The merger of the top Austrian technical universities and the CEITEC institute should result in the improvement of nanotechnology and biotechnology research at the Brno research center. Thanks to the European Union's Horizon 2020 TEAMING program, Back4Future, currently in its first phase, should deepen the already existing partnership with the Vienna Technical University (TU Wien) and the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU) and support the further development of the Center of Scientific Excellence CEITEC.

Part of the first, current phase is to prepare a plan for the further development of the science center, not only in the area of ​​research, but also in the field of human resource management and innovation strategies. Scientifically, the project should focus on the development of nanotechnologies and biotechnology at a highly prominent level at the Vienna universities.

If the Back4Future project succeeds next year in competition with 50 other projects (including a total of 6 in the Czech Republic) and will advance to the second stage, this success would mean the beginning of the CEITEC Center's transformation: deepening synergies in the field of research following the wider region; improving innovation performance.
