With the aim of further student education and facilitating their growth as scientists and experts, the Association organizes extracurricular activities in the form of lectures, workshops and discussions, regularly during the academic year. Due to the interdisciplinarity of the Association’s activities, students are not strictly focused on one area but are inclined to constantly discover new facts that will enable them to solve problems in their careers after graduation.
Although only at the beginning, Probion behind itself has already had several successful projects. We particularly emphasize the project, the cycle of the workshop “Stekni zdrave navike”, where cooperation with kinesiology and medicine students was realized. Through a cycle of four workshops, students were educating their colleagues about proper nutrition, stimulating them on physical activity and changing lifestyles. The project was recognized by the University and was rewarded with Rector’s award in the past 2016/2017.
Also, a lecture titled PBF Film Festival is needed to point up, through which after the screened films, lectures of specialists focused on the theme of the film were held (World of Viruses, The Sugar Film …).
Along with the above, there are also projects “Budi zmaj za 6. maj, World Walking Day, International Congress of Nutritionists and many others. On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the existence of the Faculty of Food technology and Biotechnology, the work and effort of the student members was recognized and the Charter for Special Merit was given to the Association.
In addition to activities at the Faculty itself, PROBION also participates in various humanitarian actions whereby cooperation is made with the State Institute of Public Health Dr. Andrija Štampar, the Ministry of Health and many other institutions aimed at addressing citizens and their health.
Collected enthusiasts work voluntarily to plan more projects in the upcoming years to achieve the goals of setting up the Association and educate all gathered about the proper way of life and improving living habits.
