22 Sep 2022
EUinmyRegion
This Stories from the Regions video takes us to the Institute of Microbiology of the Czech Academy of Sciences, where a joint Czech-Austrian platform develops new technology for the recovery of rare earth elements (REEs) from electronic waste or water by microorganisms (bacteria, algae and cyanobacteria) in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner. Rare earth elements are metals that occur only in a small scale and are difficult to obtain. Their widespread use in modern technologies, especially the electronics industry, only confirms their enormous importance for the modern technology-driven society. This video was prepared with the help of the Interreg Volunteer Youth Volunteers Jiří and Josef Navrátil and features a former IVY Volunteer Natálie Vítová, who all got to experience first-hand and contribute to the work of this important project!

Developing the New Wave of Czech Solar PV Projects | Solarplaza Consultancy Webinar
20 Sep 2022
Solarplaza
The Czech PV market is experiencing a new solar boom after installing most of its 2.2 GW cumulative capacity between 2008 and 2010. The introduction of investment subsidies for renewables through the European Union’s Modernisation Fund, high electricity prices, and the urgent need for reduced reliance on (Russian) gas and improved energy security are spurring this new wave of solar PV assets. It is estimated that these catalysts could fuel at least 5.75 GWp of new installations by 2030. A second call for solar PV projects is currently underway, as part of the Modernisation Fund’s RES+ subsidy program.The call for projects is divided into four different categories: below 1 MWp, above 1 MWp, municipalities and public buildings. Solarplaza Consultancy and Solární Asociace joined forces to give international investors and developers an outline on how to successfully develop and finance PV projects in the Czech Republic. Join this webinar to discover: 🔹 State of the Czech solar PV market and outlook for 2030 🔹 The RES+ program (Modernisation Fund) and the new calls for projects 🔹 Project development cycle for ground-mounted, agri-PV and floating 🔹 Key barriers to PV deployment and policy & regulatory outlook 🔹 How to make the solar PV business model work ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 🔗 Links For an overview of upcoming events: http://www.solarplaza.com/events/​​​ Sign up for our newsletter for updates: https://bit.ly/2UwOGy1​​ 👍 FOLLOW US LinkedIn: https://nl.linkedin.com/company/solarplaza_2 Twitter: https://twitter.com/solarplaza

In this episode podcast host Miriam Eisermann sat down with Martin Mrkos, Mayor the City of Žďár nad Sázavou in Czech Republic. He is joined by Michal Bacovsky, who is Smart City Coordinator of Zdar. The city counts 21.000 inhabitants and is one of the 10 pilot cities involved in the EUCityCalc project. After intensive thermal insulation of its buildings and first renewable installations, the city is now exploring new pathways. Michal and Martin tell us what these pathways are and how much the size of a city matters (or not). More and more European cities have vowed to become climate-neutral by mid-century or even earlier. Only a few have managed yet to draft precise and tangible transition plans. The EUCityCalc project supports cities in data-driven decision-making: With funding from the EU Horizon 2020 program, the project will release the European City Calculator webtool. This is an open-source instrument with which cities can plan their measures to bring CO2 emissions down to zero. www.europeancitycalculator.eu

Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala addresses the European Parliament
5 Jul 2022
European Parliament
As Czechia takes over the rotating presidency of EU’s Council, MEPs welcome Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala to the plenary to discuss his country’s priorities for the next six months. Ukraine’s post-war recovery, energy security and the management of the refugee crisis are on the top of the agenda. Czechia also wants to address defence capabilities and cyberspace security in the EU, as well as the resilience of the European economy and of democratic institutions. The motto of the Czech Presidency is “Europe as a Task: Rethink, Rebuild, Repower”, recalling a speech made by the first Czech President Václav Havel and underlining the need “to re-evaluate current approaches and premises” in light of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine.

