Enabling excellent research
Research infrastructure capacities and expertise enable excellent research, support technological innovation, and drive multidisciplinary data-based science.
Research infrastructures at Masaryk University
Masaryk University's research infrastructures are part of the European Strategic Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) projects. Masaryk university coordinates the ESFRI infrastructure for human exposure Research, EIRENE.
At the national level, Masaryk University is involved in 14 large research infrastructures, of which it coordinates four (CEPLANT, CIISB, CZECRIN a RECETOX). The infrastructures cover most of the scientific research areas.
Supporting Open Science
Masaryk University research infrastructures create an ecosystem enabling the implementation of Open Science principles in the Czech Republic and Europe. Open science requires the open sharing of technologies and expertise, but also of knowledge and data, enabling their further use and application in the public and private sectors.
Shared labs provide researchers and other users across disciplines access to unique technologies, research capacilities, samples, and data.
State-of-the-art equipment and unique capacities are operated by specially trained technicians and research teams, allowing the most efficient use of the shared laboratories.
Research capacities are available not only to Masaryk University’s scientific teams but also to other national and international users from academia and private sectors.
Key documents and strategies
The ESFRI Roadmap is a key document for Europe. It includes the European research infrastructure projects and landmarks that have been identified as a priority for the development of the European Research Area. At the national level, the Roadmap of Large Research Infrastructures of the Czech Republic defines the so-called Large Research Infrastructures approved for funding from Czech public funds.
