Week of Science and Technology in Slovakia

4minút, 23sekúnd

The twentieth annual Week of Science and Technology in Slovakia will take place from 6 to 12 November 2023. The event is organized annually by the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic (MŠVVaŠ SR), in cooperation with the Centre of Scientific and Technical Information of the Slovak Republic (SCSTI SR) and the National Centre for the Popularization of Science and Technology in Society (NCP VaT).

The aim of the Week of Science and Technology in Slovakia is to popularize science and technology, inform the public about current knowledge and the potential of Slovak science, arouse young people’s interest in studying scientific and technical courses and support science and technology, which are the basis of economic and social progress and the basis for solving global problems and challenges.
The Slovak Republic has a strong scientific potential, which it must use in order for it to become our competitive advantage. It is important for the general public to perceive lifelong learning, research, development and innovation as positive factors for development, as processes that move our knowledge and the development of society further. That is why during this week, teachers, technicians and scientists from all over Slovakia will present their work and the results of their research to the general public in an interesting and simple way.
