Caregiving and home care

One of our researchers, Assistant Professor Boštjan Kerbler is one of the co-authors of a book titled : »Caregiving and home care«

One of our researchers, Assistant Professor Boštjan Kerbler is one of the co-authors of a book titled : »Caregiving and home care« in which he wrote a chapter about using information and communication technology in home care for the elderly.
Most elderly people wish to stay at home in their familiar environment for as long as possible, where they are able to lead their lives with the best possible quality of life. The possibility to remain in their living environments can be achieved with the help of information and communication technology (ICT) by which home care could be provided remotely and by moving elder-care activities to their homes.

Youth mobility

Changes in the mobility of primary school pupils

The article from the latest issue of the Urbani izziv journal.

Changes in the mobility of primary school pupils over the last thirty years have been alarming. How extensive are they? What are the reasons why today most of the primary school children are brought to school by car, although not so long ago, almost all children came on foot or by bicycle? What are the options for improving the situation? Our colleagues PhD Aljaž Plevnik, PhD Luka Mladenovič, and Mojca Balant have presented the answers to these questions in an article published in the Urbani izziv.

'Doma Kultury'

Regeneration of Soviet socio-cultural centres into new urban nodes

Library of Urban Planning Institute of Republic of Slovenia,
Tuesday November 28th 2017 at 5PM, lecture in English and free of charge

Irina Irbitskaya, Center of Urban Competence, Russian Academy of National Economy and Public Admin.

The transformation of the socio-cultural infrastructure erected in the state-socialist period of the Soviet Union into local activity centers corresponding to the needs of contemporary society is one of the pertinent topics of the current urban planning in Russia. It includes various activities such as turning the excluded territories of schools and kindergartens into neighborhood centers; resetting the entire district life by transformation of the ‘doma kultury’; improving the diversity and the quality of social services and the quality of the urban environment while reducing the load on the municipal budget by attracting quality investment into the districts. The lecture will present a method of evolutionary transformation of the urban environment through the social and spatial transformation of a ‘dom kultury’ which initially was the cultural and educational centre provided by the Soviet state to a settlement or a city. The main goal of the proposed approach is to preserve the traditions kept in the territory of ‘dom kultury’ while giving it a new identity and bringing in an innovation. Irbitskaya will explain how to make an inventory of the traditions around the existing object by describing the way it functions, its relationship with the surrounding space, its attitude to the past and the future. Re-programming of the object will be discussed, as well as the tools to expand it spatially. Financial and management models will be proposed for all phases of the project metabolism (launch, implementation, use and adaptation), explaining how the emphases shift depending on the growth or decline of the economy.


Irina Irbitskaya is an architect and urban planner. She is a director of Center of Urban Competence at the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA) with the expertise in housing projects and urban development and planning advancement. She is a co-funder and a principal architect of Platforma, a strategic consulting and conceptual spatial and architectural design office.
