Based on the analysis of existing studies and literature and data collection in the form of semi-structured interviews, the aim of the research is to compile appropriate scenarios for the organisational and coordination side of the Czech Presidency. These scenarios reflect both positive and negative experiences during the presidency of comparable EU Member States, taking into account the expected objectives, agenda, economic efficiency, risks and potential during the Czech Presidency.
The aim of the project is to adjust the public support (investment subsidies) of priority sectors in the Czech Republic with regard to anticipated effects of technological changes (4th industrial revolution). Priority sectors will be verified and updated using primary interdisciplinary research, mapping expected technological changes (automation), the way technological changes are reflected in company strategies and effects of those changes on labour markets. Based on the primary data, recommendations for investment support of perspective industries (within the meaning of the so called smart specialisation, RIS3) will be issued. Updated investment strategy will contribute to enhancement of competitiveness and innovation capacity of the manufacturing industry in the Czech Republic.
