Support of developing foreign cooperation

It is very likely that in 2019 the Foreign department of UP Rectorate will again provide our Faculty with additional resources for the development of new foreign collaboration. As in last year, only travel costs of Faculty staff or short-term visits of foreign professors, related to creation of new cooperation can be paid from these resources (but no personal expenses can be paid from these funds). If you are planning a trip or a visit that meets the above definition, you can pre-apply for (partial) financial support by Waleria Slowikova ( Vice-Dean for International Affairs, prof. Dušek, will decide on granting the support with regard to the degree of completion of the cooperation, with an effort to evenly cover the fields and, of course, with regard to the available financial means. Please take into account that the funds will be limited (the exact amount is not yet known) and there is no legal claim to this subsidy.

Academic Senate

The upcoming meeting of the Faculty Senate will be held on Wednesday, February 6, 2019, at 10:00 pm in the Dean's Large Meeting Room (6.014).

Faculty Operation

A new decree on the use of private vehicles for business trips
The Decree issued in January
informs on what compensation the employee is entitled to, when using a private vehicle on a business trip (foreign and domestic). The decree stipulates that an employee can use a vehicle fueled by: petrol 95, petrol 98 and diesel.

Given the fact that the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs does not provide compensation for vehicles with different propulsion (electric vehicle, gas or petrol 91), it cannot be calculated.

Notices for employees and students
Due to heavy frosts, we ask all employees and students entering and exiting the main building of the Faculty to try to minimize their opening time when using any entrance door. In particular, it involves situations where something is moved through the door, goods are being transported, etc. It causes a rapid decrease of the temperature on the ground floor.
