Project Schedule

The idea to establish the new research centre BIOCEV arose in early 2006. At that time the Czech Republic was missing a modern research centre specialized in two prospective domains – biotechnology and biomedicine. As a solution to this situation, the Project BIOCEV came into existence with the planned financial support from the European Structural Funds, namely the Operational programme Research and Development for Innovations.
