Dear Students, Dear Colleagues,
I am glad that I am preparing this year's Christmas wish at the end of the winter semester, in which we were able to teach primarily in person. This meant that the usual and enjoyable activity lasted throughout the semester in the classrooms, lecture halls, laboratories, workshops, and campus. It is an integral part of the university that we missed.
On 7th December 2021, the Ambassador of the Republic of India, Mr. Hemant Harishchandra Kotalwar, visited our university. Over 300 students from India who are currently studying at CZU were the main reason for his stay with us. Therefore, he met some of them.
A CZUInternational Advisory Board meeting took place on Tuesday, 7th December.
As of Monday 15th November 2021, the conditions under which education can take place at universities are changing. In addition to all common areas, the obligation to wear respirators also applies to education if more than 50 persons are present together. Given the dire epidemic situation, we all must comply with these conditions. In this way, we can work together to ensure that education in the hybrid model can continue.
Nothing changes for the teaching methods, and teaching will continue to occur under the conditions set at the individual faculties. Also, the conditions that students must meet remain the same. Thus, students do not have to prove the absence of infection to participate in education and examinations.

The debates with important guests will complement captivating documents. The contest of scientific documents is organized by the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague (CZU) and Palacký University Olomouc (UPOL).
The current Rector of CZU Prague, Professor Petr Sklenička, will continue to manage the university for the next four years. At its meeting on Friday, 8th October 2021, the university's Academic Senate elected Prof. Sklenička of two candidates in the first round of elections.
I welcome you all to the beginning of the new academic year at the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague. I am pleased that we can meet again in person during classes and share our beautiful academic space after a long time.

And the third-best CZU athlete is speed canoeist Josef Dostál, a three-time world champion in the kayakers category.

Unfortunately, not all the awarded athletes were able to attend the meeting due to the preparation for the Summer Olympic Games and other top world sports competitions.
