Science and Research Activities 2018

GRANTS:

The Faculty of Economics started with solving two new international projects. The project Environmental Citizenships: Visions of Future and Their Acceptance Among Students is supported by The European Cooperation in Science and Technology. The main aim and objective of the program are to enable scientific developments in the field of Environmental Citizenship leading to new conceptualizations and new products and thereby contributing to strengthening European research and innovation capacities in the field. The POWER4BIO project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No. 818351. New 2,5 year H2020 international project started in October 2018. The Czech part of the project was focused on research and promotion of bioeconomy in the South Bohemia Region.

The Faculty of Economics acquired the project  Exchange rate prevention system supported by the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic. The result of applied research of the TAČR project is currently heading for the realization in the pilot version. It is available at var.ef.jcu.cz. It is an application that helps the user to estimate a possible exchange rate loss on his/her claim or debt. Starting in March 2020, this application is going to be available in full version on the portal businessinfo.cz, which will ensure the access of a professional public to the results of applied research of the Faculty of Economics. Whereas researchers in the Czech Republic and abroad do not know a similar freely available application, this applied research has a prospective economic impact on society, especially in today's turbulent times (Brexit, US / China / EU trade wars).
