As a part of his responsibilities, he leads courses of lectures on aspects of organometallic chemistry, advanced inorganic chemistry, NMR spectroscopy and crystallography. He has been NATO-Royal Society Fellow with Prof. Michael F. Lappert at the Sussex University in Brighton in 2003. He spent additional short term stays and lectured at foreign universities (Dijon, Zaragoza, Brussels, Saitama, Zürich, Chemnitz, Graz, and KIT Karlsruhe).

He was given the Premier Award for the best set of papers on spectroscopy in 2002 by the Czech Spectroscopic Society; received Bader Award for Organic Chemistry in 2008. He is the member of the Editorial Board of Applied Organometallic Chemistry, Main Group Metal Chemistry and Crystals. In the present time he is the Chairman of the International Advisory Board of International Conference on the Coordination and Organometallic Chemistry of Germanium, Tin and Lead, is the head of Inorganic Chemistry Council for PhD degree at the University of Pardubice and a member of the Scientific Board of his parent Faculty. He has been a member of the Czech Science Foundation panel in 2009–2012 and is newly elected for period 2015–2019.
