The VRI is the only professional research centre in the Czech Republic conducting studies in the field of veterinary medicine with a significant proportion of applied research. This implies that there is a strong emphasis on collaboration with manufacturing and innovative companies in order to ensure the transfer of professional and scientific results into practice. Professional specialization is primarily given by the field of study at each department of the Institute.
Successful and effective collaboration is evident from a number of joint research projects, contract research and commission research projects implemented by professional staff of the Institute in coordination with the industry partner.
The greatest potential of the Institute consists in the use of experimental animal facilities in association with the laboratory background and the expertise and experience of the researchers.
Besides that, the researchers have extensive experience in the field of laboratory diagnostics and development of diagnostic kits. Specific service offerings are described in the presentations of respective departments of the Institute.
