Fyziklani International 2021
Based on the feedback of the participants of Fyziklani during the last years, we decided to extend the activities around the Fyziklani competition. We applied and were approved for the Erasmus+ Programme – Key Action 1 – Youth Exchanges.
July 2020: The project has been approved! Fyziklani Internationnal will take place (unless a pandemic strikes again).
6th May 2020: We have submitted the project and are waiting for its (dis)approval.
13th Apr 2020: Currently, we are finishing the planned programme, working on the project text and searching for partners. We have already contacted several institutions and foreign teams that participated during the last years of the Fyziklani. However, if you are interested, you can contact us at this moment.
The full name of the project is Fyziklani International 2021 – Let's Discover European Physics. For easier administration, we are going to apply as an informal group of FYKOS organisers. However, we will cooperate with the Charles University to coordinate this project and the Fyziklani competition.
The main goals of this project are
- To extend the stay in Prague for groups (team + team leader) selected by partners of this project to 5 days.
- To have the possibility to know each other better and create a social network of young people interested in Physics.
- To share elementary information about the general culture of the participating countries.
- To improve knowledge of the scientists (especially physicists) of participating countries, scientific workplaces in Prague and neighbourhood
- To enhance understanding of the contributions of the European Union to the science and EU in general.
The planned term of the youth exchange is from 9th Feb until 15th Feb 2021 in Prague1)
