In the following academic year, we are extending our successful mentoring programme for students of Master and Bachelor degree programmes and we are now looking for mentors.
What is mentoring and why become a mentor?
Mentoring is a professional relationship of two people in which a mentor shares his experience and knowledge with a mentee. The mentor acts as a guide and helps the mentee to find the right direction in a particular area or topic.
By working with students, you have not only the opportunity to pass on your experience, but you also get a fresh look at your work or new contacts, and you will not only support student’s development but also your own.
The UCT Prague mentoring for students runs during the academic year; from October to June. Students work with a more experienced mentor in an area they are interested in for future. We are looking for mentors in companies, same as in the scientific and academic spheres, and we also do not forget about doctoral studies.
If you want to become a mentor, please fill in this registration form.
May you have any questions considering the mentoring programme, please contact the programme coordinator Radka Nováková.

On June 20, 2018, scientific prizes to the Czech Republic were awarded by the French Embassy at Buquoy Palace, presented by French Nobel Prize winners and major world scientists: Jean-Marie Lehn, Jean-Pierre Sauvage, and Serge Haroche. The Nobel Prize winners honored 21 young scientists who published breakthroughs in their disciplines last year. The award ceremony was followed by the Sounds of Science conference, which linked the world of science with the world of music and featured a work entitled “Daily Patterns” by composer and UCT Prague graduate Petr Cígler.
The general public had the opportunity to take part in the Meet the Nobelists conference on June 21, at which Jean-Maria Lehn and Jean-Pierre Sauvage discussed their research and further development directions in their scientific pursuits.
Jean-Marie Lehn is the winner of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry and has, of the three Nobelists, probably visited our university the most. Nevertheless, each of his visits to UCT Prague is a very welcome and pleasant event. On Friday, June 22, he first briefly talked to the Rector about the quality of Czech beer, wine, and cheese, and afterwards discussed details of his next visit to Prague in June 2019. The members of the UCT Prague orchestra prepared a surprise for Prof. Lehn: in front of the bust of Prof. Votočka they played one of Votoček’s compositions. After this emotional moment, Jean-Marie Lehn took the time to sit down with students, to answer their questions, and –most importantly—to motivate everyone present to more diligent and strenuous scientific work.
A Conferral Ceremony of Doctor Honoris Causa upon Prof. Jiří Drahoš, former President of the Czech Academy of Sciences and UCT Prague alumnus, took place on Friday, 24 November, at the Dancing House (Tančící dum) in Prague.
Kobe University is pursuing further academic collaboration between Japan and Europe through its Brussels European Centre and Kobe University Liaison Office in Kraków. As a member of the Kobe University Advisory Board, Prof. Drahoš has shared his vast experience as President of the Czech Academy of Sciences to strengthen the international activities of Kobe University in Europe.
Recognizing his significant role and contribution to Europe, the Czech Republic, and Kobe University, Kobe University has conferred a Kobe University Doctor Honoris Causa upon Prof. Drahoš.
