On Monday, 29 May, experts on both topics met at the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics in Prague. An initiative of the European Association for Energy Security (EAES) based in Prague, the Centre for Energy Stability (CESTA) under the title of Synergoatom was launched at the international conference. The goal of Synergoatom is to ensure safe and sustainable operation of the European energy system, both in times of peace and in conditions of critical destabilization.
Two New National Centres to Help Streamline Internal Processes in Scientific Organisations
At the beginning of June, two new national centres were established under the auspices of the National Technical Library (NTK) based in Prague. This should make bureaucracy easier for Czech scientists and streamline processes within scientific organizations. Their operations are secured at least until 2028. The launch of both centres was announced on the occasion of the international conference National EOSC (The European Open Science Cloud) Tripartite Event in Prague. The details were reported by the Science and Research website.
