Donate Blood with the Rector!

18. February 2019 - 24. February 2019

An event to support free blood donations.  Part of the UP Academic Week programme.

During Academic Week (18–24th February 2019), another round of the event “Donate Blood with the Rector: Blue is Good!” will take place. We call on all students and employees of Palacký University to join us in the week 18th to 22nd February to donate their most precious possession – blood. Every student or employee will also receive a small gift package from UPoint and the University Hospital Olomouc upon showing their ISIC or UP employee card.

Why should you donate blood?

Because volunteering to donate your blood or blood plasma is a priceless feeling, and because we believe that university students and employees should lead. During the last five years, more than 4000 members of the academic community have donated blood thanks to our initiative.

Who can donate blood?

All information on whether you are an eligible donor can be found here. Please read all the conditions before going to the University Hospital so that your visit will not be in vain. It happens every year to dozens of donors. If you are not certain you meet the conditions, please do not be afraid to write to us!
The event is co-organised with the Transfusion Department of the University Hospital Olomouc and the initiative called 470 ml (Pint of Blood).
If you are interested in donating blood, please apply via e-mail: Put the slogan DARUJ (DONATE) in the subject of the e-mail. The mail then should include your name, date of birth, the faculty you represent, and whether you’re a student or employee.
