Current challenges


KAPPA Programme

The Programme is expected to run from 2020 to 2024, i.e. for five years. There are one or two calls for proposals that are expected to be executed throughout the duration of the Programme. The first open call will be launched on 20th November 2019. The minimum duration of projects under this Programme is 24 months. The maximum implementation period of a project is five years. All projects must be completed by 30 April 2024 at the latest.

The Programme is generally aimed at supporting international cooperation between Czech entities and partners from Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein in applied research, as well as at supporting the interconnection of research organisations with the consumers of the outputs of applied research, experimental development and innovation, i.e. with the industrial sphere (mainly with enterprises and other entities at the national and international level) operating in various social fields. The implementation of the Programme mainly assumes the application of industrial research projects (also involving the necessary activities in oriented basic research), as well as support for projects with a predominance of experimental development.
