About us

chinet_logo_pruhledneOur project “Forging a scientific team and international networking in the field of Chinese Studies” in short “CHINET,” is financed by the European Social Fund and the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, Czech Republic, under the reg. nr. CZ.1.07/2.3.00/20.0152. The whole project is administered and coordinated by the Department of Asian Studies at Palacký University Olomouc, Czech Republic.

CHINET focuses on establishing a large interdisciplinary research team in the area of Chinese Studies in the Czech Republic.

Our team focuses on eight key domains of academic research, each of them supervised by experienced scholar.

Our research areas include:

Each of our research groups focuses on specific topic, which reflects current global trends in the field of Chinese Studies. Each group is supervised by chief editor, who is in charge of submissions’ quality and their academic relevance. The main endeavor of CHINET is not only to facilitate complex developments in Chinese Studies in the Czech Republic, but also to enable participation in research activities in this field on Pan-European and global level. Our project facilitates academic exchanges not only for experienced scholars, but also students at the beginning of their academic careers. Study visits and participation at international conferences and workshops, which our project also supports, enables participants to broaden their knowledge and to make important contacts in their field of interest within the area of Chinese Studies.
