welcome to the somopro PROGRAMME

The South Moravian Programme for Distinguished Researchers is a fellowship programme that aims to attract top class researchers to the South Moravian Region.


Characteristics of the programme

SoMoPro Programme supports projects in science, medicine and technology. Research topics are chosen freely by the applicants. The fellows are provided with training opportunities and career development.

The Programme runs since 2009. In the 1st and the 2nd pilot calls the grants were divided between 6 Czech and 21 international researchers. The second phase of the programme, SoMoPro II, started in 2012 and offered two more calls. Within the third and fourth call 26 more scientits were granted support, 9 Czech and 17 international researchers. Currently SoMoPro 3 is being prepared. The new programme will start on September 1, 2015.

The Programme is administered by the South Moravian Centre for International Mobility (JCMM), which carries out all the application and evaluation procedures. The final approval of grants agreements is, however, fully in competence of The South Moravian Region, the Programme Coordinator.

The Programme is part of the Regional Innovation Strategy of South Moravian Region. Would you like to learn more about the Programme?
