Professor Tomáš Wágner has been involved in material research all his life and is expert on the elements of the chalcogen group. He is a chemist but his research is also into electrical engineering and optics with a possible overlap in medicine, environmental protection and safety. “Each element has a specific constitution and electron structure. Translated to human life, each element is a separate being. It has important properties that can be combined,” says the excellent scientist Professor...
The award for outstanding results in research, experimental development and innovation in the field of science was awarded by the Minister of Education, Youth and Sports to Michal Holčapek from the Faculty of Chemical Technology. The research led by Professor Michal Holčapek from the Faculty of Chemical Technology for which he received the Award of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports in the area of research, development and innovation focused on the detection of pancreatic cancer...
Doc. Ing. Viktor Prokop, Ph.D., deputy head of the Centre for Research and Development of the Faculty of Economics and Administration received the Rector´s Award for a publication in a specialised high impact factor journal in economy on the ocassion of the International Student Day.   His work titled „Configuration Paths to Efficient National Innovation Ecosystems“ was published in 2021 in Technological Forecasting and Social Change.

Last week, the Faculty of Economics and Administration welcome professor Jens Horbach from the University of Applied Sciences of Augsburg. Prof. Horbach read the lecture "The Importance of Regional Spill-over Effects for Eco-Innovations in German Start-ups" at the Workshop on Creating Business Models towards Circular Economy. On-line participants, prof. Wolfgang Gerstlberger and Tarlan Ahmadov, MSc. of the Tallinn University of Technology, addressed us with the lecture "Fiscal Incentives...
White titanium dioxide is frequently used in the form of nanoparticles. There is a real chance now that black titanium dioxide in the form of nanotubes will see its first industrial application; it will appear on a clock face of a famous watch manufacturer. When approached by this manufacturer, the team of Dr. Jan Macák conceived of the idea of producing black titanium dioxide. “We always strive for our materials having a variety of applications thanks to their properties. That is one of...
We talked to Jan Vodička, who is involved in research into smell and taste at the University of Pardubice. What is the clinician's view of Czech science? And how do innovations in medicine come into practice? You are a doctor with clinical experience, you work at the Faculty of Medical Studies at the University of Pardubice. When did you decide to dedicate your career to science as well? After completing my studies, I joined the Pardubice Hospital in the ENT department. I was lucky...
In collaboration with their colleagues, researchers from the Faculty of Economics and Administration are addressing the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic. They have deliberately chosen the Czech Republic and Slovakia for their empirical research focused on issues related to the COVID 19 crisis. Both countries have undergone a similar development, with positive results and international recognition in the first stage, while in the second stage the situation developed very negatively and both...
Scientists from the University of Pardubice obtained an American patent protection for a special alloy nanolayer with unique properties. It enables to save data thousand times faster and in ten times higher density than materials which have been used for storage media up until now. Researchers from the Faculty of Chemical Technology produced a nanolayer from material on the basis of chalcogenides, which have been subject to their long-term observation. „We concern ourselves with materials...
