We attract top-class scientists from abroad to the research institutions
in the region of South Moravia.

The South Moravian Programme for Distinguished Researchers, SoMoPro, provides host institutions with financial support that covers the research costs as well as personal expenses. It supports projects in science, medicine and technology.

Who can apply:

  • scientists in possession of a doctoral degree or with at least 4 years of research experience,
  • foreign and Czech researchers who have spent at least 2 out of the last 3 years outside the Czech Republic.

Selection is carried out by an international expert committee. The next call will open in Autumn 2016.
