This project was successfully completed in the 2015/2016 academic year. 

In December 2013, Comenius University in Bratislava started to implement the following project: University Scientific Park of Comenius University in Bratislava within the Operational Programme Research and Development (call: OPVaV-2012/4.2/08-RO) which is co-funded from the European Regional Development Fund and the state budget of the Slovak Republic where its contributor is the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the SR. The Faculty of Law of the Comenius University in Bratislava by itself takes patronage over the activity 2.8 Societal Challenges for the 21st Century – Legal Challenges. The basis of this activity lies in the fact that the society and possibilities of its further development currently face rather complex challenges. Therefore, the research conducted into the area of social and human sciences, its results and their practical applicability is of greater importance for the society.
