Tomas Bata University in Zlín



We love to prove that life at our faculty is not boring at all !

Over the years we have participated in several projects and organized so many different types of events. It is not just about learning and research – Science is not a tedious subject and scientists are not naive nerds. 

From our classic events like Open House, we organise all sorts of conferences, anniversary festivities and jubilees. We have ongoing regular lectures hosted by Science Café Zlín, our annual events such as Science Night, Science on Demand or our Mystery Lab during the Zlin Film Festival. What we can not forget to mention is the Academic Slivovitz Tasting.

Challenging stereotypes and breaking down barriers? That is our thing!


Science and experiments have the leading role! The largest and most eagerly anticipated events of its kind in our region, also part of European Researchers’ Night. We aim to promote and popularize Science. Visitors get a change to scrutinize our labs and try out various experiments on their own. There is always something new to learn. Let’s spark a desire to indulge in the natural sciences, and especially to have a good time while doing it. We make sure everything runs smoothly.
