Success stories



"Have you ever thought about the incredible ability of organisms to adapt to the changing environment? It's fascinating to witness how different species can independently develop similar adaptations to overcome similar challenges. And that's what I'm exploring in my MSCA project: the process of repeated adaptation in nature."

Says Magdalena Bohutínská, who is currently spending two years in Bern, Switzerland, about her MSCA project.

Migration and Modernity – Historical and Cultural Challenges

MOVES is a consortium project involving Charles University together with four other prestigious European universities - Universidade do Porto, Freie Universität Berlin, Université Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3 and the University of Kent - and partners from the NGO sector and creative industries.

The MOVES project aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the social, historical and cultural roots of mass migration waves.

"An estimated billion people have emigrated from their homeland, including some 60 million migrants in Europe. The recent enormous scale of migrations has become a leading global challenge. However, today’s ‘migration crisis’ remains unsolved and is mainly seen through economic, national identity or security threats by nation-states."

Financed: Horizon 2020, Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions – European Joint Doctorate

Coordinator: Prof. Martin Procházka (FF UK)
