The project includes the construction of a 15,000 square meters facility and the purchase of medical and research equipment, as the money will be secured from the European Regional Development Fund, the Commission said in a press release.

The project’s goal is to keep medical researchers and practitioners in Croatia, as well as to increase hospital staff by 67%.

The new center will have an eco-friendly design, as waste and water consumption will be reduced. It should be completed by February 2022, according to Europa.eu, the EUʼs official website.
