Recognising Excellence in Slovak Science

The ESET Science Award recognises exceptional individuals of Slovak science.

We are convinced that science deserves an important place in our society. We wish to recognise individuals of Slovak science not only through their internationally acclaimed scientific results or breakthrough inventions, but also as role models for us all. We believe that high-quality science helps our country develop and moves it forward.

The ESET Science Award has been granted by the ESET Foundation annually since 2019.
