Nanotechnology & Advanced Materials


The dynamically developing nanotechnology sector is penetrating a full range of various fields. In the Czech Republic, this primarily involves the automotive, aviation, textile and chemical industries, which have a strong tradition and most to gain from the use of nanotechnology

The absolute majority of domestic firms involved in nanotechnology are companies that need to rapidly internationalise and find business partners abroad in order to be successful. Elmarco, TESCAN ORSAY HOLDING or Contipro are great examples of such companies.

An example of successful internationalisation of Czech institutions is the Memorandum on Cooperation between CzechInvest Agency and the Nano Technology Research Association of South Korea, which was concluded in 2012. In 2011, the Technical University of Liberec signed the Agreement on Cooperation with Shinshu University in Japan.
