Firm foundations of CERIT

CERIT Science Park I 

  • We operate a science and technology park, part of the Faculty of Informatics of Masaryk University.

  • Specifically, it is 2200 m2 of superbly equipped space, a backdrop for combining business, science, and technology.

  • Scientists and students from Masaryk University and IT companies meet here. More than 20 companies have their headquarters here, start-ups and large corporations. Physical proximity facilitates collaboration and information sharing.

CERIT Science Park II 

  • CERIT Science Park I has proven to be a functional and successful project. However, at the same time, we lack space for other companies.

  • CERIT Science Park II is currently underway and will cover more than 20 000 m2. This will allow a significant increase in IT capacity in the area.

  • As part of this project, CERIT provides process cooperation for Masaryk University with a private investor.

Testbeds for industrial control systems

  • We run training control systems. These are systems and devices that control and monitor technological processes in the industry. The safety of these systems is crucial for our society.

  • Specifically, they are used, for example, in the production and distribution of electricity, oil, natural gas, drinking water, or in the management of transport, chemical, automotive, or manufacturing industries.

  • We use these systems in cybersecurity research and teaching. Thanks to testbeds, it is possible to supplement theoretical education with practical exercises.

KYPO Cyber Range Platform    

  • It is a sophisticated virtual environment that we have been developing at Masaryk University since 2013.

  • It can be used to create university courses and training for professionals. We have a lot of practical experience with both use cases.

  • In addition, we released the KYPO Cyber Range Platform as open-source in 2020. This means that it is now available to everyone.



  • It is a geographic area for development focused on cybersecurity. Activities and competencies related to this area have been concentrated here for a long time.

  • This also facilitates research and investment cooperation.

  • CERIT is the initiator and coordinator of CYBER CAMPUS CZ. It also ensures its connection with the Council of the National Centre for Cyber Security, which consults its direction.
