INTER-EXCELLENCE PROJECT LTI17018 carried out by SU Opava & ASU Prague
The PIRX Relativistic Astrophysics Branch Contact Organization
Our branch contact organization was established in 2017 within the framework of the INTER-EXCELLENCE Project No. LTI17018 (PIRX, Promotion and Development of International Scientific Cooperation in Relativistic Astrophysics and Preparation of X-ray Space Missions).
The PIRX is closely specialized in relativistic astrophysics, X-ray space missions and related issues. PIRX creates information, knowledge and infrastructure prerequisites for involving relevant entities from the Czech Republic in international R&D&I programs. In order to gain and share information on the possibilities of international scientific cooperation, PIRX focuses on information meetings and networking events, active search for information on support for international scientific cooperation, information on the possibilities of scientific cooperation in a defined area and information events and seminars.
In order to create the necessary infrastructure and to strengthen the institutional capacity for international scientific cooperation, PIRX implements also educational activities. These are aimed at the scientific staff on the possibilities of scientific cooperation in the field of preparation and implementation (or project management) of international scientific projects aimed at enhancing scientific excellence and publishing on the basis of the results of international scientific cooperation in the field of relativistic astrophysics.
Main activites in 2017
We extended our international collaboration in the field of relativistic astrophysics and X-ray space missions. Our Branch Contact Organization supported namely the following activities and results: 1 international project application, 1 international contract, 7 research stays, 2 papers in prestigious journals, 1 conference proceedings book, 3 workshops, and 10 conference presentations.
