We’re popularising science

The City of Brno considers the innovation and development of scientific potential one of its main priorities. It financially supports or co-organizes various projects, activities, and events that help bring these topics closer to the general public. Examples include the increasingly popular Days of Electron Microscopy, Game Access, Brno Space Week, the Festival of Science, etc.

Science for everyone

Throughout the year, many events aim to raise awareness of Brno’s scientific background. Here, everyone from parents with small children to university students and professionals will find precisely what they’re looking for to have fun within the scientific community.

Days of Electron Microscopy

Days of Electron Microscopy is held annually and presents Brno as the worldwide centre of this distinguished field.

Festival of Science

Science, technology, and history are demonstrated by two dozen institutions that, despite being scientific and technological, don’t take themselves too seriously.

This event aims to popularise science and technology. It’s been held every year since 2005 by the initiative of the European Commission.
