During this module were awarded a total of two teamwork. Total 15 participants were divided into three five-member groups. Each group had a color-coded (yellow, green and blue band).
The first team's work was focused on the preparation of project applications to the current challenges in FP7 Due to the complexity and bulkiness of the task teams to work until all hours of the morning. The following morning was because the deadline to submit projects and presentations of the project plan before the three-member jury consisting Kolman, Uhlir and Fojt. The performance of the task reflects the fact that the jury recommended, despite the quality of all projects, only one project for funding. The greatest benefit of this task is the reality and the fact that the success of raising funds from foreign sources is at JU and BC is extremely poor.
The second task team was focused on the issue of technology transfer. Ju and BC is currently preparing a joint project of the OP, PO3 – Technology Transfer Centre. As many participants of this module is the future customer service centers for technology transfer, the task was focused on obtaining feedback for future customers of these services. From this feedback clearly indicated that at present, especially completely lacks legal support (Model business relationships), business and marketing support (the ability to product / service value to offer and sell), but also financial support (license fund for seed fund, etc. )
All 15 participants recognized the DTM very positively to the unusual conditions of Czech education solutions that are beyond the acquisition of knowledge intensely focused on developing the skills of all participants.
