Analytical chemist Michal Holčapek from the University of Pardubice received the Herbert J. Dutton Award in the USA as the first Czech ever. The credit for this goes to his many years of research on lipids at the Faculty of Chemical Technology. Among other results, this has led to a method that allows the detection of several types of cancer.   "I am very pleased that my research has received such prestigious recognition. AOCS helped me to collaborate with other colleagues...
A smart environmental sensor to help farmers manage irrigation efficiently is a discovery by the researchers from the Faculty of Chemical Technology at the University of Pardubice and their partners. The novelty in the field of material printing can measure both soil moisture and temperature, thus helping farmers save money and increase production.   "Our smart sensors can measure different parameters at several soil depths. A communication unit is connected to the sensor to...
At the beginning of June, a new post-doc Dr. Fazal ur Rehman from Lakki Marwat University, Pakistan, joined the FEA Science and Research Centre (SRC). During his six-month stay at our faculty, he will be researching the parameters and determinants of triangular cooperation between businesses, universities and public sector institutions. Dr. Fazal will try to apply this well-known concept in a new way, in the context of circular economy under the mentorship of associate professor Viktor...
The research group from the Institute of Economic Sciences and Science and Research Centre of the Faculty of Economics and Administration has recorded yet another success. A co-research project CA20123 - IGCOORD "Intergovernmental Coordination from Local to European Governance" has been awarded funding from the EU-COST programme and it is currently being realised. The Czech Republic is represented in the coordinating committee of the whole project (Management committee) by prof. Jan Stejskal...
Experts from the Faculty of Restoration at the University of Pardubice participated in the restoration of a valued mosaic from the period of socialist realism in Liberec. The mosaic depicting a female and male student with attributes of technical disciplines towered over the entrance to the former dormitory, which is now part of the Technical University of Liberec. Due to the reconstruction of the building and work on its restoration, the restorers had to remove it from the wall three years ago...
Professor Petr Hajek and his team from the Science and Research Centre of the Faculty of Economics and Administration obtained a prestigious project of the Czech Science Foundation. The project deals with aspect-based sentiment analysis of financial texts for predicting corporate financial performance. Congratulations.
The method of pancreatic cancer diagnosis, as discovered by the team of analytical chemist Michal Holčapek of the Faculty of Chemical Technology, University of Pardubice, has earned worldwide recognition. The result of the research has been published by the prestigious journal Nature Communications, which publishes only the best discoveries from all areas of natural sciences in the world. The cited method of diagnosing pancreatic cancer can detect the disease at an early stage by...
Scientists at the Centre for Materials and Nanotechnologies (CEMNAT), the Faculty of Chemical Technology at the University of Pardubice, have introduced a new air filtration system that effectively prevents SARS-COV-2 transmission indoors. The device, which significantly reduces the concentration of ultrafine aerosol particles, is being tested by Pardubice scientists at the university in cooperation with the Czech Academy of Sciences and the Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU). So...
