The contest of University research centres is focused especially on supporting young perspective academics and scientists in the highest quality groups of basic research. The funding from UNCE enables already internationally recognized research groups to develop and deepen their scientific research.


The goal of Primus Programme is to support academic staff (usually with experience from abroad) in founding new research groups and laboratories at the University. There is a significant premise - the principal investigator of the project is obliged to (before the end of the initial project) try and apply for ECR grant. In case of projects from area of humanities and social sciences it's possible to apply for a different type of external grant.


Specific university research is held mainly by students while they are realizing accredited doctoral and master study programmes.
