It is worth saying that Kazan University has already been cooperating with higher education institutions of Czech Republic in the framework of several international projects. Thus, it is collaborating with Masarykov University of Brno in the framework of Erasmus Mundus Triple network mobility program. Scientists representing the Institute of Mathematics and Mechanics of KFU and Charles University participate in a scientific research work performed within the framework of the international project for the theory of calculability and constructive algebraic structures (the project is being implemented with the financial support of the National Scientific Fund - NSF – higher education institutions from the USA, Canada, Singapore, Bulgaria, Belgium, New Zealand and Kazakhstan participate in it, as well).
