The official celebration for The Czech National CEEPUS Office Prize 2012 took place at Brno University of Technology on May 21, 2013. The event was part of an information campaign at the CEEPUS National Meeting organized by the Centre for International Services (Dům zahraničních služeb – DZS) in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic.

For 2012, two international university networks were awarded. The University of Economics, Prague (VŠE) is a partner of the Amadeus University network that is coordinated by Vienna University of Economics and Business. In total, 13 universities from 11 countries in Central and Eastern Europe take part in the network.

The awarded universities’ representatives were presented the award certificates by Ms. Michaela Kleňková, Director of Policy Coordination and International Affairs Department, and Ms. Elisabeth Sorantin from Austria.

The CEEPUS program is a Central European university exchange project focusing on regional cooperation within the university networks. The University of Economics, Prague has been part of it since 1996. In addition to exchanges between teachers and students, the Amadeus Project enables partner universities to also participate in a two-semester program called the JOSZEF Project (Junge Ost- und mitteleuropäische Studenten als Zukünftige Erfolgreiche Führungskräfte/Young East and Central European Students as Future Successful Managers) at Vienna University of Economics and Business. The program is focused on the fields of business and management; part of the program involves an internship at an Austrian company focused on in Central and Eastern Europe.
