Regional Centre of Advanced Technologies and Materials (RCPTM)

The Regional Centre of Advanced Technologies and Materials (RCPTM) is a scientific and research centre connected to the Faculty of Science, Palacký University, Olomouc. Its chief objective is to produce superlative research and to transfer high-tech products and technologies to medical, industrial and environmental practice with a pronounced emphasis on connecting the Centre to international networks and collaborations.

The Centre is based upon an internationally established research team which has taken part in a number of past projects at the level of Research Plans and Research Centres. Since 2010, the research team has been substantially expanded and internationalized thanks to support from the Operating Programme Research and Development for Innovation (OP RDI). This support totalled almost CZK 500 million, 400 million of which was invested in unique technology and constructing of the new Centre building. The remaining funding was used to support young researchers and internationalization. Today, RCPTM has approximately 100 scientific team members, 25% of whom are foreign specialists.
