Scientific Council

Scientific Council

The Scientific Council takes care of the development and strategy of the scientific and research activities of the Faculty of Social Sciences. It is the Dean’s advisory arm in outlining long-term strategies in this field.

The Scientific Council has the following legal assignments:

  1. Discuss long-term plans for the Faculty’s educational, scientific, research and development, artistic and other activities drawn in compliance with the long-term planning endeavors of a public institution of higher learning;
  2. Approve study programs to be taught at the Faculty;
  3. Participate in procedures to appoint associate professors and full professors within legally set limits.

The Dean appoints the members of the Scientific Council from among leading experts in the fields pursued by FSV UK. Scientists from non-Charles University centres account for at least one third of the members of the Scientific Council.
