  • The innovation environment of the Czech Republic is further enhanced by the Czech government and EU support.
  • In 2004 the country became a member of the European Union, which spurred a fundamental increase of support for science and research.
  • Along with its access to EU Structural Funds, the country has been able to surpass the EU average investment in R&D, reaching 2% of GDP in 2014.
  • Comprehensive national policies are another key element of the country’s excellent R&D environment.

Research & Development Funding

In the Czech Republic

  • Czech R&D is not driven only by the country’s history of excellent science, but also by extensive state support. Financial aid comes from national and European resources and is administered by a number of mostly national institutions (Czech Science Foundation, Technology Agency of the Czech Republic, seven Czech ministries; with the exception of Horizon 2020).
  • The main forms are target-oriented funding (mostly as grants, assigned in the form of subsidies and loans) and institutional funding (which mostly supports institutions and their development, but also includes indirect support in the form of tax deduction of R&D-related costs).
