ZAG is equipped for testing from materials in nano-scale to structural elements in full-scale, including testing of fire resistance and reaction to fire. In the current Fire Laboratory, all standardised testing can be done on test specimens of standard sizes. The Fire Laboratory, which will serve as the central FRISSBE ERA Chair infrastructure, is in the process of upgrading. In early 2022 it will move to the new facility nearby Logatec, which will serve as the FRISSBE ERA Chair headquarters. The timing perfectly coincides with the ERA Chair holder selection and ERA Chair team recruitment, as foreseen in WP 1 and WP 2.
The facility is located 35 km south of Ljubljana in the direction of Koper, where InnoRenew CoE and the University of Primorska, both being part of the FRISSBE ecosystem, are located.

The investment is co-funded by the European Cohesion fund ERDF, Republic of Slovenia, Ministry of Education, Science and Sport and ZAG (the beneficiary). The timing of the infrastructure completion and operative launch of the EAR Chair provide perfect alliance of H2020 and ERDF funds and create a good opportunity for maximising the effect of funding.
