Even the US Navy has technical data for the Czech respirator with the highest degree of security. The Czech Republic is leading by example in the self-sufficient production of protective equipment, to which it also motivates other states. When the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics of the Czech Technical University (CIIRC CTU) developed a completely new protective CIIRC RP95-3D half mask - respirator on a special 3D printer and certified it in one single March week, it raised a wave of appreciation and deserved attention to the progressive approach of Czech scientists. Similar projects are a proof that stronger support for innovation is of great importance, and in the very first days they were supported by the Czech Rise Up program, which aims to help the Czech industry and economy build on the added value and cooperate globally.
