The concept for the project “CENTER OF SCIENTIFIC GEOPARTERIAL ANALYSIS, SATELLITE CALCULATIONS AND LABORATORIES FOR TESTING/CERTIFICATION OF GEOMATIC PRODUCTS (CENAGIS)” was developed in early 2014. The application and evaluation procedure took nearly 5 years. 

The project brief was submitted in 2014. Subsequently, further details were developed, and the Project was subject to evaluation. As a result, the Project was included in 2015 in the list of the so-called Territorial Contract for the Mazowieckie Voivodeship.

The Project received EU funding under the competition no. RPMA.01.01.00-IP.01-14-061/17 from Measure 1.1 Research and development activities of scientific units, project type: “Support for research and development infrastructure of scientific units”- of the Regional Operational Program of the Mazovian Voivodeship 2014-2020, decided in April 2018. The call was announced and conducted by the Mazovian Unit for Implementation of EU Programs.

The agreement for subsidizing the project was signed on December 11, 2018 by the Marshal of the Mazowieckie Voivodeship – Mr. Adam Struzik and the JM Rector of the Warsaw University of Technology – Mr. Jan Szmidt. The aim of the project was to create a center for geospatial scientific analysis using the latest technologies, in particular geoinformatics and IT allowing remote access to unique research laboratories for a wide range of scientists and cooperating innovative technology companies.

The IT infrastructure (CENAGIS Platform) was launched in 2022.

The laboratories in Jozefoslaw were put into operation in May 2023.
