The main goal of SLICE3D is to strengthen the research and innovation capacities of Slovenia in the acquisition, processing and modelling of geospatial data. This will be realized through education programs and R&D projects, resulting in tangible results supplied to market players, thereby enabling them to obtain and maintain a competitive advantage. The ambition is to create a Centre of Excellence on geospatial data in Slovenia which will achieve a strong long-term scientific presence at international level.
