In April 2022, an important milestone was reached regarding completion of the new Campus of the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Pharmacy of CU in Hradec Králové, as on April 13 the last building permit for its completion came into force.
The project thus took a significant step towards its implementation. MEPHARED 2 follows up on the first Campus building (MEPHARED 1), completed in 2015, and located favourably at the intersection of the region´s Medical Rescue Service and the access road to the HK University Hospital.
The Central Building and the Faculty Buildings, which will be part of the Charles University Campus in Hradec Králové, will be newly built.
The central building of the Campus will be built with the financial support of the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports. The construction of the Faculty Building will be financed from the National Recovery Plan. We currently assume that a particular public contract for the construction contractor will be announced in summer. If all goes well, construction will begin in early 2023 and the campus construction is expected to be completed in 2026.
The implementation of this construction will bring a total of 18,550 m2 of new teaching and research space. This will create an unique educational and research center integrating teaching, research and development in the medical and pharmaceutical fields with a direct connection to clinical practice in the immediately adjacent University Hospital and the Faculty of Military Medicine of the University of Defense.
The completion of the Campus will create a modern environment with suitable conditions for the development of medical disciplines and thus enable the quality education of new top experts, especially doctors, pharmacists and experts in laboratory diagnostics.
At the same time, campus will offer a suitable environment for deepening the knowledge of health professionals within their lifelong learning so that they can respond to the current needs and challenges facing health care in the post-covid period, and thus significantly contribute to improving health care delivery in the Czech Republic.
The project will support not only the number but also the quality of science and research specialists in fields of medicine, pharmacy and other biomedical sciences, which will significantly strengthen the position of Charles University and its faculties in Hradec Králové and will provide additional impulse for the strategic development of the Hradec Králové region.
