The town of Telč was selected as the location for CET because a workplace of the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic was already based there, in a rented space, and because of the town’s interest in ensuring its future prosperity by attracting an educated work force.
Telč supports the development of education in the town, as shown by the strategic plan for the development of Telč. The development of education corresponds to the historical traditions of the town. Telč had a significant Jesuit College, and it also had the first secondary school in the Moravian countryside to provide instruction in the Czech language. The proposed project is in accordance with the Land Use Plan for Telč and the overall urban concept for the town. Telč has good transport access to the regional administrative centre and to other large towns (Brno, Prague, Ceske Budejovice). There are direct bus services to many towns, including Prague, Brno and Ceske Budejovice.
An important factor is the support provided by the Vysočina region, which allocated the lot on which the Telč- krajinný park-pavilony VŠ kolejí project has been set up free of charge for the benefit of the project (according to a declaration adopted by the Regional Assembly on 18 July 2007, and by the local authority of the Town of Telč on 3 October 2007).
