Bion Institute Back
University accreditation applies to courses from this institution
The Institute for Bioelectromagnetics and New Biology - the Bion Institute - is a private organisation founded in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, in 1990. It is mainly devoted to basic and applied research in the fields of bioelectromagnetics - the study of interaction between the electromagnetic fields and organisms. The Institute is supported by the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology, other ministries but it also collaborates with an industry, private organisations and individuals. It has not only a research role but an educational too, since it offers young researchers the possibility to attain MSc or PhD degrees. Institute has also a health promoting role because our current main research efforts are directed towards the investigation of a health enhancement through electrically imprinted information into microcrystals, water or composite materials.
Since 1992 the Bion Institute has been acknowledged as a research organisation by the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology. In 2004 it transformed into the limited liability company. In its first years the aim of the Bion Institute was to investigate the, as yet not very well understood, phenomenon of the influence of various electromagnetic fields on organisms. On the one hand, this research area covered the influence of weak non-ionizing electromagnetic fields on various living beings and, on the other, the still controversial question of endogenous coherent electromagnetic fields in organisms and their role in the living process. Research in such areas inevitably brought the Bion Institute close to complementary (traditional or alternative) medicine, and ultimately the Bion Institute obtained the status of a Cost B4 National Coordinator (from 1993 to 2000).
