ACROSS aims at unlocking and strengthening the research potential of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing of the University of Zagreb (UNIZG-FER) in the area of cooperative systems related to robotics, networked embedded systems and renewable energy systems.





The ultimate goal of ACROSS is to create a Centre of Research Excellence for Advanced Cooperative Systems within UNIZG-FER, which will be at the forefront of research and development of novel methodologies and advanced engineering approaches for cooperative systems.  
The ACROSS Project implements a coherent set of measures for execution of these objectives:

  • Recruitment of experienced researchers and a project manager
  • Upgrading research equipment and establishing three new laboratories
  • Exchange of know-how and experience with leading EU centres
  • Organisation of workshops and conferences
  • Ex-post evaluation of research potential by experts chosen by the EC
