The OLTIS Group companies are traditionally successful in EUREKA research and development projects supported by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic. Based on conditions in Grant Agreements, for each ongoing or finishing project an Evaluation Committee meeting must be organised every January to show and prove the project results of the previous year.

Within the final evaluation, this year the EUREKA project E!6725 REAL-Bridge has been successfully presented and evaluated. The project was coordinated by the company JERID in 2012–2015.
