Eduard Čech Center for Algebra and Geometry

The Charles University in Prague, the Masaryk University in Brno and the Mathematical Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic have jointly initiated a new centre supporting the development and exchange of ideas throughout the Czech and foreign universities and institutes, and providing a meeting place for leading experts in areas of Mathematics which combine geometrical and algebraic approaches. This project has been launched within the scheme "Centers of Excellence in Basic Research", the Contracting Authority is the Czech Ministry for Youth, Education and Sport.

Eduard Cech has been chosen in the name of the Centre because it was just him who combined geometrical and algebraic thinking in his work and contributed amazingly to the evolution of all three institutions involved in the project at the same time.
