The Department of Informatics, at University of J. E. Purkinje in Usti nad Labem is the only department in the region of Ústí nad Labem which offers bachelor’s degree in applied informatics and information systems. At this moment it is possible to study at bachelor studies as well as at educational studies within the scope of various forms of lifelong learning. In addition to the pedagogical activities we are at large scale engaged in scientific and research activities, publications, we organize expert enterprises, etc. Department members take part at several projects with other Universities and international projects as well. Partnership with both small and big companies should be also mentioned. Within research activities we closely cooperate not only with significant Czech organizations such as Charles University in Prague, Academy of Sciences of CR and Institute of Chemical Technology in Prague, but with Universities in France and Germany.
