SLICE3D (Slovenian Centre of Excellence on 3D Geodata) is a one-year project, financed in the framework of the Widening Actions under the Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation part of Horizon 2020. It is dedicated to the preparation of a scientific and innovation strategy together with the business plan for the setting-up of the Centre of Excellence. The main idea of the centre is to strengthen the research and innovation capacities of Slovenia in the fields of geospatial data acquisition, 3D/4D geospatial data modelling, and applications in geoinformatics. The ambition is to create a Centre of Excellence that will achieve strong medium- and long-term scientific presence at the European and international level.

Project goals

The main objectives of the one-year project are:

  • To define the vision and mission of the Centre of Excellence;
  • To establish a network of stakeholders for research and innovation projects and for knowledge transfer activities (involving geospatial industries, public authorities and the society);
  • To define a business model and to provide a detailed business plan for the future centre of excellence.
