The international conference “10th European Forum for Science and Technology Prague” to be held on 19 May 2011 in Prague, Czech Republic, is organized by Česká hlava (Czech Brains) in cooperation with the University of Economics, Prague (VŠE). The main topic of this yearly international forum is “Science in the Changing World“. Leading scientists, industrialists, politicians and representatives of academia regularly meet in Prague. The ambition of the project is to create functional and efficient bridges between these elites which often exist too separately and communicate little among them and to offer space for the exchange of ideas and experience indirectly promoting better communication and cohesion of scientific and other research stations with the commercial sector.

Roberts (UK - Medicine), and Kurt Wüthrich (Switzerland -Chemistry) – along with other eminent persons will participate in the morning Forum programme : Core Speeches and MFDnes Journal “Nobel Prize” Forum.
