Split’s Faculty of Civil Engineering Opens Two Specialised Laboratories Worth €11.3M

ZAGREB, 3 Oct, 2021 - Two laboratories specialising in hydrotechnical and earthquake research were formally opened earlier this week as part of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Geodesy (FGAG) of the University of Split.

The hydrotechnical laboratory will study coastal waters, underground streams and the karst phenomenon, while the other one will study the impact of earthquakes on different structures so that safer and more resilient buildings can be designed, FGAG Dean Nikša Jajac said at the opening ceremony.

The laboratories were opened as part of the project "From implementation of contemporary scientific and research infrastructure at FGAG to smart specialisation in green and energy efficient building".

The project was launched in June 2018 and financed from the European Regional Development Fund and the Competitiveness and Cohesion operational programme 2014-2020. Its value is HRK 84.5 million (€11.3m), of which 82.77 million comes from EU sources.
