We bring together the worlds of science and business
The Neuron Endowment Fund draws upon the tradition of architect Josef Hlávka, who believed that pioneering science is a critical driving force in every successful society. We greatly value the support of our patrons, thanks to whom we can support leading Czech scientists and so push back the frontiers of human knowledge. We are creating a very compelling community of successful entrepreneurs and leading scientists in this country.
