As part of the project, BTC City was also the right setting for two exhibitions “Kozmična fotografija” (Cosmic photography) and “Genom”. Soon BTC City will also host the exhibition “Svetišče paleolitskih lovcev” (Sanctuary of Paleolithic hunters).
The Slovene Scientific Foundation didn’t hand only awards to the donators, but also the award “Prometej znanosti” for excellency in communicating as well as awards as recognitions to all the sponsors and partners for successful cooperation in the business year 2010.
