Czech and Slovak Tech

Roger Aitken, a Forbes contributor and ex-FT staff journalist, will delve into the extent of inventions.

The Czech and Slovak lands could be said to have punched above their weight when it comes to inventors and their inventions. There is even an old adage – Zlaté české ručičky a chytré české hlavičky – meaning “golden Czech hands and clever Czech heads.”

From the father of modern genetics, Johann Gregor Mendel, to the invention of the ship’s propeller (despite the nations being landlocked) and the first sugar cube sweetener back in 1843, there are more beside.

PLEASE NOTE THIS WILL NOW TAKE PLACE IN THE SLOVAK EMBASSY!
