One of the pillars of BIOCEV is transfer of results of basic research into practice. The newly established knowledge base, joined in BIOCEV with a unique infrastructure, will provide biotech companies with unique opportunities to collaborate at contractual basis and to train their employees in advanced biotech methodologies.
By creating intellectual property and supporting establishment of start-up and spin-off biotech-oriented companies BIOCEV will catalyze formation of the sector of advanced biotech industry in the Czech Republic. In close vicinity of the planned centre, several biotech companies have already their sites (e.g. Exbio, Vidia) and based on the existing contacts there is a promise of further collaboration.
Further support and interest in the project implementation was also expressed by the association of biotech companies of the Czech Republic CzechBio, z.s.p.o. (http://www.czechbio.org/cs). CzechBio associates 29 biotech companies and academic institutions. The goal of the association is to accelerate and facilitate development and to reinforce the commercial activities of biotechnology organizations across the Czech Republic, along with intensification of communication of all the key partners in biotechnologies in the Czech Republic. This means not only communication among the commercial partners, but also support of co-operation between the commercial sphere and academic sphere.
