Scientists from the University of Pardubice obtained an American patent protection for a special alloy nanolayer with unique properties. It enables to save data thousand times faster and in ten times higher density than materials which have been used for storage media up until now. Researchers from the Faculty of Chemical Technology produced a nanolayer from material on the basis of chalcogenides, which have been subject to their long-term observation. „We concern ourselves with materials...
The rail traffic management in Europe will become more modern and safer thanks to the EGNOS satellite navigation system that has been used in civil aviation up to now. The use of satellite navigation for train positioning also involves reduction of operation costs. Aleš Filip, Associate Professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics won the Galileo Masters 2020, a prestigious award in the field. “Thanks to using satellites for train positioning, it will be possible to have...
From Sugar to Fame 24. 05. 2021
Sixteen months. For such a long time did the experts from the Faculty of Restoration keep a 7,000 years old well in sugar solution.

Have you ever found a package of sausages expired by a day or two in your fridge and wondered whether you could still eat them? In the future, this will probably be answered by intelligent packaging co-developed by Czech scientists. For example, smart labels with sensors will be able to detects whether the food has been stored correctly or not. The information will then be simply passed on to the retailer’s or customer’s smartphone via the commonly used NFC technology. “These labels are,...

A researcher of the University of Pardubice becomes the Czech winner of the Galileo Masters 2020 in recognition of a solution that Europe has spent 10 years looking for. Aleš Filip of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics proposed a solution that may reduce railway traffic management costs while improve the safety thanks to the EGNOS SoL service for aviation. “ Our faculty sees the award in such a prestigious competition as a sign of recognition of our long-term...
Milena Lenderová is a prominent Czech historian. Her main focus lies in the history of everyday life and history of gender in the 19th century. When I wanted to learn more about the beginnings of female emancipation, I did not hesitate a moment to decide who I would approach. For centuries, women’s role was subordinated to that of men.
