On October 15, 2019, the online General Meeting of the CAMEB National Competence Center project was held online. The meeting was opened by the Chairman of the Board, Assoc. Prof. Ferkl from the Czech Technical University in Prague, who informed that in connection with the information provided by the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic (TA CR), it is possible to request an extension of the existing center of competence by two calendar years.
Given the fact that there was a time shift in the original intention of TA CR to announce a call for NCC II and NCC II projects will probably be financed only from year 2023, the extension of NCC I provides an opportunity to bridge the transition period of 2021 and 2022. It was confirmed from the solvers of sub-projects that they have the content and financially secured research content for the years 2021 and 2022 ready.
Some members are no longer interested in being part of the project from 2021, on the contrary, other entities have expressed interest in joining, which was approved by the General Meeting and will be taken into account in the amendments to the contract.
The wording of the Annual Report and the resignation of one of the members of the Board and the appointment of his deputy were also agreed.
Furthermore, Assoc. Prof. Ferkl pointed out that the mandate of the other members of the board would end and therefore proposed the re-election of all members of the board, which was subsequently approved.
