Innovation Centre of the Ústí Region

In 2015, the Innovation Centre of the Ústí Region (ICUK) was founded by the Ústí Region Office, the Regional Chamber of Commerce and Jan Evangelista Purkyně University.
ICUK is a respected teammate in the transformation of the Ústí Region into a place where citizens, students and entrepreneurs would like to stay, where they would return and where talented people with the desire to participate in this change would also actively come. We have been one of the carriers of the vision of a functional innovation ecosystem in the region and a persistent fighter for its creation.
We are a responsible partner to our founders in the preparation and implementation of strategic priorities for the development of entrepreneurship and the knowledge economy.
