What do our employees say about Brno? 

“My favourite things about Brno are the relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and how people from Brno embrace the outdoors.” 

Jaclyn Quin, country of origin Australia, postdoc

 

 

“Během své vědecké kariéry jsem žil na různých místech po celém světě: Brno, Grenoble, Londýn, Washington D.C. a Worcester. Přesto jsem vždy miloval život v Brně a jsem nesmírně šťastný, že jsem se sem konečně vrátil. Jsem vášnivý turista, takže jsem rád, že si mohu znovu užít přírodu, která Brno obklopuje." 

Gabriel Demo, country of origin Slovakia, research group leader

 

“When I came to Brno first for Erasmus exchange I felt very much like at home. That`s why I came back and I live here ever since- already 7 years! What I like the most? It's a small-big city: has a lot to offer and does not overwhelm. And the international community is really amazing.” 

Agnieszka Szmitkowska, country of origin Poland, PhD student
