Second Call for Proposals in the TREND Programme in Preparation
On 4 December, the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic is planning to announce a second call for proposals in the TREND programme, in particular sub-programme 2 – Newcomers, focusing on the support of industrial research and experimental development. The objective of the TREND programme is to support projects focusing on implementing the results of industrial research and experimental development in practice and on the support of penetration of new markets. The main aim of sub-programme 2 is to support research and development (“R&D”) activities of enterprises in cooperation with research organisations, especially those applicants, who do not carry out R&D activities on a regular basis. The programme is organised under the aegis of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic, but the subsidiser is the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic.
