The Science park follows on from the already built Science and Technology Park, which is in close proximity. It is conceived as a multidisciplinary site made up of offices and research facilities, and laboratories for light industry. The Park is based on co-operation with the Czech Technical University and Charles University in Prague’s Faculty of Maths and Physics. The Science Park is particularly involved in finding new opportunities in electrical engineering.
Activities in the Science Park focus on research and development in these sectors of industry: development and testing of driving mechanisms for electric car engines, software and hardware development – electrical engineering low current laboratory and computer methods, automation and optimisation of manufacturing processes by computer methods, solving logistics jobs by computer methods, developing communication and related fields – electrical engineering low current laboratory and computer methods, electronics and microelectronics development, internet and security technology – electrical engineering low current laboratory and computer methods.
Roztoky Science Park is located directly opposite the Science and Technology Park, just a few metres away. This increases the opportunity to exploit the synergy effect of linked research. A combination of a quiet location, proximity to Prague and easy accessibility make Roztoky an attractive and pleasant place to work. Regular bus services, the railway line and Václav Havel airport, just 15 minutes away, guarantee fast transport connections both to the Czech capital and abroad. In future, the centre’s function will also include another upcoming project, the Žalov Science and Technology Park, which is to be located roughly 300 m from the current buildings.
