As a part of its main activities, CKTT manages projects supporting the knowledge and technology transfer. The currently on-going projects are the Development of R&D Capacities of Charles University and GAMA 2 (including GAMA 2 Covid).
During the years 2012-2019, total funds allocation for the relevant projects amounted almost 140 mil. Kč
Since 2020, we have been managing projects with the total funding of almost 80 mil. Kč
We have created the University Innovation Network and gained he opportunity to intensively educate about the knowledge transfer thanks to the project OP “Research, development, education“
Following this, we managed to support the university-wide project the Development of R&D Capacities of Charles University, which includes the advancement of human resources in the field of knowledge and technology transfer, as well as cross-sectional collaboration as its leading activities
Since autumn 2019, there is the educational online course focused on the project magament, as well as the social and technological innovation. The course was developed in the international collaboration under the support of ReSTI project from programme Interreg.
Totally, 25 ideas went through the proof-of-concept process, which also included the estimation of the commercial potential and intellectual property protection, thanks to the GAMA project (under the support of TA CR). In case of some projects, the negotiations with potential investors (about technology licensing or selling) were initiated
The follow-up project GAMA 2 started in the January 2020 and will last another 3 years. We estimate that it will fund the proof-of-concept development of 19 further projects
University-wide project, which supports the improvement of the environment for research-relevant education, as well as the development of human resources in R&D.
