Doppler Institute is a platform for collaboration of a large group of like-minded people working in various parts of mathematical physics and applied mathematics. On a formal level, it is a common enterprise of three academic institutions, the Faculty of Nuclear Physics and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague, the
Department of Theoretical Physics, Nuclear Physics Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences, and the Faculty of Science of the University of Hradec Kralové. Its mission, which stems from a longtime, often informal collaboration of some participants is to foster excellent research in the field, to cultivate links between different research topics, and to raise new generations which could lead in the future.
The funding of this activities kept changing over the time. In the period 2006-11 the institute enjoyed the status of a "Centers of Basic Research" supported by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic under the code number LC06002. The collaboration dates many years back, however, in some cases more than four decades, being concentrated around a mathematical-physics seminar and common research interests. In 1993 the original Doppler Institute was established as a platform to develop this collaboration further. Many results were achieved since then as the publications as well as meetings, supervised PhD theses and other activities summarized in the annual reports witness. For most part of its history, a support of the Doppler Institute activities was secured on an ad hoc basis. Since 2018, it became a part of the "Center of Advanced Applied Sciences" supported by the European Union within the Project CZ.02.1.01/0.0/0.0/16 019/0000778.
