Mr. Zdeněk Kůs
Future Forces Forum
Rector of the Technical University of Liberec
Technical University in Liberec
"In the last five years we have completed large European-funded projects for building research facilities and modernising our campus. The process has brought about a positive change in the overall atmosphere in the academic community and further improvement of the conditions for work and studies. Our research teams and students participate in more and more projects in cooperation with partners from the world of business and technology and with our international partners too. The Technical University of Liberec provides fair access to education to all would-be students. Due to mobility opportunities and the development of critical employability skills, most of our graduates find jobs easily. These trends contribute to team learning, shared vision and a radical rethinking of the core functions of the university. I extend a big thank you to all members of our academic community who made the rapid growth and development happen."
