All of us who live and work in the Czech Republic should be aware of the impressive research and innovation going on in our midst. For example, scientists from České Budějovice, Brno, and Prague are engaged in promising research which could pave the way for treatments of the Zika virus. At The Institute for Nanomaterials, Advanced Technology and Innovation at
the Technical University of Liberec, researchers have developed a water filter that is "substantially more efficient than
all the existing water purification filters and it is to be usable for
at least ten years." It's cool to be surrounded by people doing important, cutting edge research.
