    The Czech Association of Scienti c and Technical Societies (ČSVTS) held celebrations to mark the 25th anniversary of the founding of its organization in May 2015. The celebrations were divided in two parts, namely technical and ceremonial ones. The technical part in the framework of the Conference took place in the headquarters of the ČSVTS in Novotného lávka 5 in Prague 1 on May 18th 2015. The Conference was called "Science and Technology in the Czech Republic", the motto "The Perspectives of Technics and Technologies by the Year 2030". The ČSVTS and its societies nowadays gather a considerable intellectual potential representing mainly associated engineers, technicians and other experts who with a speci c orientation contribute to performing the tasks which are confronted with our society, European and global societies. These challenges cannot be solved without improving the use of the results of science for innovation of technics and technologies, and without their putting into practice using new engineering methods. Individual presen- tations have indicated views on these problems, starting from their scienti c solution, followed by innovations and putting into practice.
On May 28th 2015, the celebration meeting under the auspices of the President of the Czech Republic Miloš Zeman
was held on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the founding of the current ČSVTS and at the same time in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Czech Association of Engineers and Architects, the  rst association of engineers and architects in the territory of the Czech Republic. Among the participants were present ministers of the Government of the Czech Republic, deputies of the Parliament of the Czech Republic, President of the Czech Academy of Sciences, President of the Confederation of Industry of the Czech Republic, President of WFEO and President of FEANI, and other representatives of interna- tional engineering associations (VDI, CAST, ZSVTS, FSNOT, Kuwait Society of Engineers) and a great number of other distinguished persons. After speeches of Czech guests, the highest awards were conferred on distinguished persons by the Czech Association of Scienti c and Technical Societies. Guests were also offered to examine selected technical projects and presentations of students.
