The project to build the centre, which will be located on the premises of the city’s Križine Hospital, is worth slightly more than €80 million, including equipment.
The cost of design documentation is slightly less than HRK 8 million, with the entire amount provided by the EU.
The project partner is the Split Faculty of Medicine.
The future 15,500-square-metre Split Medical Research Centre will have eight laboratories – for human genetics, cell and tissue biology, bioinformatics, data analysis and statistics, cardiovascular and lifestyle medicine, tumors, neurodegenerative diseases and neuroscience, regenerative rehabilitation, and for the development of new drugs, devices, and clinical procedures.
The purpose of the project is the establishment of a major research-innovation structure which, officials of the KBC Split Hospital believe, will enhance the quality, scope and relevance of research activities in the field of biomedicine and health care, as well as enable integration with the joint pan-European network.
The future centre is expected to integrate research and clinical work of the Split Faculty of Medicine and the KBC Split Hospital.
