Rector of the Palacký University Jaroslav Miller announced the ninth call for Proof-of-Concept (PoC) projects. Applicants can request up to one million Czech crowns to support their scientific activities leading to commercial use. Applications can be submitted by March 19th.
“PoC projects are an opportunity for academics to get scientific results into real practice. In addition to financial support, an individual plan for commercialization, and technology transfer consultants, they will be able to do what they are interested in, “said Petr Kubečka, Head of Technology Transfer at the UP Science Technology Park.
All projects of scientific teams that are not already funded from other sources and are aimed at obtaining a functional prototype, proven technology, industrial protection, or licensing of a commercial subject can be supported in the ninth call.
Applicants may be only employees or PhD students who will be in an employee or student relationship with Palacký University throughout the project. Applicants may apply by the March 19th. The expected start of winning projects is June 1, 2018.
On February 27, an informative seminar will be held for interested applicants in the Science and Technology Park. For more information about the call, PoC projects, including registration for the seminar, click HERE.
