Research and Innovation Centre Pro-Akademia received a research grant from The International Visegrad Fund (IVF). As part of the grant R&IC Pro-Akademia will conduct an analyze regarding the energy efficiency of the clusters in the Region of Visegrad, a survey among Polish clusters, examine the clusters policy at the central level in Poland and prepare conclusions for the final report on cluster policy within Visegrad Group.
The International Visegrad Fund is an international organization based in Bratislava founded by the governments of the Visegrad Group (V4) countries—the Czech Republic, Hungary, the Republic of Poland, and the Slovak Republic—in Štiřín, Czech Republic, on June 9, 2000.
The purpose of the fund is to facilitate and promote the development of closer cooperation among citizens and institutions in the region as well as between the V4 region and other countries, especially the Western Balkans and countries of the Eastern Partnership. The fund does so through grant support of common cultural, scientific and educational projects, youth exchanges, cross-border projects and tourism promotion, and through individual mobility programs (scholarships, residencies).
