At the end of March, the Council for Research, Development and Innovation approved the results of the so-called scaling of all research organizations according to the Methodology 2017+. Research organizations were divided into four groups according to the quality of their selected research and development results on a national scale. Czech Technical University in Prague was assessed in a group of technical universities and received the highest rating grade

The scaling is the result of a joint meeting of the provider's representatives, the Research, Development and Innovation Council and the Expert Panels based on the outputs of the 2019 Evaluation approved by the Council and the outputs of the evaluation at the provider level. As in 2020, these are indicative results, which are primarily intended to provide research organizations with feedback to ensure the quality of their selected results on a national scale. 

The results of the evaluation by Module 1 were presented in cumulative form for all three years of evaluation period. In the evaluation in Module 1, the expert panels work with the ratio of the number of good and bad marks of selected results, while marks 1, 2, 3 and bad marks 4 and 5 are considered good. The evaluation by Module 2 at the national level included cumulatively biblio-metric results applied in 2016–2018. 

The new approach in evaluation affects the behavior of the entire system, the number of outputs decreases and at the same time their quality increases. 

For the purposes of discussion within the tripartite, universities are grouped into seven clusters according to the branch and faculty structure and the overall professional focus. While multidisciplinary universities generally publish and present their top results in all six subject groups, technical, agricultural and veterinary as well as social science universities publish and present their top results in their subject group. Less important to marginal fields are therefore given less weight in the evaluation. For non-university and state universities, the final evaluation is derived from the predominant field and field evaluation, and for art universities, Module 2 was not considered in 2021. 

In the most numerous group of multidisciplinary universities, four universities were evaluated with the highest grade A - Excellent, namely Charles University, Masaryk University, Palacký University in Olomouc and the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice. Three schools were rated Grade B - Very Good - namely the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen, the University of Ostrava and the University of Pardubice. The rest of the multidisciplinary schools, namely the Silesian University in Opava, Tomas Bata University in Zlín, the J. E. Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem and the University of Hradec Králové, received an aggregate grade of C - Average. 

Five universities were evaluated in the group of technical universities, of which both Czech Technical University in Prague and the University of Chemical Technology in Prague received the A grade. The Brno University of Technology received the grade B and the University of Mining - The Technical University of Ostrava together with the Technical University of Liberec were graded C. 

Among life sciences and veterinary universities, the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague received a grade of B whilst the Mendel University in Brno and the Veterinary University of Brno were rated as average. 

In the group of social science universities, the rating C - Average was the highest award ever, which was received by the University of Economics in Prague and the Metropolitan University of Prague. The J. A. Comenius University in Prague and the University of Finance and Administration were rated D - below average, whereas the ŠKODA AUTO College entered the evaluation only in the third evaluation year so the below average result is not meaningful. 

Of the state universities, the University of Defense was rated as average and the Police Academy of the Czech Republic in Prague even as below average, as well as both colleges, the Jihlava University of Technology and České Budějovice University of Technology and Economics, were rated as below average.
