Moravian-Silesian Innovation Center Ostrava
Moravian-Silesian Innovation Center Ostrava, a.s. (hereinafter referred to as MSIC) commenced operations in July 2017 by transforming the Science and Technology Park Ostrava, a.s. (hereinafter referred to as VTPO). Already at the beginning of 2017, a Memorandum of Cooperation took place on the agreement between the Statutory City of Ostrava and the Moravian-Silesian Region on a common approach in the field of entrepreneurship and innovation in the region. A part of the transformation was the substantial modification of the ownership assignment and the associated change of the company’s business name in order to build a new joint brand and competent organization for the development of the innovative ecosystem in the region.
The main mission of MSIC is to provide services that support growth and innovation in companies. These are services that are not offered on the market in our region or offered in the required quality, affordability or otherwise relevant conditions. Gradually developed MSIC services complement existing commercial services and contribute to improving the environment for business and innovation in Ostrava and across the region.
