Scientific Projects and Grants

Participation in scientific projects and grants focused on research and development in the field of optical systems, advanced measurement methods, and the development of special materials for use in optical applications represent just some of the cornerstones of the activity of our Centre. Therefore, they receive special attention.

We regularly deal with projects and grants of foreign (ESA, European Southern Observatory, etc.) as well as domestic providers (Czech Science Foundation; Technological Agency of the Czech Republic; Ministry of the Interior; Ministry of Industry and Trade; Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, etc.).
