Representatives of Czech nanotechnology and innovative firms visited Istanbul in the first half of April 2018. The mission, which took place under the Czech Nanotechnology Association’s slogan “The Czech Republic is Nano”, was organised by CzechInvest in cooperation with the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in Istanbul. The members of the delegation included representatives of the Czech Nanotechnology Association, the Technical University of Liberec, the NanoProgress nanotechnology cluster and the companies Pardam and Nanospace. The purpose of the mission was to present the Czech Republic as one the global leaders in the nanotechnology sector to Turkish partners.
Turkish firms expressed extraordinary interest in Czech nanotechnologies and modern and innovative technologies. This success led to a pledge of preparation of an incoming mission of Turkish firms, which will attend the Future Port Prague festival in September 2018 and visit research and production centres in the Czech Republic.
