Visits by foreign experts at UJEP

UJEP has been actively cooperating with foreign companies for a long time. Several foreign experts visited the University of Ústí as part of the STUVIN project. This has been a great asset to the University, as both the staff and students and the public have the opportunity to meet and discuss each other on a variety of topics. At the same time, the experiences that are used in the creation of new fields of study are shared.

During the solution of the STUVIN project, which is coordinated by the Faculty of the Environment, many internships of FŽP and PřF were mediated and very interesting and important guests came to UJEP. We bring you an overview of the most interesting visitors.

Water in cities: Organica Water and us

Smart and water? Water purification can look different, we have been inspired where the purifier does not have to be hidden from the city’s residents and can become a valid part of the holiday zones.

On 5-6 March 2019, a two-day study visit to Budapest took place, organized by the Union for the Establishment and Maintenance of Green in the framework of the “Smart and Green – On the Spot in Visegrad Cities” project. This project is thematically friendly to the “Smart city – Smart region – Smart community” project, which is also addressed by the research team from UJEP, for which Marek Hekrle attended the visit.

The study visit focused on successfully implemented examples of smart wastewater management and blue and green urban infrastructure. An important purpose of the visit was also the interdisciplinary drawing of ideas and knowledge about smart technologies and the establishment of international cooperation among participants from the Visegrad countries.

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)
Doc. Ing. Martin Kormunda, Ph.D. (AFM)
prof. RNDr. Pavla Čapková, DrSc. (AN)
Doc. Ing. Petr Vráblík, Ph.D. (OK)

Project Guarantees are:

STUVIN: Doc. Ing. Josef Trögl, Ph.D.
