Our scientists are successful both at home and abroad
Masaryk University's position as a science leader is linked to its accomplishments in the area of research project acquisition. Our scientists have achieved considerable success with respect to both national and international grant programmes. This is confirmed by official European Commission data, which indicate that MU is the most successful Czech grant funding applicant within the H2020 programme (MU has also been awarded two prestigious European Research Council grants).
This year MU was also the first institution in the Czech Republic to receive the Wellcome Trust in Science grant.
