The Police Academy of the Czech Republic in Prague
Links between education and scientific research activities
The aims of the university's research plan create good conditions for using the results of research activity in education. Some outcomes are implemented directly in education as study literature or teaching aids. In particular, within the framework of the integrated study project entitled "Optimising the System of Education at the Police Academy of the Czech Republic," they are used for specific measures in the methodology and organisation of tuition at university faculties.
Through the accreditation and launch of studies in a doctoral study programme, the university has taken on responsibility for training a new generation of science and research workers. A given priority is to make studies more effective and to ensure that doctoral thesis topics are more closely linked to the scientific research activity of departments and scientific research establishments.
The university cooperates with other entities in dealing with the research plan and scientific research projects. These entities not only include those that operate within the department. It also concerns a number of institutes operating in the non-governmental sector.
