Student research and development projects
The Faculty of Informatics seeks to stimulate the development of high-quality, generic and free software by supporting the student research and development projects. The program aims to contribute to development Free Software and at the same time to highlight the creative potential and professional skills of faculty students in both national and international contexts.
Students' projects are implemented mostly by students of bachelor's and / or master's studies under the supervision of a faculty employee, who is the expert guarantor responsible for the project's solution, its coordination, handling of financial resources and public presentation of the achieved results. A doctoral student can also lead the project. In the event that they are not employees of the Faculty of Informatics at the same time, one of the employees, such as the supervisor of the doctoral student, must take the formal responsibility for the project.
The objectives of the project may or may not be scientific work and may or may not be implemented within any of the existing faculty laboratories. Allocated funds can be used for regular monthly remuneration to students, or to cover additional costs necessary for the realization of project objectives. Funds may always be requested for a maximum of one year. Long-term projects can be supported repeatedly if their objectives are properly met.
Institutional support is intended for the further development of projects that already show some results (for example, the development version of the program is available) and their web presentation. Institutional support cannot be obtained solely on the basis of a project intention, which is not further supported by at least partial results.
Project design and solution
The project proposal can be submitted based on the current call. It is necessary to fill in the appropriate form, have it signed by the guarantor and deliver it to the Research, Development and Doctoral Studies Department of the Faculty of Informatics before the relevant time limit expires. It is also necessary to enter the project proposal into ISEP (project proposal editor) and insert the signed proposal (pdf file) into the documents tab. It is recommended to consult the project with the employees in advance Department of Research, Development and Doctoral Studies Faculty of Informatics.
In case of project financing the guarantor will be informed by email, the proposal will be transferred to the implemented projects in ISEP and the project will be awarded a contract. At this point, it is possible to start the project and apply for a scholarship.
In the course of the project solution at 3-month intervals, the solver puts a short interim report on the project solution into the ISEP (implemented projects).
Upon completion of the project, it is necessary to prepare the final report on the appropriate form and deliver it to the Department of Research, Development and Doctoral Studies of the Faculty of Informatics and sign it (in pdf) to ISEP. Subsequently, the researcher presents and defends the solution of the project for public presentation and defense, which takes place twice a year at FI.

Common design errors
Based on our previous suggestions, we recommend that you avoid the following errors, which are likely to lead to the project being discarded:
- The vague specification of the project objectives. It is not enough to set framework goals (eg "software development for working with pdf files for Linux"), it is necessary to describe the specific outputs and / or functionality of the program to be achieved (together with the relevant timetable). It must be clear from the project proposal what is actually to be carried out in each stage and subsequently checked. It must also be clear what is the current status (eg the current functionality of the program) and how much work will be done within the project.
- Insufficient justification for financial costs. The main item in the project costs is usually scholarships for members of the research team. It is necessary to clearly state how the individual team members will participate in the project and what the expected volume of their work is. The members of the selection board must assess whether the required funds are proportionate to the expected benefit of the project. Travel expenses can only be requested in very exceptional and well-justified cases (in particular, student projects are not intended to finance student participation in scientific conferences, other sources should be used for this purpose).
- Formal errors. The project proposal must be submitted on the appropriate form and must contain all the required data. There is a need to consistently distinguish between the description of the current status and the description of the project objectives (if a project is to create a new plugin for an existing program, it is not enough to say that the existing program is being distributed under a free license. newly created plugin). Members of the Commission cannot infer the missing data from the context, the only basis for their decision is explicitly stated facts.
