CENTRIC relates to the “WIDESPREAD-2014-1 TEAMING” topic of the main pillar on “Spreading excellence and widening participation”. The project clearly addresses each specific challenge as defined by the call.
Centric will deal with the management and control of the territory as an esential pre-conditions for a very wide range of economic and social aspects. This is done by promoting scientific excellence in domains and scientific disciplines, such as: airbone and satellite imagery processing, 3D/4D geospatial big data analysis and analytics, linked geospatial data, photogrammetry, surveying, simulation, feature extraction, land classification, change detection and territorial monitoring from remotely sensed data.
The whole project has been based on the creation of long-lasting joint venture between partners from both advanced and low performing countries, including institutional cooperation among the Romanian Cadastre Agency and the counterpart in Trentino Italy, considered as a best practice at the EU level.
The project aims the creation of a new cluster, a research and innovation ecosystem built around the CENTRIC Centre of Excellence and Innovation Centre, where the various players (research centres, public administration and industry) can benefit from significant “know-how” transfer from other EU countries by leveraging on a number of successful and innovation-related concepts.
