EDU.LAB project launched by Škoda Auto in 2021 presents the most modern technologies in an entertaining way to pupils in the primary and secondary schools. The educational concept of the mobile laboratory includes both demonstrations of advanced technologies and interactive exhibits, where participants can try out the top elements for themselves. The project aims to introduce students to modern technology and introduce them to the possibilities of technical education. Together with its partners, the carmaker wants to motivate students interested in this area to choose a suitable technical high school. More than 14,000 students have visited the lab so far. The topics of greatest interest were cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, Industry 4.0, prototypes and outdoor exhibitions. It will be on the road in 2023 and will visit every county across the country by the end of 2025.

Science has future

Škoda Auto is a long-term partner in the "Science Has a Future" program. We support not only students, but also teachers of technical disciplines, and we are promoting motivation and popularization of science in primary schools. The aim of the Science has Future project is the teachers further development to learn science and technology with interest and to engage students effectively. As part of the initiative, we created 60 methodological materials for teaching physics with a research approach, showing a steady increase from 20 in 2021 to 40 in 2022.

Collaboration with schools

We support numerous secondary vocational schools, more than 40 primary schools, and 40 secondary schools. Additionally, we work closely with 17 universities in Škoda Auto's active regions. Our involvement includes nationwide discussions and projects related to the dual education system concept in Czechia. We donate teaching aids such as car parts, complete cars, and machines to improve technical education. Notable projects we engage in include Formula Student, L&K Award, and Pupil Car.

Technological Literacy and Technology Olympiad

Škoda Auto further supports technical education in the Czech Republic through participation in the Technology Olympiad and technological literacy. The Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the Czech Technical University in Prague and the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sports are sponsoring this series of expert lectures, where pupils learn social sciences, ethics, and technology are connected through programming and mathematics.

Education for system developers

42 Prague, founded by Škoda Auto in 2021, is a peer to-to-peer coding institution in Central and Eastern Europe. Following the establishment of "42 Wolfsburg" in May 2021, "42 Prague" has joined the "École 42" network of programmers as the newest branch. Up to 450 prospective programmers are trained at this institution in software engineering with a focus on social skills and inclusive solutions. In conjunction with Czechitas, 42 Prague also supports IT education for women and kids.

Vocational school

Škoda Auto operates as its branch plant the Secondary Vocational School of Mechanical Engineering, which offers quality vocational education in the fields of mechanical engineering and electrical engineering. In addition, all successful graduates will receive a job offer.


In 2000 Škoda Auto founded the Škoda Auto University, that so far remains the only university in the Czech Republic established by a large multinational company.
