New opportunities for PhD students

STUVIN and INVUST are abbreviations that resonate with the faculties FŽP and PŘF. These are two complementary projects that will enable us to intensively innovate scientific and technical doctoral study programs at UJEP and provide modern research and teaching conditions for scientific capacities. We can look forward to a unique workplace that thanks to these activities the Ústí Region will gain.

The preparation of all four programs is a collective work of a number of university employees headed by project administrators and guarantors for individual accreditation:

prof. Ing. Pavel Janoš, CSc. (ECHT)

SMART CITY course for UJEP students

At UJEP, a Smart City course starts, introducing SMART to students. Smart City is a very topical subject that the world is talking about. Above all, it is an interdisciplinary, comprehensive concept and needs to be addressed across institutions and the public.

SMART intertwines with professional activities across several UJEP faculties and is reflected in major projects. The course was designed to improve the SMART research theme at the university and to support the implementation of innovative technologies and approaches to the daily life of citizens of the Ústí Region.

The course was supported by the Smart City – Smart Region – Smart Community project.

Greenery in the city not only as an aesthetic element

Does your city or municipality use rainwater, monitor and ensure efficient use of public areas, or perhaps water infiltration, for example, in car parks? And why are these topics important?

Signs of climate change have a significant impact on the quality of life in cities. Green and blue infrastructure is one of the ways to face the challenges of manifestations such as the city’s heat island, drought, lightning floods, etc. In addition, nature-friendly measures have a number of side benefits, such as aesthetic, psychological and health effects, etc.

Smart mobility – Smart transport

How is the concept of Smart City currently perceived? How to implement car-sharing? How will population transport affect the availability of information and communication technologies? Is there a potential for reducing the total mileage? Answers to these and other questions were sought by participants in the 11th December Workshop at the UJEP Smart City – Smart Region.
