Representatives of sci­ence insti­tu­tions from the Visegrad Group (V4) coun­tries and Japan signed a mem­o­ran­dum of coop­er­a­tion (MoC) on Tuesday to pro­mote devel­op­ment and increased coop­er­a­tion in research and inno­va­tion. The MoC was signed at the res­i­dence of the Japanese Ambassador in Bratislava by rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Japan Science and Technology Agency, Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic, Hungarian Scientific Research Fund, the National Center for Research and Development of Poland, Slovak Academy of Sciences, and the International Visegrad Fund.

The event took place dur­ing the V4 + Japan Exchange Year, which marks the 10th anniver­sary of mutual coop­er­a­tion. “This is a his­toric moment because it took many years to accom­plish. The most impor­tant thing now is to imple­ment mean­ing­ful projects that will have real impact and con­tribute to sci­en­tific devel­op­ment in these coun­tries,” said Executive Director of the International Visegrad Fund Karla Wursterová.


Due to the fact Monday, Sept. 15, 2014, is a bank hol­i­day in Slovakia, the fund’s sec­re­tariat will be closed. Applicants for Standard Grants shall sub­mit the elec­tronic appli­ca­tions within the reg­u­lar dead­line (by 12:00 noon), but the signed print­outs with accom­pa­ny­ing doc­u­ments can be deliv­ered by 16:30 on Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014, or sent at the lat­est with Tuesday’s post­mark. Thank you for your understanding.
