Leading scientists, researchers, academics and business people from the Czech Republic are in London to talk about their advanced technologies and materials. They will highlight a range of specialist areas, including machine perception, speech technology, surface science and nanotechnologies, at a one-day seminar designed to promote commercial opportunities and investment.
The seminar is organised by CzechInvest, the Czech government’s investment and business development agency, in co-operation with UK Trade and Investment and the Czech Embassy in London. Its aim is to provide a forum for British businesses and others interested in hearing about and discussing the latest technological developments.
Entitled ‘Advanced Technologies & Materials in the Czech Republic’, the seminar is part of the Czech-British Technology and Innovation Days 2009, a four-day programme for industry, academia, investors and those seeking R & D joint ventures in advanced technologies and materials. Czech delegates are participating in the UK NanoForum & Emerging Technologies event at the London Hilton on Park Lane Hotel on November 3rd/4th and are visiting Surrey Research Park and the University of Surrey’s research centres on November 6th.
The seminar will be opened by the ambassador, Mr Michael Zantovsky, with Mr Nick Stuart, Head of Science and Innovation, UK Trade and Investment, and Mrs Dana Hunatova, ambassador-at-large for science, technology and education, Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Mr. Petr Kalas, advisor to the Prime Minister.
“This seminar provides a unique opportunity for British businesses and academics to hear about some of the extraordinary technological advances which are taking place in the Czech Republic,” said Hana Chlebna, director of UK & Ireland operations, CzechInvest.
“We very much hope that new mutually-beneficial business ventures will develop as a result.”
