- About us
There are altogether 24 academic and industrial facilities across different parts of the Czech Republic participating in the NCC for MATCA that share a common interest in advanced technologies R&D.
The NCK MATCA consortium has grown noticeably over the period of its existence and from the original seven founding members, a total of 20 NCK MATCA institutes from the academic and industrial sphere, which combine research and development of advanced technologies, are currently scattered across the Czech Republic.
We would like to continue our very promising cooperation and applied research, and continue to connect the academic and industrial spheres. Therefore, in April this year, an application was submitted for the second public competition of the Program of the National Centre of Competence, announced by the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic (TAČR). Not only all the current institutes of our consortium, but also four new partners (Institute for Hydrodynamics of the CAS, v. v. i., SHM, s. r. o., ad-tech s.r.o. and Advanced Metal Powders s.r.o.) enter with us into the follow-up NCK MATCA 2.
The results of the competition will be known until 30th November 2022.
