Brno is the second largest town in the Czech Republic with over 400,000 inhabitants and the capital of the South Moravian Region.

The city of Brno has a long-year tradition in science and technology; it is connected to prominent scientists and thinkers such as Johann Gregor Mendel, an Augustinian friar and the founder of modern genetics, who conducted his pea plant experiments here.  For a few decades, Brno has been a place of research institutes and companies involved in development and production of electron microscopes.  At present, it hosts companies such as Thermo Fisher Scientific (FEI), TESCAN, and Delong Instruments, all of them engaged in the business of electron microscopy and relevant nanotechnology tools and methods.  Brno is also known as a student town hosting more than 80,000 students of 13 universities.
