Creating synergies between research infrastructures to stimulate innovation in the cross-border region (RIAT-CZ)


This project focuses on the support of research infrastructures (RI) on the regional level in the field of bio- and nanotechnology. The main goal is to prepare and validate a sustainable model of cross-border collaboration (Austria – Czech Republic) of research infrastructures. It is targeted on enabling accessibility to the cross-border research infrastructures for local academic and industrial users. Additionally it ensures the effective exploitation of complementary equipment and expertise. 

Main objectives of the project:

  • Sharing best practices in managing core facilities, sharing knowledge and expertise that lead to an improvement of the provided services
  • Innovation of services by joint use of complementary equipment on both sides of the border (Austria – Czech Republic)
  • Enabling access to the research infrastructures for external users

The project RIAT-CZ receives financial support from the European Union within the program Interreg V–A – Austria – Czech Republic (Project no. ATCZ40).
