Support for research and development: DELTA 2 programme opens

On 18 May 2022, the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic (TA CR) announced the fourth call within the DELTA 2 Programme for Support of Applied Research, Experimental Development and Innovation. The programme supports the transfer of international knowledge, sharing of good practice, and penetration into foreign markets.

The call is intended to facilitate international cooperation in applied research through joint projects of Czech entities supported by TA CR and foreign partners with the expected support from foreign institutions, all this on the condition that at least one foreign applicant from the location where the foreign partner organisation is located must participate in the project together with the Czech applicant. These locations include Brazil, the Republic of Korea, Israel, Taiwan, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, the USA, Québec, and Nigeria.

Applications are open to research organisations and businesses, and project proposals must be submitted in English. The lead applicant can submit an unlimited number of project proposals through the ISTA system.

There is no limit on the maximum amount of aid per project; the maximum aid intensity has been set at 74%. A total of CZK 250 million will be allocated for distribution under the call. TA CR provides support only to the Czech part of the consortium; foreign participants will be financed from foreign sources.

Other conditions

TA CR will only support project proposals that have not yet been and are currently not being addressed in whole or in part by another project. Double financing is not allowed.
