Deputy Foreign Minister Jiří Kozák visited the Pardubice Region on Tuesday, 30 January. The central theme of the working trip, organised in cooperation with the Regional Economic Chamber of the Pardubice Region, was to support Czech science abroad.

The Deputy Minister presented ways the MFA can support the academic and private sphere in the field of research, development and innovation. He presented the various support tools of the MFA, such as projects to support economic and scientific diplomacy. The discussion also included the priorities and challenges faced by universities and companies in penetrating foreign markets.
