Competition starts for Prague university faculties

  • Comment

Charles University in Prague has launched a competition for a 47,000m² project to deliver two new faculties on its Albertov Campus

Both planned to complete in 2021, the proposed Biocentrumand Globcentrum research centres will replace an existing canteen and car park on the prominent inner-city site.

The Biocentrum will focus on medical and biological sciences while the Globcentrum will become an interdisciplinary centre for researching global developments.

A new 300-capacity auditorium, bistro, study room, sports area and meetings facility will also be delivered.

According to the brief: ‘The Charles University and all its participating faculties view this as an extraordinary development challenge and the largest investment in several decades.’

The document continued: ‘The Biocentrum and Globcentrum of the Albertov Campus should attract excellent research teams from the ranks of current employees of the participating faculties. They will also provide opportunities for other top scientists from the Czech Republic and abroad.’

Eight teams will be shortlisted and the first place winner will receive around £40,000. A second place prize of £27,000 and third place prize worth around £19,000 will also be awarded.

Finalists who fail to win prizes will meanwhile receive an honorarium of around £6,800 each.

The competition language is Czech and the deadline for submissions is 15 January.
