The European campus: Czech Republic

by Alexandra den Heijer

Today I am writing another post from Prague, a city that accommodates more than 120.000 students (data 2013) at least 8 public universities (see map from our research The European campus).

from our European campus research: locations of public universities in Czech Republic (Tzovlas, Den Heijer 2013)

from our European campus research: locations of public universities in Czech Republic – the darker blue, the older the universities (George Tzovlas & Alexandra den Heijer 2013)

I am a guest of Charles University – our hosts are planning extensions to their Albertov campus, close to the old city centre. With more than 50.000 students this university is the largest and oldest (founded in 1348) university of Czech Republic. My presentation can be found under DOWLOADS.

The propositions I ‘defended’ during my presentation, in Czech… (for English, Dutch, French, German, Spanish and Swedish: see PROPOSITIONS)

flag Czech1. Každý cíl vysoké školy může být zmařen kampusem / infrastrukturou.

2. Kampus budoucnosti je město.

3. Inovativní a flexibilní ekonomika založená na znalostech může vnést nový život do zastaralých průmyslových historických budov.

4. Ke změně akademického pracoviště může pomoci krize – například požár.

For my previous visit to Prague in October 2012, see blog post “Bohemian academic life in Prague”. For a review of my lecture in Czech.
