The Czech Brains (“ČESKÁ HLAVA”) Award

The Czech Brains Award is the highest Czech award in science. Launched in 2002, originally by a private initiative supporting scientific and technical brainpower in the Czech Republic, the project was later joined by state organizations as well. Today, the Czech Brains Award thus probably represents the highest honour that could be achieved by Czech scientists. The main goal of the project is to popularize science and technology along with increasing the general prestige of these areas.

This year, beside Egyptologist Miroslav Bárta, the Award was also received by three scientists and one company. The Invention Award was granted to evolutionary biologist Jan Brábek for a novel type of anticancer agents preventing tumours to metastasize in the body.
