The Czech Academy of Sciences (CAS) is a significant scientific institution, which builds on a more than two-hundred-year tradition of academies and scientific societies here in our territory. The main mission of the Czech Academy of Sciences and its institutes is the implementation of basic research in a wide spectrum of natural, technical, humanities and social sciences. This research endeavours to advance knowledge on an international level, while respecting the current needs of Czech society and domestic culture. The institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences share in education, primarily through the training of young researchers when they implement their doctoral study programmes, but also through the teaching activity of their employees at higher education institutes.
The Czech Academy of Sciences is financed for the most part from the state budget. Besides the institutional financing of the research plans of the institutes of the CAS, goal-oriented financing, focused on the resolution of scientific projects and grants selected in public competitions, has become ever more distinctly used. The achievement and maintenance of top level research and development and the application of its results will naturally depend to a great extent not only on the above-mentioned support from the state, European Union and possibly other partners but also on the support provided from non-public sources.
The subject of support and partnership is the engagement of significant institutions in the area of science and business, development of cooperation with applied research and industry, formation of shared values and space for sharing joint goals and strategies through support of science and science popularisation. The support of a scientific institution is always perceived by society as an important act in the area of the social responsibility of firms, which significantly contributes to the building of the good name of the partner organisation.
