    Prof. Spomenka Kobe, http://nano.ijs.si, sem Znanstvena Svetnica na Institutu Jožef Stefan, na Odseka za nanostrukturne materiale, ki sem ga prej vodila 16 let.
    Od samega začetka trajanja moje zaposlitve na Institutu sem bila vključena v razvojno raziskovalno delo za industrijo. Za delo »Tolmačenje vpliva mikrostrukture na magnetne lastnosti materialov« sem leta 1987 prejela Nagrado sklada Borisa Kidriča in leta 1992 Nagrado Republike Slovenije za »Izum postopka za toplotno obdelavo magnetov iz zlitine samarija in kobalta«. Za razvojno raziskovalno delo sem prejela tudi dve inovacijski verigi v tovarni Iskra Feriti za uspešna prenosa tehnologij v proizvodnjo. Kot gostujoča znanstvenica sem delovala na Twente University Enschede, Nizozemska in na University of Western Australia, Perth, Australia.
    Moja najpomembnejša mednarodna referenca je, da sem v Sloveniji ustanoviteljica in nosilka področja trajno-magnetnih materialov na osnovi redkih zemelj in elementov prehoda. Sem tudi dolgoletna predstavnica Slovenije v Mednarodnem Svetovalnem Odboru za to področje.
    Iz celotnega raziskovalno razvojnega opusa je razvidna predvsem kompleksnost mojega delovanja. Na svojem področju aktivnosti sem združevala in še združujem raziskovalno, aplikativno in izobraževalno delo. Rezultati tega dela se kažejo v kvalitetnih in odmevnih osnovnih raziskavah, kar dokazujejo tako objavljena dela v tujih revijah z visokim faktorjem citiranosti za področje materialov, kot tudi vabljena predavanja na tujih univerzah in mednarodnih ter domačih konferencah. Sem redna profesorica na Mednarodni podiplomski šoli »Jožefa Stefana«, zadnje tri leta sem svetovalka dekana za industrijo.
    V obdobju zadnjih desetih let sem svoje raziskovalno področje poleg magnetnih materialov na osnovi intermetalnih zlitin redkih zemelj in elementov prehoda razširila še na kompleksne zlitine v okviru sodelave v Evropski mreži odličnosti NoE CMA (Complex Metallic Alloys); skupina za magnetne materiale, ki sem jo vodila do leta 2020, se je v tem času vključila v dve novi raziskovalni področji t.j. magnetokalorični materiali in kvazikristali za shranjevanje vodika.
    Vrhunec moje znanstvenoraziskovalne kariere na področju trajno magnetnih materialov na osnovi redkih zemelj in elementov prehoda je bil pridobljen evropski projekt ROMEO v vrednosti 4 mio EUR, ki sem ga tudi vodila in smo ga uspešno zaključili konec leta 2015. Končni produkt tega projekta je bila na IJS razvita nova inventivna tehnologija izdelave trajnih magnetov na osnovi Nd-Fe-B, ki omogoča 16 kratni prihranek pri porabi težkih redkih zemelj (TRZ), ki so na svetovni lestvici kritičnih surovin visoko na prvem mestu. Pri tem smo magnetne lastnosti celo izboljšali preko do takrat najvišjih doseženih končnih lastnosti. Tehnologijo sem v okviru projekta skupaj s sodelavci prenesla v partnersko tovarno Vacuumschmelze, Hanau, Nemčija. Prototipna motorja narejena iz teh magnetov sta bila izdelana za električno vozilo (Valeo) in vetrno elektrarno (Siemens).
    Vzporedno z raziskavami in vodenjem področja trajno magnetnih materialov sem pomembno prispevala k ustanovitvi Mednarodnega Laboratorija LIA med francoskim CNRS / University Lorraine in IJS in sem bila do leta 2017 tudi slovenska direktorica Laboratorija. Mednarodni Laboratorij ima veliko perspektivo ne le v osnovnih raziskavah, temveč že dosedanji rezultati kažejo tudi atraktivne magnetne in katalitske lastnostih nekaterih novih materialov z vizijo praktične uporabe.
    Iz priložene COBISS podatkovne baze je razvidno, da imam 736 bibliografskih zadetkov od tega 185 znanstvenih člankov, 9 strokovnih člankov, 37 vabljenih predavanj, 7 poglavij v knjigi, 7 patentov (2 mednarodna), 2 mednarodni patentni prijavi in več kot 10 mentorstev za magisterije in doktorate. K popularizaciji znanosti sem prispevala s 3 poljudnimi članki in 7 intervjuji.

