#brnoregion has been awarded the prestigious European Entrepreneurial Region 2024 award, making it the first recipient of this title from the Czech Republic. The European Committee of the Regions particularly appreciated the long-term strategy of supporting entrepreneurship and innovation in the region and the resulting current activities aimed at greater resilience, sustainability and digitalization of companies.

The South Moravian Region and the City of Brno have put themselves on the map of innovative regions in Europe with its strategic goal of being home to globally successful entrepreneurs, resulting from the successes of the Regional Innovation Strategy to date and its ambition for further development. This means supporting everything from the broadest student entrepreneurship, to increasing the number of dynamic start-ups and companies targeting international markets, to sustainable prosperity. 

"The regional innovation strategy is based on the mutual trust of the local innovation community. We work closely with companies, research organizations, and NGOs, and together we are building our region into a home for globally successful entrepreneurs. In doing so, we can rely on strong sectors such as electron microscopy or IT, especially game development or cybersecurity. Successful business research and development expands opportunities for cooperation, attracts talent and strengthens the entire region," says Jan Grolich, Governor of the South Moravian Region.

The projects, as well as the current awards, reflect the goals and outcomes of the long-term Regional Innovation Strategy

"We are honoured that the European Committee of the Regions has recognised our long-term efforts in building an entrepreneurial region. The City of Brno, together with the South Moravian Region, has been systematically supporting projects to promote innovation, research and technology transfer for more than 20 years. Thanks to this, our region can now rank among one of the fastest growing innovation ecosystems in Europe in terms of growth of investment in technology companies," says Anna Putnova, Brno City Councillor for Innovation and Cooperation with Research Organisations.
