Support for innovation and business

Development projects

We implement a range of development projects and strategies supporting the sustainable development and transformation of the Moravian-Silesian Region. Our concept of sustainable development rests on three pillars – people, nature and business – and it is supported by innovation to guide the Region’s transformation.

  • After elaborating a new concept for the revitalization of former coal mining sites in the Karviná region, we have created a long-term project (POHO2030) which is currently a major focus of our activities.
  • We organize and participate in expert working groups consisting of key regional representatives to coordinate the Moravian-Silesian Region’s long-term strategic and development goals.
  • We plan and implement development strategies and projects for the Region, cities and municipalities.
  • We are a key participant in the RE:START programme, which supports economic restructuring in the Moravian-Silesian, Ústí and Karlovy Vary Regions.
  • We participate in meetings of the European Commission’s ‘Coal Regions in Transition’ platform, which has been set up to assist in the transformation of coal-mining regions.
  • We administer the Employee Mobility project, which enables selected target groups to travel free of charge within Ostrava’s public transport network.