New Czech coalition face a challenging agenda, interview with Petr Ježek
New Czech coalition face a challenging agenda, interview with Petr Ježek
28 Nov 2021
EU Reporter
Today (28 November), Petr Fiala has been appointed as Prime Minister of the Czech Republic by President Miloš Zeman. The appointment follows elections where the party in government won the most seats, but where a coalition of opposition parties acted together to form a coalition government*. EU Reporter spoke to former diplomat and former Liberal MEP Petr Ježek about the new government. EU Reporter (EUR): What do we know about Petr Fiala, the new Czech PM? PJ (Petr Ježek): Fiala is a well-known and experienced Czech politician. He was already a member of one of the former governments and the chairperson of the Czech, I would say, Conservative Party, which leads the coalition. EUR: Is this a stable coalition? PJ: It remains to be seen. The logic behind cementing this coalition was to bring a change and to topple the populist Prime Minister Andre Babis. There may be some differences between conservatives and liberals within the coalition, but I think that the bottom line is that they want to be responsible and bring the changes which will move the Czech Republic again into the family of normal regular European countries, because with a populist Prime Minister and populist president, it was not the case. While welcoming the new government and the change it brings Ježek does not underestimate the challenges the new government faces. PJ: I think that there are a number of issues which make life difficult for the new government, not not only that they are a partnership of five, but because there is still the president of the Czech Republic (Zeman), who with his aides and collaborators behave unscrupulously. They do whatever they want, regardless of the constitution, that's one problem. The other is the public service, people who were loyal to the Prime Minister were appointed and not on the basis of their qualifications and quality. So we have a very inefficient public service. The other problem will be that the opposition in the parliament will be either populists or extremist parties, where every mistake by the government will be used by them. In this respect, there is also a broader dimension [for the wider Visegrad region] that opposition to populist leaders in Hungary and Poland will need to team up and build broader coalition's in order to win, if the Czech Republic's coalition is success story, it will reinforce them, it will help them; but if not it may very well reinforce the populist leaders. So the responsibility is not only for the Czech Republic. Ježek says there is also quite a legacy for any incoming government: PJ: First of all, there are pressing issues like the COVID pandemic, the energy prices and the huge budget deficit. These problems are enormous, but this aside there is also the need to deal with the failings of the previous government who failed to modernize the country. They didn’t improve the highways, not to mention new technologies or the green agenda. So the government faces huge challenges that will not be easy in the face of an opposition made up of populists and extremists. EUR: Fiala’s party in part of the ECR group which also include the Polish Law and Justice Party, which is challenging the rule of law, in particular through the politicization of the judiciary. Do you think that Fiala will stand behind his Polish colleagues in the ECR group? Or will he take a different position that defends the rule of law? PJ: I would say that Petr Fielais a realistic person and someone with good intentions. There is a certain legacy in the party of the former chairman Vaclav Klaus, who was Prime Minister and President and he was strongly against the euro and other aspects of closer European Union, which still hangs over the party and I would say that there is still quite a few MEPs, who are part of the ECR group, who share this view, who think that what happens in Hungary and Poland is just a case for the two countries and it has nothing to do with the EU. I hope that Fiela will bring together strands to transform the party along the lines of regular European right parties on the right, like CDU in Germany, for example, who would like to see all member states observe the rule of law and other commitments. I hope that when he meets his counterparts within the European Council, that it reinforces him, and it helps to shape his views on that issue. For the full interview please watch the video above. *Fiala (ODS, ECR Group) will lead a coalition of five parties including: Mayors and Independents (STAN, EPP Group), Christian and Democratic Union – Czechoslovak People’s Party (KDU/ČSL, EPP), Tradition Responsibility Prosperity (TOP09, EPP) and the Czech Pirate Party (Piráti, Greens/EFA)

Depot.Bike is a consolidation centre where delivery vehicles can transfer cargo to bicycles before entering the city. Eight logistics companies have joined the pilot, and more than 6,000 parcels are being delivered by bike each month, with a planned second depot expected to double this number soon. Since it began in November 2020, cargo bike couriers have travelled over 17,000 kilometres that would otherwise have been covered by fossil fuel emitting vehicles.

European Solidarity and the COVID Response: Hungary and the Czech Republic
23 Sep 2021
TEPSA - Trans Europe...
The debate on the future of Europe has gained a new momentum due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related recovery measures adopted by the EU. The pandemic has culminated in different attitudes towards the concept of solidarity in Hungary and the Czech Republic: how do these attitudes differ, and why do they differ? On Thursday September 16 at 10:00 CET, TEPSA joined with its Member Institute from Hungary, the Institute of World Economics, Centre for Economic and Regional Studies (IWE CERS) to explore these questions and more in the framework of the upcoming publication of TEPSA’s new book Solidarity in Action and the Future of Europe: Views from the Capitals. Hungary has been at the forefront of internal divisions within the EU for years. With the Orbán administration at the helm, anti-EU rhetoric rests at the heart of the Hungarian government’s approach to EU policy, both at home and in Brussels. Despite this, all major opposition parties support further EU integration and are generally trusting of the European Union. In this context, European solidarity in the wake of COVID-19 has become something of a political hot potato. In the Czech Republic, together with “rule of law” or “EU values”, the concept of European solidarity has come to be seen as part of the moralizing rhetoric of the “old” elites in the EU. Thus, the concept is becoming a tool of division, a predominantly negative notion. Speakers: - Zdeněk Sychra, Assistant Professor, Department of Politics and International Relations, University of West Bohemia, - András Inotai, Professor Emeritus, former Director of the Institute of World Economics, - Norbert Szijártó, Research Fellow, Institute of World Economics, CERS, - András Bíró-Nagy, Senior Research Fellow, Institute for Political Science, Centre for Social Sciences, Department for Government and Public Policy, - Moderated by: Andrea Éltető, Senior Research Felow, Institute of World Economics, CERS. Can European solidarity help to tip the scales away from Euroscepticism, or even move them in favour of building a stronger, more integrated Union?

