Projects and grants are an important element in supporting science and research. They are the main source of funding for science and research at VSB-TUO and an important motivating factor for researchers. For example, in 2020, seven new Horizon 2020 projects were launched at VSB-TUO. Researchers here are thus involved in the implementation of 17 prestigious international projects with a total budget of over 8 million EUR and two large infrastructure projects (e-INFRA CZ and ENREGAT) worth almost 270 million CZK.
The Project Support Centre, assists and supports researchers and teachers in preparing project applications for grants from national and international sources.
Master's and PhD students have the opportunity to participate in the Student Grant Competition (SGS), which is financially supported by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports. The aim of SGS is to increase and support the scientific research activities of PhD and Master's students in collaboration with academic staff. The main objective of the Doctoral Grant Competition (DGS), which was first announced in 2021, is to support the scientific research projects carried out by full-time doctoral students at VSB-TUO.
