Abstract
Back4Future provides a platform to deepen the collaboration between the nanoscience and nanotechnology cluster in Brno with partners in the Vienna area: TU Wien and BOKU Wien. The project aims to find synergies of research´, and to both deepen and broaden the research areas in Brno. CEITEC is a highly successful advanced materials and technology center in Brno specialized on cutting edge applications of nanotechnology. Within the consortium the cutting edge infrastructure and expertise in this area is paired with advanced research in materials science and life sciences in the nanotechnology area at TU Wien and BOKU Wien. This should lead to increasing scientific capabilities, improving of innovation performance and maximizing chances to obtain competitive funding. Moreover, the innovation culture should be boosted in general, utilized in more intensive cooperation with high-tech companies and spread to substantially increased number of start-up companies in the South Moravia and nearby regions. We envisage extending these activities beyond the end of the Back4Future project and to the wider region, including Bratislava, Wroclaw and, possibly, Budapest, Linz, Graz and Prague. A tangible output from this TEAMING project is an application for a large-scale joint TEAMING project to be submitted to the call in 2018.
