Unipetrol once again general partner of Innovation Week

Unipetrol opět generálním partnerem Týdne inovací

Despite unusual circumstances, Innovation Week Czech Republic kicked off in style at Prague’s Forum Karlín again this year. As in previous years, Unipetrol was the general partner of the country’s largest event concerning innovations. We prepared a rich program for event guests, ranging from a panel discussion led by Unipetrol brand ambassador Michael Londesborough, an art production or an educational workshop about hydrogen to a compelling “Let’s talk about it” roundtable discussion. We’d like to share the most interesting moments with you through these captured images. Let’s look back together at another successful year.
