The University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice (JU) ranks among research-oriented universities. Research at JU is mainly focused on natural sciences, social sciences and humanities. An important aspect of the University's scientific research activities is close cooperation with institutes of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. Since 2019, the university has been the recipient of the HR Excellence in Research Award, a prestigious award obliging research institutions to create friendly working conditions, professional development and transparent procedures for hiring researchers. In terms of disciplinary profile, the university achieves excellent, internationally competitive results, particularly in the natural sciences (biology, earth sciences, chemistry, other natural sciences), as well as in agriculture, forestry and fisheries. Despite a lower degree of orientation towards medical disciplines, the results of research activities in this area are also very good in national comparison. There has also been increasing success in developing results in technical disciplines linked to the natural sciences (e.g. materials and environmental engineering).
