty. Cooperation and membership will make it easier for me to get in touch with the best researchers around the world, although I already work with researchers from Europe, America, Asia, Australia and Africa."

Congratulations!
