Rector of the University of Opole, Prof. Marek Masnyk was elected chairman of the Polish-Czech Association of Universities. The rector of the University of Opava, Prof. Eng. Pavel Tuleja became the vice chairman.
– We have a lot of work to do. We have planned that by May next year I will organize the secretariat of the Association, collect documents from the past, prepare a statute, develop a new formula of action, create an advisory board consisting of young scientists who will be able to gather enthusiasts – says Prof. Masnyk.
The main goal of the Association will be cooperation, realized primarily in the joint application for research grants and conducting scientific research, not only in humanities, but also other sciences. Representatives of local governments and scientific institutions from the regions where the affiliated universities operate are invited to cooperate.
