Scientific and Research Association for Art, Cultural and Educational Programmes and Technology

EPeKa Association was founded as an initiative to connect creators of cultural, artistic, educational, scientific and technological content for the European Capital of Culture 2012 project. One year later, EPeKa proposed the Municipality of Maribor to submit candidacy for the European Youth Capital title. Consequently, Maribor became the European Youth Capital in 2013. EPeKa continues the activity in the field of EU citizenship, EU values and intercultural dialogue.
