The ZORH team!
The convention of scientists, specialists and students on environmental protection in the Republic Croatia (3rd ZORH convention) is a project organized by students of the Faculty of Chemistry and Technology in Split, in cooperation with the student section of the Croatian Society of Chemical Engineers and Technologists and The Faculty of Materials, Metallurgy and Recycling of Technical university at Košice. The convention is aimed towards students of chemistry, chemical technology and other related studies, along with scientists and experts who are actively engaged in the field of ecology and environmental protection. The right to participate have: undergraduate and graduate students of chemistry, chemistry technology and related studies, scientists and experts actively engaged in scientific work in the field of ecology and environmental protection and employees from various institutions who with with my experience I can point out the problems of water and air pollution and disposal of waste generated in production. The goal of the 3rd ZORH convention is to connect the academic community with the industry, in order to discuss key problems and to further stimulate public interest in environmental protection. With the goal of reaching as many people as possible, 3rd ZORH convention will have an international character. The members of our team are (from left to right): Leonardo Pavlović, Jelena Sedlar, Ana Mlakić, Marija Duktaj, Klara Magaš, Verena Šućurović, Petra Brajković and Ante Matošin.

Statements of participants about the convention

Hello everyone, four years ago, motivated KTF students, eager for new knowledge and aware that with a small step can make a significant change for a better tomorrow, launched the idea of ZORH. With the help of professors, colleagues from other faculties and good people, the ZORH convention came to life. Thanks to that, a large number of people from different institutions and beyond connected. In addition to spreading knowledge and perspectives, new projects have been launched, and lasting friendships have been formed. Today, a new team of students took over the organization and raised ZORH to a higher level, which is why I am extremely happy. I hereby invite scientists, experts in the field of environmental protection to get involved in this commendable project and be a motivation to young people. I also recommend students to respond as exhibitors, present their final and graduate theses because ZORH is the perfect opportunity to present student work in a pleasant atmosphere. Ivana, mag. chem.
Hi, my name is Franka Folo and I graduated in chemical engineering at the Faculty of Chemistry and Technology in Split. I was one of the co-founders of ZORH and I am immensely happy that the tradition of ZORH continues! ZORH started as a student initiative and the desire to educate as many people as possible on the issue of the currently burning topic - Environmental Protection. The goal is to connect students and industry and technologically try to approach the problem as well as possible through professional lectures and opinion exchange panels. We received an extremely positive Feedback from all participants and with the acquired new knowledge, the most valuable are new friendships with colleagues from other faculties as well as colleagues from the world of industry and science. 🙂
Greetings I am Patricia Ćutuk, a 3rd year student of food technology at the Faculty of Chemical Technology in Split. This is my first experience with the ZORH project. It was supposed to be different, but unfortunately the corona got her fingers in it a bit. I heard about ZORH from older colleagues and there were always various announcements on the social networks of the faculty and the student body, so the information could not bypass us students. To be a part of this commendable project, I was motivated by the desire to show that our country really can and should be greener. And of course, socializing, getting to know each other and gaining new acquaintances and experiences are not out of the question.
My name is Petra Brajković and I am a 5th year student at KTF. I learned about the ZORH project 3 years ago through older colleagues at the faculty and since then I have been actively participating in all activities. I was encouraged to apply for this project by older students who in 2018 organized the first such convention and left the faculty. Their work, effort and will. They were ingenious, believe me. This convention brought me many friends and fond memories that I will remember for a long time. And I want to be like them someone who will encourage someone else to join in the future. This is an ingenious opportunity to combine work, friendship and learning. Since the aim of this convention is to connect the academic community with the economy and discuss key issues in environmental protection and stimulate public interest in environmental protection, I am extremely glad that I, along with my colleagues, are involved in this project.
Hi, I'm Gloria. I graduated a year and a half ago from the Faculty of Chemical Technology as a first generation student of food technology. Through five years of academic education I have been active in many congresses, seminars, public gatherings and projects but one is special. One is ZORH! So much energy, so much good atmosphere, ambitious and positive young people in one place, who with their work and effort managed to make one such event. I am proud to say that I was part of that magical team. Being part of the organizing committee of ZORH helped me to make many new acquaintances, connections and contacts with colleagues and experts from the world of science, industry and technology. Through such gatherings you build your personality and learn planning, public speaking, acting and organizational skills. Today, all this experience and knowledge has helped me find a job in the profession. I am very proud that there are some new, younger, generations that will continue what we started!

It actively monitors current trends, advances and changes like the world around it. She also defended her leading position in the quality of education provided in the last evaluation of university faculties in which she ranked 5th out of a total of 24 faculties in the group of technically oriented faculties.
Croatian Society of Chemical Engineers and Technologists
The Student Section of the Croatian Society of Chemical Engineers and Technologists, founded in 2017, is the only association or section of chemical engineering students in Europe. Today, it has 65 members who want to contribute to the popularization of science with their creativity and knowledge and encourage positive changes in the wider community. The official journal SSKI is the popular science magazine Reaktor, which is recognized as a particularly valuable work for promoting the science of HD ideas, chemistry and chemical engineering, among young people and the general public and has the support of the Ministry of Science and Education. Students, professors and scientists from scientific research and educational institutions throughout Croatia participate in the creation of the journal. Along with Reaktor, SSHDKI’s biggest conceptual project is Colors of Engineering, in which students travel through Croatia to visit primary and secondary schools and with their experiments show science to younger generations in a fun and accessible way. So far, SSHDKI has successfully implemented more than 30 projects in which various topics were discussed. Some of the projects are Business Week, the First Conference on the European Clean Energy Transition, the Cancer Congress, Waste to Energy, Innovation for You.
