  • Notice for researchers with ongoing GA UK projects. The head researcher has to input the supervisor / supervisor into the grant proposal, where according to the rules of GA UK, funding on the basis of DPP or rewards can be granted as a form of payment to the supervisor. In total, worload of 1.2 must not be bridged at the faculty - if your supervisor, for example, is the guarantor of the program, he / she cannot have less than 1.0 workload per contract. The rules stipulate that the university / faculty employee may not have more than 1 week. Therefore, the supervisor cannot be paid remuneration on the basis of agreements (DPP / DPČ). In such cases, please select the remuneration in the form of rewards. It is therefore recommended that faculty staff in the role of supervisor always have a reward in the project proposal, not an agreement. This is set by the head researcher / applicant in the project proposal in the webapps application. The provision of grant funding is governed by the GAUK Guidelines, which are discussed and approved by the Research Board and the University Academic Senate; the Guidelines are also registered with the Ministry of Education. Other bodies involved in the system are the Charles University Grants Board, the GAUK Supervisory Board, and three GAUK subject-area boards (for social sciences, natural sciences and medicine).

  • Drawing a Budget FAQ:

    Question: I am a PhD student in my 3rd year of study, can I apply for GAUK? Won't this prolong my studies?

    As in the last round, the application for a new project can only be submitted by a student during the standard period of master's or doctoral studies. However, the project can be completed even after exceeding the standard study period. Fulfillment of the condition of the standard period of study really only concerns the phase of submitting the application for a new project.

    Question: Can I pay external consultants for the project's personal cost budget, eg in the form of DPČ, DPP?

    Unfortunately, personal expenses for projects such as GAUK and START are a fixed item, which belongs only to the capital. researchers / researchers listed in the project proposal, it is therefore not possible to enter into an employment relationship with an external person outside the project (or outside the CU, who may appear in the project within the research team). It is not even possible to make a change, eg as adding another member of the research team.

    Question: Can I have an external payment in the form of a service / invoice within the budget?

    Yes, only if the given subject is a company / self-employed person, it is possible to draw from non-investment / material costs of the project budget. The entity must therefore issue an invoice for the service and you can report this in the annual report in the project.

    Question: Can I possibly refinance a trip from GAUK that will take place already this year before the start of the project implementation?
