Some of our rising partner network
The university centre Energy Units for Utilization of non Traditional Energy Sources (ENET) was supported by the EU grants of 2.1 Regional R&D Centres Programme Scheme in 2006 as a research institute by the Technical university Ostrava... ENET belongs to the excellent research infrastructure in the Czech Republic. The main objectives of the research agenda are:
The research area includes methods of measuring the environmental impact of the new R&D output. ENET cooperates with Vítkovice Holding, a.s., ArcelorMittal, a.s., FITE, a.s., Arrowline, a.s., CEZ, a.s. and various clusters – such as Moravian – Silesian Energy Cluster.
With the huge network of long established partnership, excellent R&D infrastructure and leading experts ENET belongs to the top R&D institute in the Czech Republic. The complex and interdisciplinary approach of R&D activities that includes technological solution of energy transport, procession, accumulation, economical, environmental and social assessment driven by practical needs creates an added value of ENET.
Zemědělský výzkum, spol. s r.o. Troubsko / Agriculture Research, Ltd. is a leading private research institute focusing on basic and applied research and development and is actively involved in numerous research projects in landscape management, resulting in new, desirable and environmentally acceptable management systems.
With facilities in the immediate vicinity of the Moravian capital and vast experience in the research and development, as well as with the management of large (inter)national research projects generates ZVT‘s capital, which is necessary for proper management and realisation of the international projects.
Agriculture Research, Ltd. was founded in 2003 and immediately embarked upon the research project “Genetic breeding and technological aspects of sustainable fodder crops production”. It is currently carrying out a number of publicly co-financed international research projects.
ZVT can provide a great variety of expert services connected with research and development. These are mainly in the area of agriculture and bioenergy, advisory and consultancy, and the application of new technologies. ART is the holder of the rights to more than 25 varieties, which are marketed through either through the direct sales of seeds or through assigning licenses to growers.
AVO is the only organization in Czech Republic representing applied research. AVO was founded in 1993 and it has over 80 active members – organizations that presents above 8 thousands researchers.
A key role of AVO is to support transfer of R&D results from research institions to the business sector, particularly SME, provide services which support innovation in busses and facilitate access to financing of innovation and applied research.
As AVO represents the Czech research capacities and currently involves about 80 institutions and 8000 experts involved in R&D - AVO gathers experts, experience, ideas. We are involved in projects focused on financial support of pree-seed activities and commercialisation of research and development results.. There are just a few topics that might be an interesting inspiration for you.
SKILLS+ project addresses the digital divide in using modern ICT technologies in SME between rural areas and urban agglomerations and the public policies in place aiming to reduce the competitive disadvantage of the first. These policies, mainly mainstream ERDF programmes, target SME and provide incentives to change their daily business routines, to introduce ecommerce and social media in their customer relations, or to incorporate the necessary skills in their personnel structures. This overall project objectives is underpinned by two sub objectives, notably the approval of project resulting recommendations to improve 11 public policies by adopting and implementing territorial action plans, and an increase of capacities of about 150 individuals participating in SKILLS+ activities (project staff and external stakeholders).
