As a specialist on the coronavirus economic impact, macroeconomic development and financial literary, Jiří Nožička of the Jan Perner Faculty of Transport believes that the pandemic will change our financial behaviour and that we will start paying attention not only to weather forecasts, but also to the economic ones. “It is really important to follow such forecasts. The fact is that some 20% of Czechs had no savings before the outbreak, “says Nožička. How severe was the impact of the...

It was already at a primary school back in Slovakia that Filip Bureš fell for chemistry. He can recall in great detail all visits to the chemistry lab and the experiments done there. After his father let him have a small lab of his own in his company in Lanškroun, Czech Republic, he has stayed with the field up to now. Today, Professor Filip Bureš works at the Faculty of Chemical Technology, and together with his team develops new organic materials that may be used in areas such as electronics...
  Plague, cholera, typhus, smallpox. These diseases at the time were killing the inhabitants of all continents. Like the current COVID-19, which struck a hundred years after the eradication of the Spanish flu. The gauze mask became a symbol of that time. Vladan Hanulík, an expert in the history of medicine at the Institute of Historical Sciences, Faculty of Arts, University of Pardubice, says that it was not the healthiest or wisest who survived in epidemics. It was a coincidence or...
The University of Pardubice helps with the analysis of samples for the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Researchers and doctoral students of the Faculty of Chemical Technology examine dozens of samples a day in unique specially secured laboratories. The faculty has applied for funding to purchase additional devices that can significantly increase this capacity. "I am glad that we use our specially secured laboratory, in addition to basic research, also for the analyses so necessary today. This...
To date, there are hundreds of coronavirus cases in the Czech Republic. The whole country is under a lockdown and no one can tell how the situation will further develop.  The whole world is combating the virus. And people keep asking when we will control the virus. “I believe that Europe will control the virus in two or three months. The number of people who have had the infection will be sufficient to prevent the virus from mass spreading,” says Professor Zuzana Bílková of the Faculty of...
Two postgraduate students, Kateřina Šulcová (Pastirčáková) and Jaromír Šulc, have developed an algorithm that will save money of transport companies. Moreover,  they successfully presented it at a conference in Orlando, USA. Their algorithm helps to take managerial decisions to streamline internal processes, and it answers the question of what connections need to be taken out of service to save a vehicle, a driver, and thereby even the funds. "We can outsource the connection...
Detection of pancreatic cancer at an early stage. It was precisely a year ago that Professor Michal Holčapek of the Faculty of Chemical Technology presented a method that may save the lives of hundreds of thousands of patients. Journalists kept asking for interviews, doctors asked for the test results, and Professor Holčapek kept receiving one phone call after another. Volunteers wanted to join the research project and offered their samples for analysis. It will take some time, however, to...
