As part of CzechInvest's activities, we also focus on brownfields, i.e. disused sites, as an investment opportunity.

Brownfield sites offer considerable potential for further development, and their regeneration has a positive social and economic impact on the given area, even though their preparation is time-consuming and financially demanding. In order for there to be a simplified process of brownfield regeneration, CzechInvest offers both public and private entities the opportunity to cooperate on the implementation of the National Brownfield Regeneration Strategy, the goal of which is to regenerate the maximum number of brownfields in the Czech Republic and to ensure the creation of an effective environment for these projects.

What brownfields mean to us

  • Brownfields as an economic resource, business activity, and opportunity that must be exploited.
  • Brownfields as historical landmarks and part of the country's national, cultural and architectural heritage, which should be conserved and maintained.

We understand the brownfield concept as properties (land, buildings, sites) that:

  • are not effectively used, are neglected and are possibly contaminated;
  • cannot be effectively used unless they undergo a process of regeneration;
  • arise as the remnants of industrial, agricultural, residential, military or other activities.
