September 15th is the deadline for sending in nominations for the "Czech Head" award for outstanding Czech researchers and inventors.
The prize was launched in 2002 by a team of scientists and marketing experts in order to support and promote Czech science among the public as an "attractive brand". Last year, eighty scientists and projects were nominated for the award in a number of categories, including those for university and high school students. The main prize, the "Czech Head for Lifelong Work" went to physicist and chemist Zdenek Herman, the head of the research team at the Jaroslav Heyrovsky Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences. This year's award ceremony will take place on November 25th and the winner will receive over 1 million crowns (33,000 euros).
