Future development of the HiLASE Centre is not an isolated activity. The Centre is perfectly located in a new and dynamically developing region STAR (Science and Technology Advanced region), i.e. the cluster including all key innovative infrastructures and hi-tech companies of the region with huge potential to increase the competitiveness of the region and wellbeing of its people. The emphasis will be put on active participation in further development of the existing regional cluster formation STAR providing an innovation friendly environment.
STAR - responsible development of the region
Top science and applied research. Technological and innovative companies. Attractive and safe environment for life and business. A small region with great potential. This is STAR. A science and technology cluster, made up of a strong community of research organizations, companies, investors and enthusiastic local patriots. Eco-system, that belongs to one of the fastest growing economies of the European Union.
HiLASE supports local school
We strive to involve young people in science and to support meaningful projects in the local community . This is why HiLASE seeks to stimulate children's interest in science and technology. Young scientists from the HiLASE laser center team regularly teach at the local base school in Dolní Břežany. In addition, HiLASE attends a science fair every year, during which children have a unique opportunity to explore a number of disciplines from close proximity.
HiLASE is a member of Czech Optical Cluster
The objective of the Czech Optical Cluster is to improve the conditions for the development of the optical industry in the Czech Republic. Thanks to the collaboration of companies, the public sector and the education sector, the cluster plays an important role in the development of technologies and services in the fields of optics, optomechatronics, photonics, optoelectronics and precision mechanics. In practice, it focuses on industrial and consumer optics, military optics and lighting technology.
Successful cooperation with RIGAKU
HiLASE successfully cooperates with Rigaku, an international company engaged in research, development and production of X-ray optics and detectors.
The HiLASE Centre is a member of the Brain4Industry consortium
B4I was created to help small and medium-sized companies in particular to make the most of digital technologies and artificial intelligence, thereby increasing their competitiveness. It is to serve as a one-stop-shop for the digital transformation of these businesses - their representatives will gain access to knowledge, methods and software, technology platforms, prototyping solutions and testing facilities. The consortium has also been included as one of the Czech Republic's representatives in the prestigious network of European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIH).
