Czech Science Foundation (GACR)

The Czech Science Foundation (GACR) is an independent public organisation supporting basic research throughout all scientific fields from public funds. GACR is the only institution in the Czech Republic, which provides public funding exclusively for basic research projects.

Since its establishment in 1993, GACR has provided financial support for both experienced as well as young and early-stage researchers on the basis of calls for proposals. GACR independently manages targeted and institutional resources allocated directly from the state budget.

On 17 June 2019, the directors of agencies associated in the Central European Science Partnership (CEUS) initiative  signed an agreement on a grant competition that will allow financing joint bilateral or multilateral research projects of researchers from Poland, Austria, the Czech Republic and Slovenia.
