Strategic objective of the project is appreciate in the support of the excelence integrated research of the Earth’s geosphere with accent on the development of the required infrastructure, international cooperation and education. The realisation of the project strikingly contribute to improvement of the laboratory equipment of the research institutions in Banská Bystrica and Košice regions (Geological Institute of the Slovak Academy of Sciences – branch Banská Bystrica, Institute of Geotechnics, Slovak Academy of Sciences Kočice and Technical University Zvolen), which will result in a higher quality of the scientific output and potencial in participation in international research projects. The project has got forth goals:

  • Analysis of the global changes and their impacts to ecosystems and biodiversity of the Earth
  • Research of the geodynamic procesess and conditions of the earth crust formation
  • The study of the biogeochemical procesess and environmental aspects of the protection of the mining landscape
  • The study of the mater-energetic flows in the upper part of the geosphere.
