4EU+ Jointly supervised theses

Dear colleagues, Dear students,

Within the framework of 4EU+ University Alliance, we are trying to start an initiative on jointly supervised theses. (Mainly MSc theses.) So far the programme is not formalised on the level of double degree or joint degree, but even now it opens you the possibility to write a thesis in cooperation with a researcher based on a partner university, and familiarise yourself with the academic environment at the corresponding partner university.

On Thursday, November 25, 2021 at 17:00 we are organising, together with the partner universities (Heidelberg, Sorbonne, Warsaw) a ZOOM presentation of this initiative, see special webpage for details. We are planning to introduce researchers from the partner universities and introduce possible research topics.

We encourage all students to participate in this event, even if they are not just now interested in the project. We think that it might be interesting to see what is happening. Bachelor students will get an idea on prospective study opportunities at master level, master students (first year) will get an idea on prospective topics for their thesis, and other students will simply get familiar with some of our existing or prospective research partners. Students from partner universities are expected to participate in the meeting as well.

New lectures in academic year 2021/2022

Dear students,

new lectures that might be of interest for you are opening in the academic year 2021/2002. Please see the links below.

Professor Jean-Philippe Lessard (McGill University, Canada) is going to spent the next academic year in Prague as a visiting professor. He will be teaching two lectures:

Michal Pavelka and Artem Ryabov are opening the lecture Thermodynamics of nonequilibrium processes (thermodynamics of linear and nonlinear nonequilibrium processes).

Professor Eduard Rohan is going to restart lectures on biomechanics that have a long tradition in our department thank to professor František Maršík; Eduard Rohan will be teaching the lecture Modelling in biomechanics.

If you are aware of a lecture that might be of interest for mathematical modelling students, please let us (Vít Průša, know, we will be happy to advertise it!

4EU+ Shared courses: Winter semester 2021-2022

Dear students,

if you are interested you can enroll for lectures given in online regime at our partner universities in 4EU+ alliance (Charles University, Heidelberg University, Sorbonne University, University of Copenhagen, University of Milan, University of Warsaw and Sorbonne University). The list of lectures is available here. It is a new initiative, hence you can expect a considerable amount of friction in the process, but it might be worth of it.
