Centres of Research Excellence in the Republic of Croatia

Centre of Research Excellence gathers and crosslinks the best scientists in a particular field at a national level that are focused on contemporary research topic. They also have to be internationally competitive and recognizable group in terms of quality and scope of scientific production, capable of effective international cooperation and have to give significant contribution to the development of science, higher education and the economy at the national level.

Research organization or its organizational part or a group of scientists are declared to be a Centre of Research Excellence by Minister of Science, on the proposal of the National Council for Science, Higher Education and Technology Development, with the consent of the named scientific organization or a group of scientists and based on evaluation made in compliance with the law that regulates quality assurance in science and higher education and procedure which must include international assessment.

The objective of the establishment of Centres of Research Excellence is to identify and evaluate researchers and research that are innovative, have the potential of the discovery, that are possible milestones in research and, at the same time, are internationally relevant in terms of quality and vision and in line with the strategic needs and priorities of the Republic of Croatia and objectives of the Strategy Europe 2020 and Strategy for Education, Science and Technology.

Centres of Research Excellence are established for a period of five years. Status of the Centre may be prolonged for the next five years, based on a new evaluation process.

The following 13 Centres of Research Excellence have been established in the Republic of Croatia in the period 2014-2015:
