Operation Anthropoid Project

Operation Anthropoid is a story of assassination of "3rd most dangerous man in the Third Reich" Reinhard Heydrich by Czechoslovak SOE parachutists trained by British SOE in the United Kingdom. It was a hit-and-run operation, except there was nowhere to run. Moreover, it was a story or unprecedented heroism and bravery. Operation Anthropoid remains one of the Prague's most intriguing and thrilling stories and constitutes an enormous tourism potential for the Czech capital. Watch the video that tells about the project (in Czech).


Dr. Wadim Strielkowski is a Czech economist and multidisciplinary scientist from Prague, Czech Republic. He is an expert in international migration, energy economics, tourism economics, and digital marketing. Wadim often acts as the national expert in the evaluation of various EU-funded projects and grant schemes, as well as of the educational systems of the EU and Russian Federation.

Wadim recieved a Master degree in Economics from the Charles University in Prague, and a second Master degree in Political Economy from the University of Siena. He gained his Ph.D. for the dissertation on the Economics of Migration from the Charles University in Prague and his second Ph.D. for his dissertation on the Economics of Small and Medium Enteprises in the context of Rural Development from the National University of Ireland, Galway.

"Science & Vie": 35 discoveries worth a Nobel prize

It is my great honour to annouce that a prestigious French popular science magazine "Science & Vie" included our paper into the list of "35 novel discoveries that are worth a Nobel Prize (but will probably never get it)"! The incrminated paper: 

Strielkowski, W., Lisin, E. and Welkins, E. (2013), Mathematical models of interactions between species: peaceful co-existence of vampires and humans based on the models derived from fiction, literature and films, Applied Mathematical Sciences, Vol. 7, no. 9-12: 453-470, ISSN 1312-885X is available here for download. The full text of the article at "Science & Vie" can be found here.

Improbable research: Vampires exist!

My serious research on a ridiculous topic has found its way to the the respected academic journals. It demonstrates that peaceful co-existence of humans and vampires is possible. See the two following papers for more details:
