The program “Bavarian-Czech Academic Projects 2022” Program supports academic projects of Bavarian universities with partners from the higher education and science sectors in the Czech Republic. The aim of this program is to pave the way for continued cooperation in research and teaching, both in terms of content and with regard to later acquisition of third-party funding, for example for applications to EU research funding programs.

Support is provided, for example, for Bavarian-Czech conferences, scientific workshops, seminars, excursions, project discussions, project preparation, etc. Projects involving young scientists (master's students, doctoral students) are particularly welcome.

It is planned to support academic projects between Bavaria and the Czech Republic, which will be carried out and settled until the beginning of December 2022.

Applications for funding can be made for a maximum of 5,000 euros (depending on the type and scope of the project). A personal contribution is welcome.

Applications are possible on an ongoing basis.
