News / Modernisation of Emergency Medical Institute in Belgrade with the support of the EU
After more than half a century, the City of Belgrade Emergency Medical Institute will be reconstructed thanks to a project financed by the European Union and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). The project will include works to improve energy efficiency, as well as the addition and expansion of existing facilities for an additional 4000m2. Energy efficiency improvement measures include thermal insulation, improved heating, ventilation and cooling systems, as well as the introduction of energy-efficient lighting systems.
The Agreement on the donation of the European Union in the amount of 8.8 million euros in grants was signed today in the presence of the Mayor of Belgrade Aleksandar Šapić, the Ambassador of the European Union to the Republic of Serbia Emanuele Giaufret, the EBRD Director for the Western Balkans Matteo Colangeli, the Minister of Health Danica Grujičić and the Minister of European Integration Tanja Miščević.
In addition to signing of the donation, a tender for reconstruction works of the Emergency Medical Institute was also announced today. The European Union grants, as well as a previously secured EBRD loan of 5 million euros will be used to finance works on the reconstruction and expansion of the capacities of the Emergency Medical Institute building. The total expected costs of investment are around 14 million euros. In addition, the European Union provided a donation of 1.7 million euros for technical assistance to the City of Belgrade for support in the implementation of the project, supervision of construction works and assistance in reviewing the potential for energy efficiency and introducing a sustainable financing mechanism in the City.
