Primus Research Programme

What is the Primus Research Programme?

Primus is a programme of the Charles University (CU) with aim to encourage young researchers with international experience to establish new research groups and laboratories. Selected young scientists will be enabled to run their own independent projects during a period of 3-5 years. One of the long-term goals of the research programme is to increase the success rate of the University in attracting major international grants (e.g., European Research Council – ERC grants).
