Jan Evangelista Purkyne University

<p>Jan Evangelista Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem is the only public university based in Ústí nad Labem region. Established in 1991, it boasts of being the alma mater of a number of students exceeding 10,000. Operating in a region known for its long-term lowest intellectual standard and highest rate of unemployment in the Czech Republic, the University bears social and cultural responsibility for the intellectual development of the region´s human resources. With a staff of over 800, the University ranks among the biggest employers in the region.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
The type of graduated professionals that are missing in the Ústí nad Labem region are largely experts in natural sciences, technical fields of study, health care, arts and humanities. Hence, prominence in support of an extension of study fields must be given to all types of study courses, i.e. Bachelor, Master´s and doctoral programmes. The existing spatial facilities are no longer capable to cope with the current requirements, and in fact hinder the necessary upswing of the University. In order to further increase the number of graduate population of the Ústí nad Labem region, an adequate material and technical hinterland needs to be created for the students, academics and research associates – with the aim to bring instruction standards up to a level that is on a par with the European average.</p>
