International Cooperation


Membership in International Organizations


The representatives of Research Institute of Agricultural Engineering (RIAE, p.r.i.) are members of the following organizations :


-         European Association for Potato Research (EAPR)

-         European Society for Soil Conservation (ESSC)

-         International Soil and Tillage Research Organization (ISTRO)


The RIAE, p.r.i. is an active member of the ENGAGE (Association of European Institutes of Agricultural Engineering). This association is included into EurAgEng as a regional association of agricultural graduates for Europe within the CIGR. Our institute is also a member of Association of Agricultural Engineering Institutes of Central and Eastern Europe (CEEAgEng).


The representative of institute (ing. M. Dědina, Ph.D.) is a member of two working groups : Technical Working Group for Intensive Livestock Farming (IPPC sphere)-

Czech representative for branch of agriculture under gestion of the Ministry of Environment of the Czech Republic and Technical Working Group for Ammonia Abatement in the frame of UNC (ensuring of application and principle of the Göteborg Protocoll – CLTRP – IPPC sphere) – Czech representative for the Ministry of Agriculture of the Czech Republic under gestion of the Ministry of Environment of the Czech Republic.  


Agreements on Cooperation


There were concluded two agreements on cooperation with partners from Slovak Republic :


Faculty of Mechanization of Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra


The content of cooperation is common measuring work in sheep breeding with the aim to consider the technical parameters of stables and breeder conditions in a selected agriculture cooperative, measurement of air conditional parameters of a pigsty and examination of technical possibilities of sheep breeding stables for measurement of emissions. There was installed a measuring device for long-term monitoring of microclimatic parameters in pigsties and there was launched the data collection.  


Agrovaria Export-Import, limited liability company, Štúrovo


Direct cooperation in the sphere of applied research, mainly at processing of biologically degradable waste and reduction of ammonia and greenhouse gas emissions in agriculture.


The content of cooperation is :


- securing of experiments carried out during the separation of pig and cattle slurry;


- realization of experiments relating to the dosage of biotechnological preparations

  into the liquid fertilizers or feed water in the process of biologically degradable

  waste composting;


- organization of joint scientific workshops dealing with the problems of agriculture

  and environment.


For joint experiments the AGROVARIA, limited liability company lends its own technological equipment and the RIAE, p.r.i. Prague measuring device. The outcomes are presented jointly. As a result of mutual cooperation, after operational experience with separator, there was realized a constructional modification of separator.  


Agreements on Scientific and Technical Cooperation


Agreement on direct scientific and technical cooperation between VIESCH Moscow (All-Russian Research Institute for Electrification of Agriculture) and the RIAE, p.r.i. Prague in the sphere of agricultural energy.


In accordance with contract between the RIAE, p.r.i. Prague and Educational and Research Technical Institute, National University of Life and Environmental Science of Ukraine in Kiev the work was focused on energy saving technologies, bioconversion and alternative energetics.   


Another agreements on cooperation have been concluded with Moldova, which is one of eight countries preferred by the Czech Republic at providing of foreign assistance.


The memorandum was signed between the RIAE, p.r.i. Prague (together with Crop Production Institute, p.r.i. and Institute of Tropical and Subtropical Agriculture of the Czech University of Agriculture, Prague) and State University of Agriculture in Kíšiněv, Moldova. Another memorandum with Research Institute of Mechanization and Electrification of Agriculture in Kišiněv is related to the technical assistance in the spheres of research and research projects, consultancy, possibilities of short-term stays (according to the state of financial means as well as long-term ones), Ph.D. graduant stays with participation in solution of research projects, exchange of published materials, preparation of joint international projects etc.       


With North-West Research Institute of Mechanization and Electrification of Agriculture (SZNIIMESH) in Sankt Petersburg there was concluded agreement on the purpose of future cooperation.
