Intellectual property at MUThe MU Technology Transfer Center has published a brochure Intellectual property at Masaryk University in a nutshell (PDF).
Frascati Manual 2015You can find it on the TAČR website Frascati Manual 2015 (Czech translation) , which is a document intended for the evaluation of scientific and technical activities. It is a methodological tool, but also a tool for statistical analysis and collection of information on implemented activities in the field of research, development and innovation. There are boundaries between research, development and other related activities.
The document specifies five criteria that research and development activities should meet. These include standard novelty, uncertainty and a new creative original approach, systematicity and the ability to reproduce the achieved results. The manual divides research and development into basic research, applied research and experimental development, which are defined in more detail in it. It also describes the activities excluded from R&D and gives specific examples that demonstrate the determination of the R&D threshold.
