The venue is a bit similar to Stockholm Hagastaden we visited last March. Dolni Brezany just next to Prague is rapidly developing area – that is why also the mayor of Dolni B?ežany Mr. Vnislav Michalík is looking forward to meet journalists in the city hall there and give them wide information about the advantages of research infrastructure.
The detailed programme will be sent out later.
