About UNITe project


The UNITe project is a result of the ambition of many scientists working at partner universities in the country to achieve a common organisational structure that will assist in the implementation of new ideas, projects, research and their dissemination. The general framework of the consortium will allow joint participation in various initiatives of the Ministry of Education and Science (MES), applications for calls under H2020-funded research, research and infrastructure projects, EU Structural Funds, MES Funds and other funding organisations and institutions.


The main goals of the UNITe project team are to support the coordination of scientific and educational activities in computer sciences at the partner universities and to work actively for the development of information and communication technologies in the public interest.

In the frame of the project implementation until year 2023, a functioning Centre of Excellence (CoE UNITe) as a highly competitive and internationally recognised research complex will be established which to meet the requirements for a modern infrastructure and a high level of scientific research in the priority area of the Innovation Strategy for Smart Specialisation (ISSS) - Informatics and ICT. The Centre will be of a Distributed Research Infrastructure (DRI) type.
