Ga ČRIn December 2021, the Czech Science Foundation has selected research projects to be funded starting in January 2022. In the competition of hundreds of projects from all over the Czech Republic, a total of 5 projects from the Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové (FaF UK) were funded, which will bring a total of 35 416 000 CZK (1.5 mil. EUR) to Faculty in the next three years.

The project of Mgr. Ing. Tomáš Hodík, Dr. rer. nat., titled Chalcogen Bonding Catalysis - New Perspective in Organocatalysis, was selected for funding in the POSTDOC INDIVIDUAL FELLOWSHIP INCOMING call. This was the only project submitted by the faculty.

The other four projects from FaF UK were selected to be funded in the STANDARD PROJECTS call:
