International Cooperation in R&D

The Czech Republic has actively adopted the European objective of creating a Europe-wide research area with special emphasis on cooperation between representatives of public research institutions and industry. CzechInvest is contributing to reaching this objective through ongoing support for foreign direct investment in R&D and by facilitating the formation of international as well as domestic R&D partnerships between universities, research institutes and the private sector. CzechInvest engages in organising special events and increasing the public’s awareness of R&D activities in the Czech Republic.

One of the main activities in this area is the organisation of so-called technology missions, which are usually narrowly sector-specific and tailored to their participants. They are based on the long-term need for greater internationalisation of Czech research and focus on progressive fields in which the Czech Republic has a lot to offer. CzechInvest also organises incoming R&D-focused missions from abroad. Its matchmaking expertise enables the establishment of long-lasting partnerships with considerable results.
