Results of Innovation vouchers programme Prague

In April we informed you about the possibility of joining the programme Innovation vouchers in Prague. The call for applications was held in May 2013. In mid-August went through the lottery selection of applications for participation of Prague´s Mayor Tomas Hudeček . Into program were eventually enrolled a total of 146 businesses. There was 58 winning companies who shared the total grant of 10 million, which was allocated for the first year of the programme.

VZLÚ was represented  by department of Structure strenght, which was part of the 4 project proposals. Specifically, there were two proposals in the field of materials testing and two more in the field of dental protectors used in contact sports. VZLÚ succeeded in two applications focused on material tests. Collaboration with industrial partners will be launched in near future. Industrial partners, who succeed in the Innovation voucher programme, will be able to order their services at VZLÚ according to this financial aid program.

Due to the success of this year's Innovation Vouchers city representatives promised that next year will be significantly higher provisioning support. VZLÚ is planing to involve into program in the coming years.
