The funding of science within the Czech Republic is governed by Act No. 130/2002 Coll., on the Support of Research, Experimental Development and Innovation, as well as by the rules of the providers, which are individual ministries and agencies, such as Czech Science Foundation (GAČR) or the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic. Thematic competitions vary according to the focus of the ministries and agencies that announce the competitions. In all types of competitions, applicants - researchers from the Charles University - achieve very good results.
More information about current competitions can be found on the website of the Information System for Research, Experimental Development and Innovation (IS VaVal; only in czech).
ATTENTION! In some public competitions, an entity (ID number) can be a bidder in only one project proposal, regardless of its role (main bidder or other participant). If the applicant appears in more than one project, no project with the appearance of this applicant will be admitted to the public competition - for this reason, it is necessary that those interested in participating in this competition immediately contact the staff responsible for grants in the UK units or the Department for Science and Research to ensure coordination of participation in the competition for the whole UK.
If you have any questions or doubts about whether and how to apply for the competition, or who to inform about it, do not hesitate to contact the science support department, either at your faculties or institutes or directly at the Rector's Office. It is always better to ask and not miss out on the opportunity to participate in the competition and receive substantial funding for your research.
Charles University has many years of experience in applying for and winning these projects, so don't be afraid to ask your colleagues.
The contact person for all the projects listed below is at the Department of Science and Research of the RUK Mgr. Ing. Kateřina Turková
