IOCB Tech is one of the most successful Technology Transfer Offices in the Czech Republic. Together with these successes, our portfolio of needs has grown, making it necessary to diversify our activities and subsequently create new entities specialized in selected activities such as innovation and inventions support, foundation and philanthropic activities, support for the development of new drugs, and investment into innovative European life sciences companies focused on drug discovery, diagnostics, MedTech, and other life sciences fields.
The foundation (Nadační fond IOCB Tech) was established in 2022 by IOCB Tech to take over its philanthropic activities and develop them systematically and professionally. The foundation’s mission is to contribute to the development of science and the application of its results in society while at the same time strengthening public awareness of the fundamental contribution of scientific research.
The translational research center is currently in the preparatory work stage, with a scheduled launch in February 2024.
