It ensures cooperation with our partner universities abroad, whether it is cooperation in the field of education or scientific research activities. Its Head is the main coordinator of the activities implemented within the Erasmus+ programme and in general of all international exchanges, including both study and work stays and internships of students and staff.
When to contact the International Office?
The PRIGO University works on many research and development projects every year. Our research institute sets up research teams that include both senior and junior workers from the Czech Republic and abroad. In order to make progress in the field of international scientific research cooperation, we would like to welcome colleagues from abroad to our teams, both full-time and part-time. We offer cooperation on projects and research in the field of social sciences, especially economics, economic policy, law and social policy and social work. However, we also welcome new research topics from colleagues from abroad that have a social impact and on which we could collaborate. Let’s get together!
We are also available to students and applicants from abroad who are interested in studying in the Czech Republic within one of our actualy offered accredited study programmes.
At the International Office, also students and staff of the PRIGO University will receive all information about current calls, projects and other international activities in which they can participate, including international mobility and the Erasmus + programme.

Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad. Set to last until 2020, Erasmus+ doesn’t just have opportunities for students. Merging seven prior programmes, it has opportunities for a wide variety of individuals and organisations. The aim of Erasmus+ is to contribute to the Europe 2020 strategy for growth, jobs, social equity and inclusion, as well as the aims of ET2020, the EU’s strategic framework for education and training. Erasmus+ also aims to promote the sustainable development of its partners in the field of higher education, and contribute to achieving the objectives of the EU Youth Strategy.
