26 November, 2021

CERGE-EI celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Tomáš Zima, Rector of Charles University in Prague, wishes CERGE another successful 30 years of many prestigious projects and success in educating experts in economics.

"Dear ladies and gentlemen, dear colleagues,

We are commemorating 30 years since the founding of CERGE, the Center for Economic Research and Graduate Education. A joint workplace of Charles University and the Czech Academy of Sciences emerged 30 years ago to assist the development of science and research in economics. To this day, world economics experts continue to support students in gaining excellent knowledge in the field.

Globally, CERGE ranks among the top institutions in economics research and education. Its activities within the University and the Academy of Sciences, both in Czech and in an international context, have led to the emergence of many important papers and, most importantly, of more than 600 economic specialists who are working around the world today. The Center's master and PhD programs rank among the most prestigious and are available to students from all around the world.

I would like to express my thanks to all current and past CERGE workers for their excellent research and for passing on their knowledge to many of the top economists of the future, who will continue to spread the good name of our university worldwide. I would like to wish CERGE another successful 30 years of many prestigious projects and success in continuing to produce excellent experts in economics.

Thank you."
