It concentrates on collaboration with partners from Czech republic, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.The Technology Agency of the Czech Republic would like to inform all companies and research organisations about the first open call. It is planned on 17th April 2019 and deadline for project applications will be on 20th August 2019. Almost 33 million EUR will be distributed between now and 2024.
Projects are expected to last three to four years and have a maximum budget 5 million EUR. The maximum aid intensity per project is 80% of the total eligible costs. About 40 projects are estimated to be eligible for support. The programme is not thematically limited, and project proposals are expected from different areas. A part of the funding (about 5,2 million EUR) will be allocated to the projects with focus on carbon capture and storage. The preferred cooperation model is the participation of an enterprise in cooperation with a research organisation.
