Václav Cílek

We have the pleasure to announce that Václav Cílek, our colleague and the former Director of the Institute of Geology, was awarded the Prize of the Chairman of the Research, Development and Innovation Council (R&D&I Council). This award, granted for outstanding activities in popular science promotion, was presented – on behalf of the Chairman – by Karel Havlíček, the Deputy Prime Minister, the Vice-Chairman of the R&D&I Council, the Minister of Industry and the Minister of Transport. This event was held within a festive, though modest, ceremony in the Hrzán Palace on October 13, 2020, at the presence of the President of the Czech Academy of Sciences Eva Zažímalová. Many congratulations, Václav! For details on the award, click here.
