The Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts (ZRC SAZU) was established as an independent public research institution in 1981. It provided an institutional structure for a number of institutes that had already existed for several decades, organized as research departments of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts.

After forty years of turbulent, exciting, and successful transformations, ZRC SAZU has become the leading research and educational center in Slovenia, mainly in the humanities and social sciences, and one of the most prominent academic institutions in central and southeastern Europe. More than three hundred researchers work within eighteen interconnected institutes that create a dynamic transdisciplinary research network.

ZRC SAZU researchers conduct outstanding research that spans from linguistics to philosophy and archaeology to biology. Their findings are of tremendous importance for a better understanding of cultural, social, and natural phenomena in Slovenia and the world. Apart from publishing their results in academic publications, research groups also engage in data collection, documentation, and presentation to audiences beyond the academic sphere.

Over the last four decades, ZRC SAZU has become one of the driving forces of citizen engagement in science. It offers a forum for discussions of socially relevant issues and holds a series of public events. It was also central to the establishment of the Slovenian Branch of the March for Science, organizing protests in 2017, 2018, and 2019. In 2020, the Research Center of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts in a consortium with other Slovenian research institutions, launched a digital newspaper, Alternator: Misliti Znanost (Alternator: Think Science).
