Our mission is science and research

State-of-the-art equipment, cutting-edge technologies and international cooperation. This is what research at MU is all about.

We are dedicated to establishing the right priorities, committed to securing sufficient funding and fully aware of the ethical and social implications of our research results.

Research at MU and coronavirus

Despite the closure of the MU Headquarters building, the Research Office staff is accessible via phone and e-mail: contacts. Individual project agendas are fully secured - the Research Office will immediately forward all current news to its contacts at individual economic centers.

It is not yet possible to estimate the impact of measures on project implementation - the situation is continuously evolving. Please do not contact the provider individually - contact the Research Office so that the university can act uniformly.

GAMU projects - news is published in News on GAMU website. GAMU will do its best to help you within the limits allowed by the rules on the use of institutional support, respectively support for specific research.

To be informed, we recommend to follow providers’ websites and social networks - the situation is constantly evolving, so it is not possible to now compile a permanently valid summary of providers' responses.

“Science is no longer a matter of an individual but requires collaboration of experts from various disciplines, institutions, often even continents. Masaryk University offers quality facilities and opportunities for its scientists as well as for scientists from abroad and thus it creates good conditions for continuous development of knowledge. The diversity and freedom of science, responsible world-class research, societal engagement, and cooperation are values that our university honors and promotes.”
