SCHOLA EMPIRICA is an independent, non-governmental, non-political organization that has operated since 2003.

SCHOLA EMPIRICA (till January 2014 Center for Public Policy; http://www.mvcr.cz/rady/sdruzeni/ sdruz010.html) is an independent, non-governmental, non-political organization that has operated since 2003.

Through various educational and training projects we aim to increase the quality of Czech public policy and improve social climate and civil coexistence.

SCHOLA EMPIRICA promotes an independent platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences between local and international experts in different fields of applied social sciences. The organization is active in research on current social issues and definitions, as well as the transfer of best practices in policy design and implementation.

Prague Summer Schools (PSS) aim to contribute to the international dialog on important social and economic issues through convening a large group of international students in Prague to spend one week in a challenging and intensive educational environment.

My experience with SCHOLA EMPIRICA is absolutely excellent. I was afraid, but there was no reason for that – I made databases, searched contacts, communicated with summer school students, read the papers, provided my opinion, and the little office work was not even boring due to everything I did. Never in my life did I learn as much as during the month in EMPIRICA SCHOLARSHIP.”


Simon Vydra, Amsterdam University College

“The EMPIRICA SCHOLARSHIP gave me a great opportunity to use my skills and skills to learn in practice. I was part of the Prague Summer Schools project, where I helped with the leadership and organization of students during their leisure activities. My great memory is thanks to a guided tour of Prague with the homeless (Pragulic), which gave me a completely different view of this metropolis. All the experience and friendship gained with students from different cultures and countries helped me to broaden my horizons and teamwork skills. I am very pleased with this opportunity and I know that the moments I have experienced in EMPIRICA SCHOOL will be remembered for the rest of my life.”


Karolina Povilaityte, Vytautas Magnus University

“Thanks to SCHOLA EMPIRICA, I could travel, gain experience, see the country with tradition and cultural habits in which children are educated. I have not only gained experience but also a lot of energy and ideas for the coming days. I am happy to be able to bring everything into practice and to contribute to the education of healthy self-confident children.”
