Scientists from eight European countries and different disciplines will come together to research new types of sensors. Researchers from the Faculty of Chemical Technology at the University of Pardubice are also part of the project. The innovative sensors are intended to improve water quality monitoring in the Green Deal for Europe context. Within four years, scientists should develop photonic and electrochemical sensors that can detect, for example, microplastics, organic substances, the...
These days, a multidisciplinary team of European researchers, which includes researchers from Faculty of Chemical Technology, University of Pardubice, leaded by Prof. Petr Němec, launched a new, four-year research project devoted to the development of cutting-edge in situ sensors for real-time water quality monitoring.   The projects aims to develop four novel optimally functionalized sensor modules based on complementary photonics and electrochemical technologies to improve...
What did women write about in their diaries in the 19th century? Why do people have such a negative view of feminism? Milena Lenderová, historian at the Faculty of Arts and Philosophy, deals with women's history and gender issues. "Even today, the view persists that women's domain is the home," she says.   You study the 19th century. How did women live then?  The whole 19th century is quite a long period. At its beginning, the situation for women was incomparable to...
His territory is an operating theatre in a war zone. Karel Odložilík, an OT nurse in the army and a Faculty of Health Studies graduate, has experienced base attacks, and many wounded and losses on eight foreign missions – memories that will remain with him for the rest of his life. But he made friends and gained valuable experience.   What is the job of a perioperative or OT nurse? A perioperative nurse works in the operating theatre and cares for the patient before,...
The best Czech triathlete, Radim Grebík, is an engine driver. This student of the Faculty of Transport Engineering decided to swap swimming, cycling and running for the railway, which he had dreamed of since he was a little boy.   You have been called the best Czech triathlete, yet you decided to leave the sport behind. Why? I got into elite sports a few years ago by accident. Now, I'm at a certain level where I realise it's not my place. The best athletes think...
When she's not running around the court, she wears a white coat and locks herself in the lab. Denisa Kolářová, a PhD student at the Faculty of Chemical Technology, is not only a scientist in Professor Holčapek's successful team, but also a Czech national team player, coach and referee in korfball.    Korfball is not a very common sport. How would you describe it?  Korfball is the only ball game that girls and boys play together. There must be four girls and...
