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.

LIGMIG – a new project will support young scientists in research

The team of workers and students of the Faculty of Environment and the Faculty of Science succeeded in the call of the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic within the program ZÉTA to support applied research. The program aims to connect academia and businesses and support young scientists under 35 years of age.

The team led by Dr. Hana Malinska, Ph.D. The Commission has been interested in the plan to optimize the process of producing energy biomass with regard to its chemical composition. The project is a follow-up to several years of research on the cultivation of the energy crop Miscanthus x giganteus on contaminated and infertile soils carried out at the FŽP in cooperation with other faculty staff.

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)
