Important Grants and Projects

Participation in scientific and research projects supported and funded by grants is of great importance for the Faculty of Law of the CU in terms of the development of its scientific, research and even pedagogical activities.

In the academic year 2012/2013, the Faculty began to implement the following project: Master's Degree Programme in Foreign Language called "Law of European Integration and Globalization" which was co-funded by the European Union from the European Social Fund within the Operational Programme Education (hereinafter only referred to as "LEIG"). The grant is provided by the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the SR based on the agreement on provision of irrecoverable financial contribution No. 004/2012/4.2/OPV (call: OPV-2012/4.2/04-SORO). The project comprised two actions, namely (1) Transfer of innovative forms and methods into the system of legal education in a foreign language based on the needs of well-educated society and (2) Establishment of innovative foreign language education within the existing study programme “Law” in order to enhance international cooperation and mobility. 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.

Furthermore, the Faculty takes part in other grant projects supported by the Agency for Science and Research (ASR) within the General Call, namely the following ones:

  • Guidelines and tools for effective elimination of unlawful acts in relation with potential insolvency
