REASONS FOR MEETING OF ENGINEERS IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC
The Prague Polytechnic, today called the Czech Technical University in Prague, one of the oldest engineering schools in the world, was founded in Prague in 1707.
The Society of Architects and Engineers in the Kingdom of Bohemia, one of the oldest engineering societies in Europe, was founded in 1865. The successor to the Society is the host of the Convention – the Czech Association of Scientific and Technical societies, incorporated club.

The Czech Republic, one of the most industrial of Europe's countries, that has an industrial production index of 32% gross domestic product, offers a lot of unique projects to gain knowledge, for example the Laser Research Centre equipped with the most powerful pulsed laser in the world, pumped storage hydroplant ‒ the third most efficient hydroplant in the world and many other unique academic, industrial and research institutions in the areas of mobility, cybernetics, robotics and artificial intelligence.
We look forward to a broader participation of engineers, researchers, scientists and technicians from all over the world.
