CEITEC - Central European Institute of Technology

CEITEC – Central European Institute of Technology is a centre with the main focus being research in the fields of life sciences, advanced materials, and technologies. CEITEC was established in 2011 on the strong foundation of six prominent universities and research institutes, with long-lasting traditions located in Brno, Czech Republic. Since its short existence, CEITEC has managed to build up a cutting-edge research centre which performs among the best European institutes. CEITEC’s success can be attributed to its high-tech technologies, as well as to its adherence to international standards of quality in research, which is regularly evaluated by an international committee. Among the main priorities of CEITEC are to promote a motivating and dynamic international scientific environment, to provide state-of-the-art research infrastructure, and to ensure a policy of open communication and equal opportunities.

“EU-Life brings a much needed voice for research intensive institutes, as an alternative model to university-derived research from across Europe. As a group of 13 institutes embedded in different countries, our shared knowledge of science stewardship allows us to become better, both as individual organisations, and collectively.“

Markus Dettenhofer, Director of CEITEC
