You already had a chance to read about the ICT Brokerage hosted in Brno on April 29-30 in the posts by Gunther Krumpak and Vlastimil Vesely here on nowEurope. I’m posting a few photos to show the atmosphere, audience and people networking in the Holiday Inn Brno. The Czech Innovation Day attracted about 140 attendees including guests from UK, Spain Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, Germany, Bulgaria, Ireland, Macedonia, Belgium, Netherlands, Finland, Greece, Italy, Denmark and four members of the European Commission.

On Thursday last week Gunther Krumpak and I were facilitating one of the discussion tables within the ICT Brokerage in Brno, the event co-organised by our FIRST Innovation Park. See Gunther’s post about the event. The second day consisted of interactive discussions divided into six tables according to the FP7 5th & 6th call’s challenges. Ours was dedicated to Digital Content, Technology Enhanced Learning and Intelligent Information Management.
We had an interesting bunch of researchers, companies, both experienced Framework Programme players as newcomers around the table. As usually the most useful talks happen with those you choose (or who choose you) for coffee conversations. We have also distributed copies of two documents that may be also of your interest – the relevant part of the FP7 workprogramme and the examples of projects funded under FP6 or FP7 1st call. By the way the 4th ICT call (closed on April 1) attracted in total 1267 project proposals – 954 STREPs 954 and 172 integrated projects (IPs).
If you are interested in international R&D projects around building virtual communities, Internet application including web 2.0 and social networks and if you are looking for a partner in the Czech Republic for 5th or 6th call proposals, feel free to contact us.
