Up till very recently the website of the Engineering Academy of the Czech Republic was available only in Czech. However the Executive Committee of the EACR decided to create an English version of the website with latest news and information which could be of interest to foreign website visitors. Simultaneously a new WebEditor was appointed.
Should you suggest any improvements and/or have requests which could contribute to a greater effectiveness of the website we would be glad to consider them and if feasible to implement them.
