CEFRES, the Charles University in Prague (UK) and the Czech Academy of Sciences (CAS) are now united within a Czech-French scientific cooperation platform named “CEFRES Platform.” The Platform initiates common scientific programmes. It supports scientific training for young researchers and the publishing of common academic research. A steering committee gathers the three partner research institutions. It convenes three times a year.

The French Research Center in Humanities and Social Sciences in Prague (CEFRES, USR CNRS 3138), CNRS, and the Czech Academy of Sciences (AV ČR) launch every two years a call for applications for the “TANDEM” incubator program. “TANDEM” is a program of the CEFRES Platform and endeavors to excellency in social sciences and humanities.
