The history of Brno‘s investments in innovation dates back to 2009, when Brno for the first time supported projects for the development of innovations, such as „Brno PhD. Talent“ or „Inovation vouchers“. Since then we draw key stakeholders into the discussion about priority needs and topics so our city develops into innovative living lab.
