ABOUT THE NEURON ENDOWMENT FUND
The main mission of the Neuron Endowment Fund is to increase the prestige of scientists, to develop modern patronage in science and to connect the world of science and business. We are an independent platform funded solely by the private contributions of patrons who donate a personal bonus to the winners of the Neuron Prizes.
Our other projects include the Neuron Expedition as a support for field scientific research or the Neuron Club, a regular meeting of science and business personalities; for the public, we organize the Neuron Online Club on current topics. We regularly support student and academic projects, organize educational programs and acquaint the public with the achievements of Czech scientists.