    Leta 2019 sem prejela prestižno nagrado »Fray International Sustainability Award« za “Leadership in development new technologies that contribute to global sustainable development in the environment, economy, and social points of view” (vodenje razvoja novih tehnologij, ki prispevajo k globalnemu trajnostnemu razvoju okolja, gospodarstva in družbe). V mojo čast je v okviru »SIPS 2019 Sustainable Processing Summit & Exhibition« potekal eden od simpozijev “Kobe International Symposium on Science of Innovative and Sustainable Alloys and Magnets”.

    Sustainable business can only be achieved through strong collaboration, sharing, and supporting, developing people to grow high performing teams.
    In my current role I enable sales, customer support teams and leaders at all levels.
    Aviation has been my passion since I did my PPL .I am highly impressed by Advanced Air Mobility solutions. Aviation has never faced such of changes that is facing now, and I am thrilled to be part of it with Manta Aircraft, supporting sustainable aviation globally.

    Passionate about selling and growing the business, pioneering new business territories and challenging the status quo.
    Entrepreneurial mindset, curious, determined and bold, resilient in action with strong business acumen.
    Believe in challenging people out of their comfort zone in every aspect of business to achieve beyond expected.

    Business development is not a job for me, it’s like a drug that gives me necessary kick to perform. Over 15 years of business development in growing new markets for – behavioural development company Gustav Kaeser and the last 6 years we added to our portfolio operational consulting pillar under the global brand Hansen Beck. Due to my economics and engineering background most of my clients are from industrial sector, ICT, financial and logistics, developing their business & sales strategies and implementing it in practice, including relevant development of people. Under operational consulting I led development of strategy, it’s implementation (set strategic goals, follow up and follow through) and development of people to buy in & engage to it.

    11 years of geographical pioneering and business development experience; opening new offices and developed solid client base in Turkey and Middle East Region, as well as find strategic partners in KSA, and develop agreement with them.
    Developing business in the Middle East means building relationships through formal and informal networking, flexibility in negotiating, building trust and establish transparency at operational and C-level and going beyond conventional technical negotiations.

    Aviation has always been my passion and consulting projects with Aerospace industry were rather a result of it. Sustainability is the second one and if I can match both, there is a winning formula for success.
    I am highly impressed by Advanced Air Mobility solutions (hybrid propulsion trains, (e)VTOL/ STOL and environment friendly propulsion solutions), especially when we think of the whole value chain not only being an OEM manufacturer.
    Half of my current job time I dedicated to get investments and establish supply chain for US aviation start up LuftCar, developing hybrid propulsion powered flying car. In March 2022 I joined Italian company in advanced air mobility Manta Aircraft, developing business, strategic partnerships and grow the advanced Air mobility ecosystem in the Middle East and Africa region.

    Why pioneering and exploring beyond traditional gives me a kick? The life experiences gave me resilience and ability to regain cognitive function quickly, assess new situation, and take goal-directed action fast. Therefore, opening new markets, negotiating with public and private sector, when hurdles on the way appears, is the area where I feel myself good and challenged. High energy, persistence, and passion to achieve set goals are my attitude when collaborating and selling concepts internally or externally.
    What gives me highest satisfaction is end- to-end responsibility, from identifying business opportunities to delivering it. I cannot imagine a job without revenue generating responsibility, developing new business opportunities, and searching for inventive solutions for client’s and current business challenges.
