EU Research Promotion

Using a broad range of information activities, the TC ASCR contributes to a higher participation of Czech teams in European research and development, especially in the framework programmes of the European community for research and technological development (FP).

These activities are mainly covered by the National Information Centre for European Research (NICER) project, which is financed by the Ministry of Youth, Education and Sports from the EUPRO programme, and organised by a team of thematically-oriented national contact points (NCP) for the FP. The team is a part of the Czech National Information Network (NINET) for the FP, which associates national professional and regional contact organisations and is a part of the European NCP network.

Main activities:

  • Specialised consulting for Czech research institutions regarding preparations and management of international research projects
  • Identifying partners for investigation consortia
  • Mass information activities – conferences, seminars, trainings
  • Operation of specialised websites
  • Publication of electronic and printed information materials
  • Publication of the Echo magazine, specialising in issues of European research and development
  • Monitoring and analyses of the CR’s participation in the framework programmes for use by the public administration

Further information about the Technology Centre’s activities related to the support for the CR’s participation in the European Research Area can be found at the specialised website of the National Information Centre for European Research.
