About Visegrad Fund

The Fund is an international donor organization, established in 2000 by the governments of the Visegrad Group countries—Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia to promote regional cooperation in the Visegrad region (V4) as well as between the V4 region and other countries, especially in the Western Balkans and Eastern Partnership regions. The Fund does so by awarding €8 million through grants, scholarships and artist residencies provided annually by equal contributions of all the V4 countries. Other donor countries (Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, the United States) have provided another €10 million through various grant schemes run by the Fund since 2012.

Description of the main project objective

The goal of project: The project focuses on cooperation in international mixed groups and a joint solution of technical assignments in the area of The Internet of things (IoT). IoT is the extension of Internet connectivity into physical devices and everyday objects. It is a four days workshop of solving daily technical tasks in team cooperation, as a side event of Trenčín robotic day. The aim of the project is to contribute to students´ professional outlook, reduce xenophobia based on young people's personal experience, support their social and language skills. The Secondary Technical School in Trenčín has been organizing TRD-Trenčín Robotic Day for 14 years, where teams from primary and secondary schools compete on the field of robotics. We want to add another dimension to this action, and that would be, above all, cooperation that would prevail over rivalry.
