During the holidays, Associate Professor Viktor Prokop, Ph.D. from the Centre for Science and Research of the FEA and his foreign partners achieved significant success in the field of publications. A research article "On the path to sustainable development: the nexus between owner gender diversity, energy management, and firms' innovation radicalness" was published in the journal Business Strategy and the Environment. This is a journal whose metrics in the Web of Science database are among...
Scientists from the Centre of Materials and Nanotechnologies, Faculty of Chemical Technology, University of Pardubice in cooperation with the Institute of Chemical Process Fundamentals, CAS and Textile Testing Institute in Brno developed a personal filter against SARS-CoV-19 which could be well used in developing countries. The entire assembly, which fits into a backpack, does not use nanomaterials but commonly available fleece-like polyester fabric. The original system designed by Czech...
As part of the workshop organized yesterday by the FEA Science and Research Centre (SRC), Dr. Fazal ur Rehman presented an interesting paper "How to Conduct a Research Study: A Practical Approach for Beginners and Business Model Innovation for Circular Economy." The audience was mostly PhD. students of the faculty, a good number of whom are involved in innovation issues, their support, but also partly in selected aspects of the circular economy. This interesting paper was widely...
Sensors of the future 23. 06. 2022
Within an hour, he can produce hundreds of metres of smart sensors that prevent waste, save batteries or help farmers. Chemist Tomáš Syrový of the Faculty of Chemical Technology started with food and pharmaceuticals. Today he prints the sensors of the future.       At one of your lectures, you passed around a diaper right at the beginning. Why? The audience needs to be unlocked at the beginning. I'm trying to create a good atmosphere and at the...
The scientist and academic Pavlína Brothánková from the Faculty of Health Studies and her team travelled to Dresden to visit the Interdisziplinäres Zentrum für Riechen und Schmecken, a specialised research centre for smell and taste disorders, which brings together experts from all over the world. They met with Thommas Hummel, the director of the centre and a specialist in otorhinolaryngology, who has long been cooperating with Dr Jan Vodička, head of the ENT, Head and Neck Surgery Clinic...
