Research and Innovation services

Based on the EU strategy to become the most dynamic competitive knowledge-based economy, Czech DEX is emphasising the so called „Knowledge triangle“ which consists of three core factors that support the efforts to meet the EU strategy. These factors are: research, education and innovation.

 The key objective of the research and innovation service is to provide counselling support in order to create information work space for research and innovation activites on the national as well as international level.

First and necessary step realized by Czech DEX is the identification and understanding of client´s needs. The most effective way has proven to be a brainstorming session with a client during which Czech DEX team experts are able to identify and gain insight into client´s requirements. The next step undertaken by Czech DEX is a promotion of the client to the most appropriate consortium based on identified needs. Finding and appointment of appropriate consortium is crucial for the client since it predetermines how the work uder the project will be going on during the implementation. Czech DEX then develops the full proposal under the coordination of the client.

Technology transfer can be considered as one of the key activities leading to the successful application of innovations in practice. The identification of research which has a potential commercial interest is very distinctive and complex task. Thanks to being part of the Grupo DEX network, Czech DEX is able to use the long-term experience in this field, which Grupo DEX owns.

Our clients are universities, research centres, individual researchers or inventors, who approach Czech DEX with issues related to the transfer of technology field. Czech DEX then acts as an advisory body in the whole process which is realized by external experts in a cooperation with us. First important step is an evaluation of research to identify the commercial potential. The process of technology transfer is then fully realized by Czech DEX specialists or we take the advisory role. Each field of client´s focus need to be carefully examined in order to proceed in the most appropriate way.

Czech DEX is also active in the field of Technology Brokering. Technology Brokering is using current technologies in new or different ways in other markets or fields, which can also lead to a creation of new markets and industries.

Intellectual property rights are used to protect the ownership of innovations and creativity. For Czech DEX clients is important to know how they can protect their IP. Regarding intellectual property Czech DEX has cooperated mainly with universities and research centres and also with individual researchers or inventors.
