    • European Commission: reform of research evaluation

      Reforming research evaluation is considered a priority to ensure the quality, performance and impact of research. Therefore, in order to gather feedback from stakeholders, the European Commission organised several consultations between March and November 2021.

      Based on the results of the public consultation, the European Commission launched a call for expressions of interest to stakeholders in December 2021 to create a platform to support the reform of research evaluation. The call closed on 10 January 2022 and around 100 applicants applied. Despite the original deadline, the call remains open to further interested parties. If you are interested, please visit the European Commission website for more information.  You can also read more in the CZELO minutes for this meeting.

      According to the indicative timetable of the European Commission, the next step will be to prepare an agreement that will set the principles and objectives of the coalition's cooperation. The team that will be in charge of this task consists of representatives from the European University Association (EUA), the UN, Science Europe and the European Commission. The draft agreement will then be commented on by the wider team. The final signing of the agreement is planned for spring 2022. The initiative was also presented during the Open Science Conference held on 4-5 February as part of the French Presidency of the EU Council.

      The forthcoming call from the National Renewal Plan will enable businesses of all sizes (including self-employed and those doing business in Prague) to purchase electric and hydrogen-powered passenger and commercial vehicles and charging stations. The call should be announced in the first quarter of 2022 by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic.

      The rate of support will be 40 to 60 % (depending on the size of the enterprise). Currently, it is assumed that the subsidy will only be available for vehicles costing a maximum of CZK 1,250,000 excluding VAT. The subsidy will be calculated on the difference between the price of the electric car and a comparable petrol or diesel car. Thus, the maximum they would receive would be: a small enterprise CZK 337,000; a medium-sized enterprise CZK 281,000 and a large enterprise CZK 225,000. This is most likely to be the last subsidy for the purchase of electric cars.

      The first call for Dioscuri centres in the Czech Republic will be published in spring 2022 - up to three proposals may be selected for funding. The initial step is the registration of institutions - expressing interest in building a DIOSCURI centre and declaring their ability to meet all the obligations (this is not a preparation of a proposal, but a declaration of interest and willingness to host a DC in a specific research area). The list of institutions (faculties, institutes) thus registered will then be made available to potential candidates for the position of the head of the DC.
