The office's main activities include consultation & networking services and awareness-raising about inspiring Czech experts, projects and initiatives. For this purpose, CZELO yearly organizes or co-organizes more than 20 events, publishes articles on its website, sends out newsletters and provides up-to-date information on social media.

The main subject of interest is the Horizon Europe framework programme. Furthermore, the office is also devoted to other relevant programmes (e.g. Digital Europe, EU4Health, LIFE, EURATOM).

In the field of education, CZELO follows the so-called centralized activities in the field of formal and informal education and youth within the Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps programmes (e.g. European Universities, Alliances for Innovation, Erasmus Mundus and others). It also actively monitors the development of the European Education Area as well as current initiatives and trends in the field of international education.
