The structural project "Open scientific infrastructural platforms for innovative applications in the economy and society" (O-ZIP) is a key part of the development strategy of Zagreb's Rudjer Boskovic Institute (RBI) that will make this leading Croatian research institution a 21st century institute, it was said at a project presentation on Friday.
Experiments in astrophysics and nuclear and particle physics are crucial to analyse how the universe works.
Based on a large number of applications to vacant posts, the RBI is one of the most desirable employers among young researchers in Croatia.
O-ZIP is granted financial assistance for the preparation of project documentation through the Second Technology Development Project (STP II) based on the Decision of the Croatian Minister of Science, Education and Sport.
RBI scientists presented the key infrastructural projects of the Ruđer Bošković Institute (RBI) worth over 100 million euros of which only capital structural project Open Scientific Infrastructural Platforms for Innovative Applications in the Economy and Society (O-ZIP) is valued at more than 50 million euros.
Open Scientific Infrastructural Platforms for Innovative Applications in the Economy and Society (O-ZIP), valued at about € 50 million, is in the indicative list of infrastructural projects for the European Regional Development Fund 2014 - 2020 (ERDF).
