I approach my scientific work with humility and try to find my own original way to achieve my goals as consciously as possible. However, science is teamwork, so I respectfully listen to those who are more experienced,” Plichta said.
The prize was also awarded to two employees of the MENDELU Counseling and Career Center, Zdeňka Hort and Barbora Šímová, who provided psychological support to students during the COVID-19 pandemic. “We are not happy with the increasing number of people in need of psychological or other care, not only at university, but the fact that the number of our clients is increasing and has multiplied by many during the pandemic means that they know us and turn to us with confidence. And that makes us both happy and engaged,” said Hort and Šímová, adding that the award belongs to the entire counseling center, whose care for students and staff continues.
According to František Bauer, who was honored by the rector for his long-term creative achievements, scientific work requires constant attention. “Besides health and personal values, the only real asset a person has is knowledge, and that’s not just why we try to involve younger colleagues and, of course, students in our research. . Because teaching associated with scientific activity is a unique process and the student is an unforgettable part of it,” Bauer said.
