By supporting science we’re changing our future.

About Neuron

At Neuron we believe that science drives our development and that the work of Czech scientists can improve the quality of life for all. By supporting science and research, we take our share of responsibility for shaping our future.

We don’t receive any form of state funding. Our work is funded by private benefactors – successful people who work with Neuron to support talented Czech scientists.

Our independent science board includes top experts for each field we support.
