Strategy of the Development of the ASCR for 2014–2020 Jiří Drahoš www.avcr.cz
ASCR Strategy 1/7 In establishing the Strategy, we were faced with several fundamental questions: 1) What are we? What is our current situation? 2) What do we want to be? Which goals do we set for ourselves? 3) How do we achieve it?
ASCR Strategy 2/7 1) What are we? What is our current situation? The institutes of the ASCR primarily orientate on: basic research in a broad spectrum of the natural, technical and social sciences and humanities resolution of highly specialised or extensive interdisciplinary projects, which require long- term concentration of the capacities and an expensive infrastructure education process, which is closely tied to their research activities
ASCR Strategy 3/7 2)What do we want to be? Which goals do we set for ourselves? It is for the ASCR to be: dynamic and active institution, which reflects and co-forms life in all its connections and transformations research organization, which creates a reliable institutional base for the next generation of researchers institution, which bears its share of responsibility for the quality of life of the future generations of citizens of the Czech Republic
ASCR Strategy 4/7 3)How do we achieve it? by enhancing scientific quality & production through more substantial support of excellent research by concentration of research capacities in selected strategic directions of research across the wide spectrum of the individual scientific fields by endeavouring for the advancement of knowledge on both national and international level respecting at the same time current needs of Czech society
ASCR Strategy 5/7 Points of departure for Strategy: evaluation of research institutions in the ASCR 2010-2011 balancing of powers and responsibilities within the ASCR blurring borders between the traditional categories of scientific work rapid boom in new scientific disciplines and technologies accelerating transformations in society globalisation and the internationalisation of the world economy science, education and new technologies - main factors of the competitiveness of society social relevance of science and research - a criterion of their financing CNRS and the system of its organisation and administration
ASCR Strategy 7/7 Practical consequences of the Strategy : interconnectedness of not only research topics but also basic and applied research increasing the efficiency of scientific work emphasis on the role of non-university research in the CR assessment of the results within the set directions of research activity and not the individual institute gradual transition to programme financing
