The Gemini concept is a model for cooperation between parallel research groups that has the objective of coordinating their strategic efforts, thus raising our level of quality and creating larger, more robust research groups.
The vision of the Gemini Centres is that their milieux should be international leaders in all respects, from teaching, through basic and applied research, to commercialistation.
