Start-up grants are designed to support pilot projects for new research programmes. The aim is to obtain pilot data, to introduce and validate a new methodology, and to provide the basis for the development of a full-fledged project funded by an external grant agency. A necessary outcome of the project is the submission of a project application to an external grant agency with FM MU as the main beneficiary/applicant.
Internal Grant Agency FM MU
The aim of the Internal Grant Agency of Faculty of Medicine of Masaryk University (InGA) is to enhance the quality and prestige of research at FM MU, to increase the success of FM MU in obtaining national and international prestigious grants, to increase the potential for practical application of research results, and to support internationalisation and sustainability of human resources in FM MU research. The support is intended for FM MU staff involved in research. Emphasis is placed on the research excellence of the applicants and the quality of the submitted project proposals and projects.

InGA competitions are announced in the following categories:
Only the head of an already established research group of an FM MU department, or his/her immediate superior, can apply for "Sustainability Support", while the research group must be at least partially funded from external grant schemes. The aim is to be able to support the funding of personnel and other costs of the research group on the basis of an individual application (usually to bridge the period between individual grant schemes), for a maximum of 12 months. The outcome is the submission of a project application for funding to an external grant agency.
FM Accelerate is a support scheme designed to assess the application potential of FM MU research and development results and achieve a noticeable shift in the process of their application in practice. The aim is to increase the number and quality of research and development (R&D) results produced at FM MU for the purpose of their application in practice, to increase interaction between FM MU and the application sphere, including raising awareness of R&D activities and results of FM MU, support for applied research, experimental development, Proof of Concept projects and establishment of start-up / spin-off companies at FM MU.
The main objective of the "Junior Research Group at FM MU" programme is to create conditions for new outstanding young scientists to establish their own research group at FM MU. This form of support is therefore primarily intended for junior scientists with significant international experience. The aim is also to strengthen cooperation with foreign research institutions.
The main goal of the "FM Award" grant is to bring new outstanding and successful scientists to the FM MU and to offer them such conditions that they will be motivated to stay working for the FM MU and to produce outstanding scientific results in the long term. This form of support is therefore primarily intended for senior level foreign scientists (i.e. at least after the postdoc fellowship), and alternatively also for senior level internal researchers with significant foreign experience.
The competition serves to attract experienced productive junior researchers with significant international experience and their integrate them into already established research groups at FM MU. The aim is also to strengthen the international character of the FM MU academic environment.
