This page gives important information on the procedure for grant applications and details of how to register Charles University in relevant databases.

Applications for International grants – Charles University Registration Details

  • Ensure you always enter the correct official details of Charles University in relevant databases. The address should always be that of the University: Ovocný trh 3/5, 116 36 Praha 1; it is NOT the address of your faculty or institute. The same details must be given in all international applications, regardless of whether the agency is situated within or outside the EU and regardless of whether the grant is funded via an EU programme or not.

  • Please do not register yourself in any database as an employee of Charles University without informing the Research Department at the Rectorate; by doing so you will probably make it impossible for other applicants at the University to register their own grant applications.

  • If (e.g. due to time pressure) you are forced to register Charles University with an agency, please inform the Research Department at the Rectorate of this fact without delay.

  • You can request registration by sending an email to (tel. 224 491 731), copied to the Head of the Department .

International Visegrad Fund

The International Visegrad Fund (IVF) was established on 9 June 2000. Its member states (collectively known as the ‘V4’) are the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. The Fund’s supreme bodies are the Conference of Ministers of Foreign Affairs and the Council of Ambassadors. Responsibility for day-to-day operations rests with the Executive Director, who is based at the Fund’s head office in Bratislava. The Fund’s official language is English. The purpose of the International Visegrad Fund is to contribute to close cooperation among member states and to strengthen links in culture, research, education, youth exchanges, tourism and cross-border cooperation. The Fund’s budget is made up of four equal annual contributions, one from each member state.
