Ústí for Tech:We’re seeking technology startups
We’re mapping technology-oriented startup companies and projects with commercial potential (not only) from the Ústí Region with the aim of jump-starting the region and its business environment.
Ústí for Tech is the web presentation of a project involving the mapping of regional capacities in the context of CzechInvest’s prepared Technology Incubation project. It is being implemented thanks to financial support from the Ústí Regional Fund.
In the future, the national Technology Incubation project will offer a combination of financial and non-financial tools for the development of technology start-ups in seven key areas – the creative industries, mobility, artificial intelligence and IT, the environment, space technologies, nuclear and particle physics, and crisis response. For each of these areas, a network of technology incubators and hubs will operate in the Czech Republic. The project is being prepared by CzechInvest in cooperation with partners from the public and private sectors.
Technology Incubation supports
Seven key areas
Incubation of projects focused on the cultural and creative industries, especially the video-game industry and applications involving innovative technologies in individual sectors (the project is not intended to support personal artistic work).
Sustainability and eco-innovation
Support and development of startups and implementation of smart solutions in the areas of the circular economy and ecological innovations (water, air, landscape – nature, waste, energy, construction, sustainable production and consumption).
Support and development of innovative projects in the area of mobility, focused primarily on autonomous driving systems, digitalisation and clean alternative fuels, as well as solutions for smart manufacturing, logistics, etc.
Support and development of business ideas in the area of AI and other innovative software, particularly for Big Data analysis and management.
Development of projects and startups focused on application of space technologies and support for their commercialisation.
Support for the transfer of knowledge and technologies from CERN to the Czech Republic and their commercialisation by means of support for the establishment of spin-offs and startups.
Smart crisis-response solutions
Support and development of innovative projects that bring forth smart solutions for the resilience of territorial units or, as the case may be, for maintaining the functionality and stability of the state at times of crisis and danger and in the event of a state of emergency (energy and cybernetic security, healthcare, education).
