Mission/Objectives: 

The Cluster of Applied Earth Sciences uniquely combines – as the only one in Central Eastern Europe – the knowledge, researches and developments of the discipline.

CAPES deals with two large fields of activity:

 - the export of instruments and devices, and

 - the export of its complex research infrastructural service activities.

The union of companies as a cluster enables to provide comprehensive services for corporate groups, for the main contractors of international large investments and for the project management of joint international projects.