The International Energy Agency will host a webinar for the launch of its publication Energy Policies of IEA Countries: Czech Republic on Monday, 13 September, at 11:15 AM CEST, with Karel Havlicek, Minister for Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic and Fatih Birol, Executive Director of the International Energy Agency. The phase-out of coal will be a key challenge for the Czech Republic over the coming decade. Today, coal accounts for almost half of the country’s electricity generation and a quarter of its residential heating demand. To prepare for the phase-out, the country needs to speed up the deployment of low-carbon sources of electricity generation. Energy efficiency should be placed at the centre of the Czech Republic’s energy policy making to help with the coal phase-out. In this report, the IEA provides a range of energy policy recommendations to help the Czech Republic move ahead with the development of a modern energy sector for a healthy and prosperous future.

SUBSISTENCE STRATEGIES OF THE LBK SITE AT ŽÁDOVICE (MORAVIA, CZECH REPUBLIC)
30 Mar 2021
European Association...
Site Žádovice (south Moravia) is a polycultural site with substantial settlement features dated to the LBK, the early phase (I) being the most pronounced. To this phase belong the most of the archaeologically detected features (such as ground plans of houses, burials). We are currently focusing on the reconstruction of subsistence strategies of the local early LBK community within the complex study of the site. Research is at the moment focused mainly on the anthropological material from burials. Their primary anthropological analysis has been already carried out (Čižmář – Geislerová 1998). Pathological signs of buried indi-viduals (mostly children) are consistent with the consumption of a plant-based diet (teeth abrasion, anemia). This kind of diet is also confirmed by multiple finds of tools used for processing plants processing (grinding stones). Buried individuals are currently being dated by 14C dating. The ratio of stable isotopes (δ13C and δ15N) is being established in order to reconstruct paleodiet. Present results of radiocarbon dating showed surprisingly old dates (6300–5600 calBC). Therefore it is necessary to obtain more 14C data and do more analyses (for example aDNA) to establish the chronology and understand the economic and social aspects of the past community. It is worth considering whether the old dating could not have been caused by a certain kind of diet (such as reservoir effect caused by consuming fish). To verify this hypothesis the osteological material of domestic animals was analyzed (C14 dating). The exceptional character of site Žádovice might be emphasized by the atypical position in the land-scape, which might have influenced the subsistence strategy of the local inhabitants. Results of this study may contribute to better understanding the way of life of the local community in the context of the LBK in Central Europe.

The overall objective of the UASiMAP project is to map and further support the regional engagement activities of European professional higher education institutions, in particular Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS) as the most distinguished type of provider, while promoting, evaluating and facilitating their analytical measurement through existing traditional and newly identified indicators. UASiMAP aims to develop an operative and analytical framework specifically tailored for mapping and self-reflection of UAS local engagement, development of their further strategies, promoting and communicating their contribution to society and regional community, based on the experience and insight of key-stakeholders from across the whole European Union. A collection of several institutional cases based around the pilot testing of the tools and indicators will be an integral part of the project. The project will and benefit from the experience and conclusion of other similar initiatives and pro-jects (e.g. HEInnovate, U-Multirank). The UASiMAP project may well build upon the achievements of the TEFCE project which has been focused on relevant issues since 2017.

Voices of ILGA-Europe: Czeslaw Walek on the Frontlines for Equal Marriage in the Czech Republic
12 Feb 2020
ILGA-Europe
From the high-powered offices of government, to the vanguard of the Czech Republic’s LGBTI movement, Czeslaw Walek tells his story of activism in action. Our second Voices of ILGA-Europe contributor is Czeslaw Walek, the Chair of Prague Pride, who we met during our most recent conference in Prague. Czeslaw talked to us about the frustrations that powered his journey from the high offices of government to becoming one of the Czech Republic’s most prominent activists, and how ILGA-Europe has helped along the way. “When we started, we didn’t know what to expect,” says Czeslaw Walek, remembering the very first Pride in the Czech capital of Prague, back in 2011. The march was a huge success, and since then has grown from strength to strength. So too has the Czech Republic’s LGBTI movement, to the point that the country could well become the first post-communist country with full marriage equality. “At this moment we are a bit stuck in the parliament with the discussion,” Czeslaw says, referring to the delay tactics used by the opposition in parliamentary debates. “But the actual marriage equality campaign is a big success, because it’s not only lobbying and advocacy in the Parliament, but it’s a nationwide conversation about who LGBT people really are and what position in society they should have.” To find out more about the human rights situation of LGBTI people in the Czech Republic, visit the country’s annual review page here: https://www.ilga-europe.org/annualreview/2020#czech-republic Watch Czeslaw’s video to learn more about the fight for marriage equality in the Czech Republic, and how his feelings at the very first Prague Pride showed him that LGBTI Czechs could achieve great things.
