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.

Petr Dvořák

“Good science is a matter of both the mind and the heart. Masaryk University has and will continue to have many good scientists. We provide cutting-edge facilities and all that we ask is that they care for those minds and hearts, i.e. their intellectual growth and motivation, in a responsible manner.

I believe it would be ill-advised to consider ours a state-of-the-art European research and educational institution were it not for the opinions of others who say so as well. In my opinion it is therefore essential that our scientific results be comparable with the world elite and that the social impact of these results be as pronounced as possible.”

We participate in key infrastructures

MU Research infrastructures are an important pillar of research and innovation systems.

Their significance is emphasized by our participation in 15 projects listed in the Czech National Roadmap for Large RDI Infrastructures.

Nine of these projects are also part of research infrastructures of pan-European interest included in the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) for 2016.

About the projects

We provide our scientists with excellent working conditions

International grant projects

We have successfully obtained numerous international grants. The European Research Council (ERC) is tasked with awarding grants to top scientists from the 28 EU member states and associated countries; MU currently boasts three ECR grant holders.

Regional innovation support

The SoMoPro programme is co-funded by the Horizon 2020 programme, Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions and the South Moravian region. Of 62 projects supported by the region to date, 44 were awarded to scientists associated with MU.
