The ics strategic plan is based on the Masaryk University Strategic Plan, and in several areas, implicitly takes over the goals and priorities without their explicit mention in this document. In contrast to the mu Strategic Plan, the ics’s Strategic Plan is significantly more specific and comprehensive at the level of the strategic objectives; on the contrary, the measures are usually shorter.
The Institute thus reflects the situation in the field of information technologies and their deployment, when it is necessary to count on the rapid change of specific technologies and the way they are deployed; therefore, it usually does not make sense for long-term plans to go into too specific (technological) measures, as these will undoubtedly change.
Therefore, despite the still relatively high degree of abstraction used, it is necessary to consider that significant changes will occur, especially in it professional background, and the ics Strategic Plan will need to be modified accordingly.
On the other hand, the ics Strategic Plan (in the context of the mu Strategic Plan) is a clear plan of further development of ics mu with the target of maintaining and further strengthening its role as a top workplace, providing expert professional IT background to the university and gradually create an internationally visible and recognized workplace in strategic areas of research and development, explicitly described in this document. At the same time, ICS wants to hold the role of a key partner in cybersecurity, building EOSC and Open Science environment within the Czech Republic and the EU.
