Yesterday, in the City Hall of the Municipality of Klis, a presentation took place outlining the preliminary design of construction for the University Campus in Klis. Some components of the university included a technology park and related facilities to the municipal council of the Municipality of Klis.

Dalmacija News reports that the Mayor of Klis Jacov Vetma introduced councilors to the idea of cooperation of the Municipality of Klis with the Split University and explained the importance of this project for the whole municipality. The councilors unanimously made a decision to support the idea and authorize the Mayor to continue to work and represent the interests of the municipality of Klis in this project, stated Josip Didović, president of the Council of the Municipality of Klis.


The session was attended by the rector of the University of Split and the new president of the Rectors’ Conference of Croatia, whose councilors presented the idea and the need for the University, whose potential is precisely the expansion and dispersion campus in neighboring municipalities and cities. The tendency of universities to expand the capacity of 200%, providing high-quality studies, affordable accommodation and practices in one place, is a model of success and sustainability.


The Klis campus, aside from accommodation facilities, plans to open a new study of Mediterranean cultures, greenhouses for which students can immediately and practically apply what they have learned, university restaurant where all products will be used for the nutrition of students, European University Hospital, a building for IT start-ups, and more. But how to get funded?


“Giving anything over 200,000 square meters, regardless of the purpose and goal, is very sensitive, and a legal question. There is no margin for error and therefore we will, with the Municipality of Klis, Rector Anđelinović, and the entire team of University of Split, take all steps as a better organization with responsibilities, to prepare this project as the most important in the administration, for the means of which the EU has for such investments,” concluded Vetma.
