Memorandum of Understanding between the Student Chamber of the Council of HEIs (SK RVŠ) and ČAD
The ČAD Board recently initiated a more pronounced collaboration with the Student Chamber of the Council of HEIs (SK RVŠ). In their program declaration (in Czech only) the Chamber aims to push the norm of treating doctoral researchers as early career researchers, not just students. Together with ČAD, the chamber supports the idea of the doctoral researchers' employment initiatives and acknowledges the urgency of their social security coverage.
The willingness to join our efforts was expressed in the Memorandum of Understanding (in Czech only), signed by the ČAD Chair, Šárka Lojdová and the President of SK RVŠ, Michal Farník. We believe that SK RVŠ and ČAD can cooperate closely to achieve our common goals. Therefore, the ČAD Chair, Šárka Lojdová and the President of SK RVŠ, Michal Farník signed the Memorandum of Understanding (in Czech only). Together we will both participate in the Eurodoc Annual General Meeting. ČAD will be represented by its Vice-chair, Patrik Švančara, while SK RVŠ has nominated the President of the Committee for Doctoral Studies of SK RVŠ, Mariana Hanková.
