South moravian centre for international mobility
South Moravian Centre for International Mobility (JCMM) is a specialized nonprofit organization which provides support and assistance to talented students and researchers based in the South Moravian Region. Our aim is to support effectively the incoming of students and researchers into the region and to improve the conditions for further development of talented students studying in South Moravia.
We focus on the following fields:
- support to the incoming of experienced researchers to the region;
- support to the young researchers in the region;
- support to the incoming of international students and young researchers to the region;
- support to the talented grammar school and university students in the region.
The South Moravian Region has been concerned in an international cooperation since 2002. One of
the priorities in this field is to support international cooperation amongst schools, students and teachers on the level of secondary schools and universities.
The numerous experience within the regional activities in international cooperation have ended up in the decision to found a specialized institution, which would shield this sphere of interest - activities in education, scholarships abroad as well as in the Czech Republic. The original motive for establishment of an association was an effort to support internalization of the South Moravian universities.
This process should increase number of international students coming to study at the South Moravian universities either as short-term exchange students or as regular students for the entire university education. The process should also contribute to better mobility of the students and teachers from the South Moravian region. The South Moravian universities emphasize especially on support of future cooperation in research, development and technology transfer in the way of talented PhD students exchange.
The South Moravian Centre for International Mobility contributes to this process by financial support of the activities mentioned above and by active research of opportunities for further cooperation and marketing.
The South Moravian Centre for International Mobility was founded on 15th December 2005 by the Council of the South Moravian region, Masaryk University Brno, Brno University of Technology, Mendel University in Brno and University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Sciences Brno.
