The Faculty of Science (FoS) of the Charles University in Prague presented its new communication concept called SCIENTISTS in early November last year. The objective of this concept is to approach elementary and secondary school students & teachers, media, education industry experts, as well as the general public.
The Team mission is to shape a new breed of engineers leader in their relative fields and to represent the educational excellence of our university.
