GAMA



The Project TG01010108 “Support to the process of commercialization of results of research and development at the Charles University in Prague“ has been implemented with the financial support of the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic“


Background information

The GAMA program of the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic focuses on verification of results of applied research and on experimental development from the viewpoint of their practical application on the market. It is aimed primarily on the proof of concept stage.

In the first call the Charles University in Prague obtained a subsidy amounting to 20 935 000 CZK for the period 2014–2019 which will be gradually distributed among partial projects implemented at individual workplaces of the University.

The overall coordination and administration of the project TG01010108 “Support to the process of commercialization of results of research and development at the Charles University in Prague“ is provided for by the Center for Knowledge and Technology Transfer of the Charles University, while responsibility for implementation of specific partial projects rests directly with the faculties with workplaces involved in the project.



Target group of the program and the objective of support

The overall objective of the project at the Charles University is to support the process of practical application of results of research and development and to find a commercial use for them. The funding for partial projects is allocated by the University Rector based on recommendations made by the Council for Commercialization of the Charles University.

Support from the GAMA project is intended for workers (or students) from Charles University workplaces generating results in applied research and experimental development with a commercialization potential. In the fifth round of the internal selection procedure the projects will be supported with recommended amounts from 200 000 CZK to 830 000 CZK per one partial project.


The result of each partial project should be verification of functionality of an intended method, prototype, functional sample etc. , including assurance of necessary protection of intellectual property and industrial rights and preparation of further steps to practical application on the market. Funding from the GAMA program of the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic is not intended to support basic research.


The supported projects shall produce at least one type of result indicated below:

P – patent

G – technically realizable results – prototype, functional sample

Z – pilot plant, verified technology

R – software

F – industrial and utility design

Terminology – projects, programs, sub-programs

The GAMA program is one of many programs in the portfolio of the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic. The program is divided into two sub-programs while the second sub-program has not been launched yet, i.e. no public competition has been opened. The first sub-program, the one applicable to us, has been aimed at research organizations, including the Charles University. By now, two public competitions have been opened. The Charles University, represented by its the Center for Knowledge and Technology Transfer, applied for participation in the first competition back in 2014 and it was able to obtain financial support until 2019. The faculties or individual researchers (i.e. university workers) cannot apply for participation in the second public competition or subsequent competitions. Therefore the program is referred to as the GAMA project (sometimes also GAMA UK). All interactions within the University are conducted between workers of the Center for Knowledge and Technology Transfer and researchers and the Center subsequently communicates with the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic.
