The event will be held on Tuesday, June 2, from 2 p.m.  to 5 p.m. at the CERGE-EI building (Politických vězňů 7, Prague 1).
Switzerland is a world leader in science and innovation. Cooperation between the public and private sectors in research works well. This success is a result of innovation system reforms that are being continuously cultivated for years. The Czech Republic stands in setting and cultivating innovation system on another crossroad. Decisions that have to be made after a long time will have a major impact on the direction in which the Czech Republic moves on. The inspiration and lessons learned from a successful country are therefore in place.
