Knowledge

Pushing the boundaries of human knowledge. The effort to improve one’s own intellectual abilities. Or the simple joy of learning. These are all goals of the RSJ Foundation area of education, science and research.

We strive to achieve them through an orientation in two key directions:

  • The increase of the prestige of science, highlighting its importance.

  • Support of mathematics, informatics and logic through educational institutions and other organizations.

We must create a nurturing environment for talented, hard-working and motivated young people, corresponding to their educational needs as well as current trends. Their diligence and effort must be rewarded, as well as the work of meritorious scientists. Education in its widest sense is the key to a meaningful future.

 

We particularly intend to contribute to:

  • Improving the accessibility of science to the general public in the Czech Republic through its popularization.

  • Creating a motivating environment for pupils and students, as well as pedagogs.

  • Collaborations between educational and scientific institutions with the business sphere.
