Thanks to the call of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA), we are implementing, together with our European partners, a new doctoral program. EUSpecLab will train students in spectroscopy, artificial intelligence, machine learning, material modeling, software development and other fields relevant to industry.
Application of Modern Technologies in Medicine and Industry (AMTMI), Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports in the program "Operational Program Research, Development and Education" in the call "Pre-application research for ITI", 1.5.2018 - 31.10.2022, project number: CZ.02.1.01 / 0.0 /0.0/17_048/0007280
The aim of AMTMI is to create methodologies and algorithms for the refinement of mathematical and experimental modeling of tissues and biological fluids. The project requires close cooperation with medical disciplines. Includes modeling of tissue perfusion and regeneration, hemodynamic processes in blood vessels, bone tissue and osteosynthesis, human biomechanical models
Security research for effective use of IR cameras in case of epidemic threats and crisis situations - „BETERKA“ - Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic - 1.1.2021- 31.12.2022, project number: VI04000029
The project is focused on the research of thermodiagnostic methods using IR cameras as tools for contactless and rapid identification of people with higher temperature and at the same time tools for effective security of the state and its citizens and crisis management and epidemic threats. The project, therefore, includes research into new and more reliable solutions for identifying people with higher body temperatures and research into epidemics. The project also includes dissemination activities towards individual components of the IRS, participants in command and crisis management, as well as manufacturers of thermal imaging systems and others.
National Center of Competence ENGINEERING (NCKS) - TAČR, 1.1.2019 - 31.12.2022, project number: TN01000015
NCKS is focused on research, development and innovation activities necessary to increase the competitiveness of the Czech engineering industry in the field of medium and light engineering. The intention is, through the joint implementation of applied R&D, to strengthen and further develop cooperation between companies and research organizations and increase their competitiveness. NCKS will deal with solving problems and topics important for future machine innovations, increasing their performance and accuracy and reducing energy consumption, as well as automation according to the trends of Industry 4.0.
Pre-application research of infrared technologies (LabIR-PAV) - Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports in the program "Operational Program Research, Development and Education" in the call "Pre-application research for ITI II", 1.7.2018 - 31.12.2022, project number: CZ.02.1.01 / 0.0 /0.0/18_069/0010018
Pre-application research in the field of photonics focused on widely applicable measurement methods based on physical processes in the field of infrared radiation. With the intentions of Industry 4.0, the research plan represents a potential innovative solution for intelligent laser production machines and predictive thermodiagnostic maintenance.
NTC Techlab-MIT Technology Center within the program "Operational Program Enterprise and Innovation for Competitiveness" in the call "INFRASTRUCTURE SERVICES - CALL VII - PUBLIC SUPPORT - ACTIVITY C)", 01.01.2021 - 30.06.2022, registration number: CZ.01.1 .02 / 0.0 / 0.0 / 20_329 / 0023413
This is an investment project whose subject is an investment in instrumentation and experimental equipment so that the research infrastructure of the NTC is completely supplemented and thanks to this the capacity of the NTC for cooperation with partners has been strengthened.
