Support research and development activities of promising scientists and allow them realize their ideas, establish cooperation in the Czech Republic or abroad, and support them in finding solutions to (not only) environmental problems.
Jaroslav Tupý Endowment Fund (NFJT) was founded in memory of an exceptional scientist Dr. Tupý,to honour his exceptionally productive life-long scientific work, his love for nature and plants, and also his modesty, humility and willingness to help others. We think that these characteristics should be an example and inspiration for young scientific generations. We would like to support them on behalf of Dr. Tupý in realization of their ideas and allow them to extend their studying and job possibilities.
NFJT supports research and development activities related to plant biology by granting financial contributions to students and (especially young) scientists of IEB AV ČR, or foreign scientists working at least partially at the IEB AV ČR. Fund supports international cooperation, acquiring and maintaining contacts, exchange of knowledge and finding common solutions to social and environmental problems.
Applicants for endowment contribution may implement their projects at the IEB AV ČR, in commercial sphere, public administration or non-profit sector (e.g. research institutes) in the Czech Republic or abroad.
Endowment grants shall usually be contributed in a form of cash. These grants are provided on the basis of a decision of Managing board after assessing the subjective circumstances of every project, that means after evaluation of the following criteria:
originality and a new approach/novelty;
benefits for the field of study;
international significance of the research;
an output of a specific research and its presentation;
the possibility of popularisation and building of reputation of the IEB.
