Joint Initiative with Central European University

The CEU-SU Joint Academic Initiative aims to strengthen academic capacities at both institutions, to produce valuable academic results, as well as to foster mutually beneficent academic cooperation between them. The Initiative will provide financial support to competitively selected cooperative research and education projects in academic areas strategically important for both universities. The eligible activities include:

  1. Cooperative educational activities (e.g. student and faculty exchanges, joint development or teaching of courses, seminars and summer schools);
  2. Cooperative research projects aimed at producing original knowledge;
  3. Joint exploratory and planning activities such as exploratory workshops and meetings to develop joint ideas, research and education plans, etc.

The projects should start in 2011-2012 academic year (the earliest start date is August 2011) and have the maximum duration of 24 months.
