The CAAT project aims to apply fundamental research in oceanographic and atmospheric modeling that will be related to the flow and transport of surface and groundwater runoff to the Adriatic coastal waters to quantify the actual load on these water bodies and their potential auto-purification capabilities. The models and methodologies mentioned above are based on the previous research activities of all project partners.
The Faculty of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Geodesy (FGAG) is the project leader, and the partners are the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture (FESB), the Faculty of Science (PMF) and the Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries (IZOR).
The CAAT project directly contributes to the overall goal of the science and innovation investment program, which is to increase market oriented RDI (research, development, and innovation) activities. This funding program addresses market failures due to insufficient investment in RDI activities in the Republic of Croatia. It does so by supporting collaborative projects of scientific organizations and disseminating results to the business sector.
The total value of the project is HRK 7,156,744.99. Amount co-financed by the European Union with grants from the European Structural and Investment Funds in the financial period 2014-2020 amounts to HRK 6,034,318.11.
