Center of Excellence IT4Innovations

URL: http://www.it4i.eu/

Registration number: CZ.1.05/1.1.00/02.0070
Project launch: 1. 7. 2011
Completion of the project: 31. 12. 2015
The total amount of the subsidy: CZK 1,819,490,241.00

Subsidies from the state budget of the Czech Republic: 272 923 536.15

The aim of the project:

The main contribution of the IT4Innovations Center of Excellence project is the creation of a unique structure of national and international importance focused on key areas of science and research, such as the development of the information society, the development of embedded systems, innovative medicine and nanotechnology and, last but not least, the development of information technologies themselves. The IT4Innovations Center of Excellence project also represents an exceptional unification of scientific, research and development capacities in the field of computer science and mathematics to ensure the development of a range of modern and progressive technologies. The potential emergence of such a center evokes further demand for new sophisticated services that could not have been realized without a research infrastructure of national importance. In this way, we are creating a basis for the close connection of basic and applied research with a clearly specified impact on innovation. The core of the planned center will be computing, which is set upon other science disciplines and formulated into three interrelated key research areas:

  • IT4People - research focused on improving the quality of life of society through modern information technology.
  • SC4Industry - supercomputing for solving industrial problems, modeling in natural sciences and nanotechnologies (shape optimization, material design, biomechanical simulation, ...).
  • Theory4IT - an area focused on basic research, especially on the development of new non-traditional computational methods (knowledge mining, ant-hill theory).
