CARDAM is a unique research and development workplace dealing with the implementation of innovative and technically and technologically advanced solutions and products using advanced mathematical simulations and additive manufacturing technology. CARDAM provides comprehensive engineering solutions for the development of new products and production processes, and it supports companies in developing their new knowledge and know-how in the field.

CARDAM’s goal is to create technical and economic added value for all customers based on effective cooperation between the Czech Academy of Sciences and industrial enterprises. The founding members and owners of CARDAM are the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences and two leading, steadily growing Czech companies, one of which is active in the field of precision engineering and the other in the foundry industry. The Institute of Physics covers a wide range of science and technology fields that pervade additive design and manufacturing. These important resources allow CARDAM to build on current and historical know-how developed by Czech science. The key incentive for industrial enterprises to found CARDAM was to satisfy their long-term need to create a common platform for cooperation with the academic environment. This innovative platform contributes to the development of the future product portfolio and new production procedures, and it enables a dynamic transition to additive design and manufacturing technologies in the Czech Republic and in Europe.


CARDAM s.r.o., as a member of COLT CZ GROUP, is aware of its social responsibility, which is why it adopts measures based on strict compliance with applicable laws and moral and ethical standards. To ensure compliance with moral and ethical standards, as well as the compliance of its procedures and processes with applicable laws, the company has implemented a compliance management system and is committed to following the principles of this system and developing individual elements of the system.



Since its foundation, CARDAM has been actively involved in research activities with the support of the subsidy programmes OP PIK Aplikace, TA CR National Centre of Competence, TA CR Theta, and the Digital Europe Programme (European Digital Innovation Hubs Network).
