When the possibility to apply for a European social development financial subsidy for the realization of educational projects became available in 2004, VŠFS (Institute of Finance and Administration) was one of the first institutions to make use of this offer.
In the first period of the EU programme, into which the Czech Republic was taken as a member country in the years 2004-2006, VŠFS realized several unique educational programmes. One of them was for example the project called University of the Third Age, which was focused on the development of new literacies of aged people of the Most region. The project was favourably recognised not only by the successful participants in the educational courses but also by the Employment Office in Most.
Another project was focused on active, often highly educated and busy working people of higher age who are not willing to accept the passive role which some see as befitting the seniors, but are decided to enter old age as people needed by the others. The project was called Post-graduate courses of appreciation of life-long experience – the precondition for the prolongation of the horizon of voluntary productive employment in the professional markets, but it was called 'ARNOLD'. This project was extraordinarily successful as well. The result is the fact that the successful participants of this project, which call themselves 'arnolds', meet until this day and invite their instructors who they met during the project to their meetings.
In the programme period of 2004-2006 other projects were realized in VŠFS, such as 5+5 for More Valuable Study, orientated at the development of bachelor and master's study programme in the sphere of economics and international relations in English as well as Czech, or the project called Creation of Modularized Educational Programme for Internal Auditors, focused on the strengthening of personnel and professional capacities able to carry out the tasks of internal audits.
In the new EU budgetary period for the years 2007-2013 we have a number of approved projects, which we are realizing at the current time.
It is for example the project Multiplier Effect of Post-Graduate Lifelong Learning of Scientific Workers in Regional Conditions, focused on systematic increase in the innovation potential of Central Bohemian and North Bohemian scientific workers and college graduates whose activities include the preparation and realization of innovation projects or the project called EQUIP – Open Education for the Economy of Knowledge focused on the development of e-learning in VŠFS.
