At the beginning of December 2018, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering obtained a prestigious HR Excellence in Research Award, which it sought within the UWB project HR Award, after a year of hard work. This award is awarded by the European Commission and confirms the right setting in the area of strategy and human resources management. The faculty also undertakes to implement the proposed Action plan for two years to keep this prestigious award. The actions proposed in the Action Plan concern the improvement of working conditions, the recruitment and selection of researchers, and, last but not least, the personal and career development of employees.
An interim self-assessment of the current implementation of the action plan took place in the autumn 2020, in February 2021 was award confirmed by European Commission.
Benefits for the faculty:
- Implementation and validation / mastering of all HR processes
- Bonuses for evaluating new projects

Implementation of the Charter and the Code at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering is within the framework of the HR Award university project, registration number: CZ.02.2.69/0.0/0.0/16_028/0006188.
In March 2022, the University of West Bohemia sent the Endorsement letter to the EU Commission, in which we committed to introducing HR Excellence in Research throughout the University.
Equal Opportunity Policy
"The Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the University of West Bohemia is committed to open and equal access to education and creative activity with the aim of eliminating cultural, social, and other barriers that prevent certain groups from increasing their educational attainment, even though they have good study prerequisites, or from joining faculty research teams, even though they have the necessary prerequisites for creative activity."
(Strategic Plan of FEE 2021 – 2025)
The main values that the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of UWB professes and supports include freedom, democracy, ethics, courage and responsibility, openness, individual and equal access, justice, professionalism, and expertise. The role of an equitable and inclusive environment is reflected in the quality and impact of the research and development results achieved, which, among other things, reflect the needs of society as a whole. The quality of results is also influenced by an open working environment and diversified work teams that allow for the development of talent from both staff and students. The Faculty is committed to the significant involvement of students in all its professional activities, thus opening up opportunities not only for their employment and the development of their human potential.
The Faculty has been working systematically on the policy of equal access, the so-called EDI (Equality, Diversity, Inclusion) policy, and its implementation for a long time. One of the important outcomes of this work is the Gender Equality Plan.
The Faculty has significantly contributed to the development of the Gender Equality Plan of the University of West Bohemia and subscribes to its content. It considers the gradual implementation of individual areas to be its priority interest and therefore presents at the end of this document specific steps by which it implements the University-wide plan and, at the same time, proportionally adapts it to its specific conditions.
