About us

We take the processes in heritage innovation one step further!

A vision to take the heritage innovation one step further led a team of young enthusiasts and entrepreneurs to establish the ID20 Institute. Based in Idrija, Slovenia, a former world’s second largest mercury mine and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the intertwinement of heritage and technology created the perfect environment for innovation in business, service and creativity sectors.
