A Memorandum on Scientific-Research Cooperation between the Split Clinical Hospital Center and this scientific institution was signed on Friday at the Faculty of Medicine, with the support of prof. Dr. Dragana Ljutić, Rector of the University of Split. This marks the beginning of joint activities of the institutions mentioned above for preparing the new research and innovation infrastructure project, called the Research Medical Center Split (IMCS), reports Slobodna Dalmacija on February 8, 2019. 

“Linking scientific and clinical work in the future Center will significantly enhance the quality of scientific and research work in the field of biomedicine and health care, for the benefit of all inhabitants of Split, the County and Croatia,” emphasized prof. Dr. Julija Meštrović, Director of KBC Split, with a great understanding and approval of all participants and the benefit of the patients.

“This is a celebration and great thing for the whole country. We have already proved that we are excellent and now we will be even better. From today, we are moving to its realization with the serious intention of completing the project. We will include all our colleagues and institutes, and I believe that colleagues from around the world will want to participate in this,” the rector added.

Prof. Dr Zoran Đogaš, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, emphasized that this institute will raise research and biomedical capacities to an incredibly high level and become a very prestigious place in the world.

“The research that will be done here will lead to a common relationship between clinicians and other scientists, and we will transform our core knowledge into practical knowledge, which means raising the standard of patient care and the quality of overall health care. Finally, the project will open up opportunities for many new jobs, which will keep our youth in Croatia. As early as tomorrow, our graduate doctors can say ‘you have a job here’,” said Đogaš.

The next step is to apply to the Ministry of Science to building and equip the IMCS, which will be located on the southern side of the Križine hospital, and the project would cost about 50 million kuna. It should be funded with money from EU funds. The institute would participate and cooperate with research teams from both institutions, and many scientists from all over Croatia and around the world will also visit Split.
