• Education


Evolve in the field of entrepreneurship! ► We provide practical and interdisciplinary education focused on entrepreneurship and idea incubation for undergraduate and postgraduate students, scientists and other employees from all over Charles University, as well as for the general public as a part of the lifelong learning program.

Each of our courses is unique in its connection to practice and can serve as a complement or extension of curricula across disciplines and faculties. Why entrepreneurship?

Courses about entrepreneurship we offer in Czech

In the winter semester 2023/2024 we are not opening any courses in English.

Management of Science and Innovation

The one-semester course focuses on innovation and the topic of applying research results in practice.

Learn how to actively look for applications for the results of your research or studies. The course will introduce how to better anticipate future social trends and how to think innovatively. You will also gain insight into the process of social science and technology transfer (transfer of science into practice), including the protection of intellectual property.

Innovation Lab: Start a project

A practical project seminar in the form of a ten-week challenge to move your own idea to realisation.

Experience the process of creating a new service or product from idea to implementation. And maybe even bring the project to life. The course, which is open to all students across all disciplines and faculties of Charles University, also offers the possibility to work on your own podcast.

Podnikni to! - Business course

A successful business course, which has already been attended by more than 6,000 students.

Are you hesitating whether or not to do business? A course of eight practical workshops focused on basic entrepreneurial knowledge and skills will show you how to transform your idea step by step into a real business with the potential for success.

Living laboratory of collaboration

A practical project course where you will experience collaboration on a real socially relevant event.

Experience very intensive collaboration on your own skin and at the same time gain theoretical basics of self-management, teamwork and cooperation in the organization, which you will be able to use immediately in practice when preparing an event at the Hybernská Campus.

Text by Jan Velinger, 8. 7. 2021

"To an outsider, the IP or intellectual property regime can seem complicated.

When you add all the different geographic jurisdictions worldwide and realise that certain categories need to be registered within different jurisdictions separately, it can appear a little complex," says James Heller,
