About Project FIT


Registration number of the Project
CZ.02.1.01/0.0/0.0/15_003/0000495

Project period
1st January 2017 – 31st Decemeber 2021


The main aim of Project FIT is to build a sustainableworld-class Nanotechnology for Healthcare Centre in Central Europe based on novel recombinant vaccine, molecular adjuvant and modern drug delivery technologies. This will be achieved by:

  • Installing a world-class infrastructure appropriate to our agreed scientific goals

  • Forginga top team of scientists and support staff 

  • Achieving a thorough internationalization of our research efforts and staff

Project FIT (CZ.02.1.01/0.0/0.0/15_003/0000495) is an OPVVV Project of the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth & Sports (MEYS, MŠMT in Czech) that beganon 1st January 2017. Project FIT is supported by 8 million Euros(202 million CZK) of funding over 5 years from the Czech government and EU (Regional Development Fund).Prof Andrew D. Miller, the leading chemist/chemical biologist from the UK, isKey Foreign Scientist (KFS) and responsible Director of Project FIT.

We are making use of leading nanodelivery patch technologies for oral vaccination
Vaccine delivery via the oral mucous membrane is surely the most promising alternative to vaccine delivery by needle and syringe. Our nanodelivery patch technology has been designed in such a way as to deliver a substantial dose of vaccine direct to the mucosal and systemic immune systems to generate immune responses without the need for needle and syringe.
