Science to inspire you.
From the time of the industrial revolution, when it became one of the country’s important engineering centres, Brno has been closely linked to many areas of advanced technology. Starting with the world famous geneticist Mendel, Brno is still recognised today as a centre of scientific innovation. It’s also an open and inclusive university city, with a creative atmosphere that supports the flowering of talent. Science is practised here at a high level, which involves integrating science workers from around the globe. Nor do we forget the importance of popularising science and whetting the curiosity of society’s youngest members. Broaden your horizons and try conducting experiments yourself.
