AMU Project Competition


Based on Rector’s Decree No. 9/2020, the PROJECT COMPETITION for the distribution and use of institutional support for long-term conceptual development (“IP DKR”) of AMU in 2023 was called with the deadline for submission of the electronic version of applications by 28 November 2022. The competition is intended for academic and research workers and entails financial support for research activities resulting in scientific output, i.e., specialised monographs, articles in reviewed periodicals or proceedings, and organising conferences or workshops.


  • For the year 2023, the competition is open to science/research projects with a total term of implementation of 1 to 2 years or 3-5 years. 
  • The financial backing of the competition depends on the amount of the institutional support for long-term conceptual development of the research organisation. The expected amount to be distributed in this round of the project competition for 2023 will be approximately CZK 4,000,000. 
  • The project result should primarily be an output that can be included in the Register of Information on Results (“RIV”) under the current Methodology for the Evaluation of Research Organisations’ Results.
  • Applicants shall submit grant applications using the required form electronically form to Peta Horká (petra.horka@famu.cz) within the set deadline. The form in the .zfo format can be completed using the Software602 Form Filler application software (available for download here), or it is possible to use a web form (you can find the links at the end of this document) or a form in MS Word, because Mac users tend to face technical difficulties with .zfo files,).
  • Projects with outputs planned as book publications are subject to the rule that if the release is planned through Nakladatelství AMU, the applicant shall ask Director of NAMU Jan Heller (jan.heller@amu.cz) at least one week prior to submitting the application for the publisher to prepare such budget. If the output is to be released through an external publisher, project plans may only include the cost of covering the publisher’s anticipated loss; more detailed information is available in the relevant Decree.
  • The projects are first assessed by the FAMU Grant Committee; the final decision is made by the AMU Grant Committee, for which the assessment issued by the FAMU Grant Committee is not binding.
