Summary

Following a successful application to Call RC.2.2.10 (translated title: Preparing infrastructural projects for the ERDF 2014-2020), the Institute received a grant in the amount of 4,268,330.00 HRK (85 % funded by the EU; 15 % by the Republic of Croatia). The aim of the project was to collect all of the documentation necessary to apply to the EU for funding the project of building the Research and Education Centre of Environmental Health and Radiation Protection (which implies the reconstruction of the central building of the Institute and its expansion southward), which the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports had pre-selected and added to its list of priority projects for Croatian research infrastructure. The project was implemented in full and with great success, making the Institute a prepared candidate for funding. Once the Ministry and other relevant bodies prepare and open a call for funding the construction of the proposed building, the Institute plans to apply.
