Excellent results

About the grant

The aim of this support is to finalise/upgrade an exceptionally high-quality research result which is in an advanced state of development and is limited only by a lack of financial resources. The result should fulfil the parameters for top results in its field of study and should be successful in any national research evaluation that takes quality into account. The programme will support for example: publication in a journal with a high IF, finalisation of a monograph to be published by a prestigious foreign publisher, etc. The financial support is not for the results of applied research (e.g. patent, utility model or methodology).


Proposals will be accepted between September 23rd and October 28th 2019.

The costs will be eligible retrospectively from 1. 10. 2019.

Only those applications will be accepted, which include significantly above-standard publication results that have been submitted to the press and are in the review process.

Selection Criteria

Financial support can be awarded only to the project proposals fulfilling the following criteria:

  • The applicant is an MU employee engaged in research.
  • The result will be dedicated fully or mostly to MU.
  • There will be bonus points given to an applicant whose result (event. her/his workplace´s scientific results) was nominated for Pillar II of the national evaluation of research.
  • The quality of the result is exceptionally high (eg. an article in a magazine with a high IF, in the first quartile of its field, monography in a prestigious foreign publishing house, etc.)

  • The result is in a high degree of completion.


The maximum amount of support is 1 000 000 CZK for one project for up to 1 year. The economic demands of the study field will be taken into account.
