As we approach the end of the first year of infrastructure works under the O-ZIP project in Zagreb, it's time to take a step back and assess the progress made in a year full of challenges, especially weather-related setbacks. Nonetheless, progress on the construction site is both evident and promising.
The O-ZIP project is making steadfast progress. Activities are unfolding as planned, with the team fervently focused on ensuring quality and timeliness in every phase of construction.
The Government of the Republic of Croatia has adopted the proposal issued by the Ministry of Science and Education (MSE) on increasing the allocation for the project 'Open Scientific Infrastructural Platforms for Innovative Applications in the Economy and Society' (O-ZIP), the capital structural project of the Ruđer Bošković Institute (RBI). The financing of the 72 million euro worth project is foreseen within the European Commission's Operational Program 'Competitiveness and Cohesion' for the financial period 2014-2020 (OPCC).
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.
The Ruđer Bošković Institute (RBI) signed a contract with Lavčević d.d. and Lavčević inženjering d.o.o. for the implementation of construction works within the framework of the structural project Open Scientific Infrastructure Platform for Innovative Applications in Economy and Society (O-ZIP).
As part of the project 'Open Scientific Infrastructure Platforms for Innovative Applications in Economy and Society' (O- ZIP), the Ruđer Bošković Institute (IRB) in Zagreb has acquired and put into operation an impressive transmission electron microscope, the JEM -1400 Flash. This high-tech device worth EUR 600,000.00 is the latest achievement in the field of scientific research and equipment in the Republic of Croatia.
Dr David M. Smith, the Director of the Ruđer Bošković Institute (IRB), and Dr Ivanka Jerić, Deputy Director and Project Coordinator for O- ZIP, today visited the construction site of the Martinska Research Station, accompanied by the Project Construction Manager, Mr Damir Ivšić, and representatives of the team of consultants led by Mr Nino Kovačić.
Significant progress has been made in the renovation of the Martinska Research Station, a key component of the O-ZIP project to strengthen capacity and promote sustainable development and management of the Adriatic karst coastal area, in line with both national legislation and EU directives.
