The IOCB Tech Foundation is a partner of the lecture series "Science at the Prague Castle", which features top scientists from both the Czech Republic and abroad. The series is organized by the Prague Castle Administration, the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences, and Charles University. Our foundation supported it in 2024 with a donation of CZK 800,000.

The lecture evenings usually take place on the first Wednesday of each month at 6 PM in the premises of the Supreme Burgrave's House at Prague Castle. Entry to the event is free, but prior registration is required. More information about the upcoming lectures can be found on the Prague Castle website.
