"UNICO is ready to give cooperation between top research and businesses in the Czech Republic a whole new meaning. Thanks to asking companies directly what their needs are." (Forbes, March 2022)
UNICO’s interdisciplinary research network, in-depth knowledge of the patent landscape, and its own powerful AI platform make it a front-runner in delivering technological innovations based on ground-breaking science.
CEO & Co-founder
UNICO was founded in 2017 by four partners: Vojtěch Kadlec, Vojtěch Nosek, Pavel Kordík, and Stanislav Kuznetsov, later joined by Jiří Navrátil as Partner. Having met at the Czech Technical University in Prague, they soon recognized that the collaboration of business and research can bring tremendous value to both sectors. Witnessing how many remarkable discoveries with the potential to solve the world’s most pressing problems remained locked behind academic doors, UNICO's founders decided to create a one-stop-shop for technological innovations and to give research commercialization a whole new meaning - by asking companies directly what their needs are and bringing these business opportunities to scientists.
We want companies and universities to work together in a transparent and win-win way. We help them work together smarter by processing big data and using unique artificial intelligence. Our goal is to offer both sides a unified and simple approach to cooperation that will allow the supply of universities to be efficiently linked to business demand.
Through unique artificial intelligence, we process large amounts of data from databases like Espacenet (patents), Web of Science (publications), project databases, non-public databases, etc. Thanks to these data sources and unique analytical tools, we are able to provide clients with unique information, relevant recommendations and quality services.
Innovate with UNICO
We are a one-stop-shop for technological innovations. Let us guide you through the process of turning an innovative idea into reality.
We have used UNICO.AI's services to monitor technological trends in the use of ZLD (Zero Liquid Discharge) technologies. In a relatively short period of time, we obtained a well-developed report that both confirmed our findings but also identified another possibility in our research and development activities.

UNICO represents an important partner for CzechInvest in cooperation in business support and innovation. Specifically, important collaboration for the Agency in connecting companies and research organizations.
Head of Regional Office for Central Bohemia and Prague
Unico.ai helped us to find a great academic partner for our research-development project, thanks to which we integrate into our sports simulators support for augmented reality based on the top team of Prof. Herout of VUT in Brno and his team.
In the process of commercializing the device, UNICO.AI was the catalyst for all processes. Thanks to the meticulous administrative work and proactive business activity that UNICO.AI provides, I could only take care of the technical part (development and production) of the device. I know I can count on UNICO.AI.
Researcher at CTU
I had the opportunity to work with Vojtech in setting strategy, communication and negotiation within the investment seed round. We had operational consultations on the different phases. I value his human approach, his very good knowledge of the environment and initiative.
By working together, we have found a solution to our specific situation of transferring rights to the software under development, which has also ensured a sustainable model for its further development and use.
