The Czech Science Foundation (GA ČR)

The Czech Science Foundation (also known as the Grant Agency of the Czech Republic, GA CR) was established in 1993 as the main independent public organization with the aim to support basic research in the Czech Republic and promote international collaboration of researchers and research teams on the bilateral and multilateral levels.

On the basic of calls for proposals, the Czech Science Foundation provides financial support for experienced as well as young and early-stage researchers. Moreover, it funds bilateral projects together with projects carried out within international research programmes. The subject of a project proposal is determined by the applicant (bottom-up principle). Around 2,500 project proposals are submitted to the GA CR every year, of which more than one-fourth obtain financial support. The GA CR invites proposals in all disciplines of basic research.

The structure of support is divided into five domains: technical sciences, physical sciences, medical and biological sciences, social sciences and humanities, and agricultural and biological-environmental sciences.

The Technology Agency of the Czech Republic (TA ČR)

The Technology Agency of the Czech Republic is an organisational unit of the state that was founded in 2009 on the support of research, experimental development and innovation. The creation of TA CR is one of the cornerstones of the fundamental reforms in research and development (R&D) in the Czech Republic. The key features of the reform is the redistribution of financial support from the national budget.

The ETA programme will promote the incorporation of social sciences and humanities into projects of applied research, experimental development and innovation, which are beneficial for maintaining and improving the quality of human life in response to dynamic social, economic, globalization, cultural and technological transformations. The programme will support projects that focus on one or more of the following aspects: (a) utilising the benefits of multidisciplinary approaches; (b) linking technical and non-technical research; (c) extracting potential outputs of basic research for application.
