The Science and Research Centre at UP Faculty of Health Sciences (UP FHS) represented the Czech Republic during a special study visit to the IBEC (Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia) research centre in Barcelona. The three-day event provided a unique opportunity for sharing knowledge and building international partnerships in science and research.

The prestigious event brought together twenty research managers from various European countries that are facing specific challenges related to the development of science and research. Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Slovakia, Malta, Armenia, Tunisia, Romania, Greece, Poland, and other countries were represented in Barcelona. The Science and Research Centre at UP FHS was represented by its project manager Marika Svrčková.

 “Participation in the study visit was a great opportunity for us to gain insight into the functioning of top research centres in Western Europe, share our knowledge, and establish valuable collaborations across the continent and beyond. Cooperation and mutual learning are key factors in the development of science and research. For our centre, participating in this event was an invaluable experience,” said Svrčková.

During the three-day programme, research managers were acquainted with best practices in research management, innovative training programmes, participation in competitive funding for science and research, and support for technology transfer. Institutional initiatives, large-scale projects, and issues of open science and ethics in research were also discussed.

The study visit took place under the auspices of the Technology Centre Prague as part of the ongoing NCP_WIDERA-NET project, which aims to provide researchers and research managers from “widening countries” with access to practices and networks of excellence.
