Festival of Exact Sciences – Professor Antoni Hoborski Days


On 14-16 November 2018, the AGH University of Science and Technology will hold the Festival of Exact Sciences – Professor Antoni Hoborski Days. Since 2017, the festival has been a statutory university event, whose aim is the dissemination and popularisation of the need to develop exact sciences and the awareness of their adequate teaching.  

The Festival of Exact Sciences – Professor Antoni Hoborski Days for the first time was celebrated in November 2014. The idea behind the first edition of the event was drawing attention to the problems related to teaching fundamental sciences, as well as portraying professor Antoni Maria Emilian Hoborski – an outstanding Polish mathematician, the first rector of the Mining Academy and the Dean of the Mining Faculty.
