Igor Emri is a Chair Professor of Mechanics at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Ljubljana and President of the Institute for Sustainable Innovative Technologies, EEIG. He has developed an innovative theoretical-experimental approach, known as Knauss-Emri model, to study the non-linear behavior of time-dependent materials. His current research activities are focused on non-linear time-dependent behavior of dissipative systems with the emphasis on behavior of solid polymers and their nano-, micro-, and macro-composites and granular systems. He is one of the founders and Editor-in-Chief of the international journal »Mechanics of Time Dependent Materials«, published by Springer. He is a fellow grade member of the Society of Experimental Mechanics (USA), Russian Academy of Engineering, Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, European Academy of Sciences and Arts, European Academy of Sciences, Slovenian Academy of Engineering, Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts, and Honorary Member of the Ukrainian Academy of Engineering. He is the Chairman of the Science Europe Scientific Advisory Committee, and a past president of the Society of Experimental Mechanics and the International Committee on Rhelogy (ICR).
