In February DZS (Czech National Agency for International Education and Research) will open Czech Liaison Office for Education and Research in Brussels (CZELO). The office will follow in the footsteps of the Czech Liaison Office for Research, Development and Innovation which has been hosted in Brussels by Technology Centre of the CAS since 2005. As the new name indicates, the office’s agenda will expand to also include the field of education.
“The principal aim of the new office is to support Czech institutions in intense participation in EU programmes for research and education. The CZELO office will provide information, consultation and guidance, and assist them in organizing meetings, workshops, seminars, conferences, conventions and other means of international cooperation in Brussels,” said Dana Petrova, the Director of DZS, describing CZELO’s long-terms goals.
DZS representatives took over the keys to the new CZELO headquarters in Brussels early this year. The building is located on Rue Montoyer street in the city centre.
CZELO’s principal priority in its first months of operation is mainly establishing communication channels with key stakeholders and thus enabling transfer of up-to-date information to and from the Czech Republic, as well as defining new portfolio of services and the activities of the office. Partner institutions will be able to take advantage of the convenient location of the new office, which is situated at the very centre of Belgium’s metropolis, the unofficial capital of the European Union. Its building on Rue Montoyer street is near other European institutions.
