Filip Matějka Named Charles University Professor

30 June, 2023

Congratulations to Filip Matějka on being named Professor at Charles University! On 21 June 2023, President of the Czech Republic Petr Pavel handed over appointment decrees to 87 new professors present in the Grand Hall of Charles University.

A total of 91 professors were appointed effective 18 May 2023 and two professors effective 6 June 2023. Thirty of the newly appointed professors come from Charles University. With his presence, the President has renewed the tradition whereby, as the highest constitutional official, he not only appoints new professors on the proposal of the scientific and artistic councils of universities, but also attends the handover ceremony in person. One of them is CERGE-EI's Associate Professor with Tenure Filip Matějka, professor in the field of economic theory.
