The actors are one university institute (faculty level), one institute of the Academy of Science of the Czech Republic and one civil association working in synergy and utilising the best possibilities within their infrastructure and legal status. Data for content of the project will be provided also by partners involved in European research arena. International impact will be achived through collab orating institutions in USA (i.e. Princeton University), Canada and Eastern Europe.
