Palacký University in Olomouc to have new rector

Martin Procházka will become rector of Palacký University in Olomouc as of May 1. The current dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences was appointed to the position by President Miloš Zeman on Wednesday.

Procházka, whose term runed until the end of April 2025, is taking over for Jaroslav Miller, who had headed the university since 2014. Miller stepped down unexpectedly, citing his frustration with obstacles to founding the new university institute CATRIN.
