Basic Info

Description

ZRC SAZU is leading institution of the project »DEVELOPMENT OF RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE FOR THE INTERNATIONAL COMPETITIVENESS OF THE SLOVENIAN DEVELOPMENT OF RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE SPACE – RI-SI-EPOS«. Participating partners are: Geološki Zavod Slovenije, Univerza v Ljubljani FGG and Inštitut Jožef Stefan. Contract number C3330-19-952056 between ZRC SAZU and MIZŠ was signed on 22.7.2019.

The operation is co-financed by the Republic of Slovenia, the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport and the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund.  This operation is being implemented within the framework of the Operational Programme for the Implementation of the European Cohesion Policy 2014-2020, under Priority Axis 1: "International competitiveness of research, innovation and technological development in line with smart specialization for greater competitiveness and greening of the economy"; Priority Investment 1.1: "Strengthening infrastructure for research and innovation and the capacity to develop excellence in this area, as well as to promote competent centers, especially those of European importance"; Specific Objective 1.1.1: "Effective use of research infrastructure and development of knowledge/competences for better national and international cooperation in the Knowledge Triangle".

Operation is part of »Načrt razvojnih programov« (NRP) no. 3330-19-1142. EU contribution is 80%.
