Josef Božek Centre of Competence for the Automotive Industry

Part of CTU participating in the research: Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, CTU in Prague.
Project period: 2012 – 2017

Innovations in the construction of vehicles and drives with combustion engines and with electric engines to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels and the production of emissions, maximum safety, comfort and pleasure while driving, meeting the legal requirements and interacting with the infrastructure and with other vehicles, Competitiveness in developing markets. The Centre brings together a number of innovations that have been developed for a directly applicable output or as a basis for further development. The knowledge database is used as an integrating element for the wide range of theme and the broad team of workers.

Advanced technology for producing heat and electricity

Part of CTU participating in the research: Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, CTU in Prague.

Project period: 2012 – 2019
Web: http://www.ptte.cz

This project aims to make use of the latest knowledge in the field  of  heating, especially by disseminating knowledge about the properties of fuels, raising the efficiency of equipment, reducing their consumption and optimizing distribution networks. Implementation of the research results in practical applications is ensured by the fact that the working team contains research, project and production organizations. The participating production companies will strengthen their positions in the market. The education of a new generation of specialists in heating engineering forms an integral part of the project.

Progressive detection systems for ionizing radiation

Part of CTU participating in the research: Faculty of Nuclear Science and Physical Engineering, CTU in Prague.
Project period: 2012 – 2019;

Together with ÚJP Praha, VF Černá Hora, Evolving Systems Consulting, ATG and TESTIMA, this CTU in Prague workplace has set up a consortium to carry out R&D on detection systems for ionizing radiation for application in medical diagnostics, radiotherapy, radiation dosimetry, defectoscopy, and other fields. Within the framework of the centre of competence, an expert workplace for microelectronics and a development workplace for detectors of ionizing radiation have been set up to ensure that the work at the Centre is carried out with the use of state-of-the art technology.

Centre of Competence – Mechanical engineering production technology

Part of CTU participating in the research: Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, CTU in Prague.
Project period: 2012 – 2019

Mechanical engineering production technology is the field that produces machine tools, moulding tools and new technology for all other fields of mechanical engineering. The main aim of the project is to carry out R&D on technical devices, solutions and technologies to improve the main useful properties of the  machines. These properties are: precision, quality, performance in production, reliability, cost-effectiveness and environment-friendliness. The aim of the project is to support excellence in this field in the Czech Republic, so that the Czech Republic can join the TOP TEN producers of machine tools in the world by 2020.

Centre for Effective and Sustainable Transport Infrastucture (CESTI)

Part of CTU participating in the research: Faculty of Civil Engineering, CTU in Prague.
Project period: 2013 – 2019
Web: http://www.cesti.cz/

The CESTI project works on technical innovations to resolve shortcomings in the present-day transport infrastructure. It covers the road and rail infrastructure, including bridges and tunnels. It works on environmental considerations as a whole, aspects of safety and reliability in construction, and systems for effective management of the infrastructure, while applying performance  parameters. CESTI responds to the need for a cost-effective, materially and energetically sustainable, technically long-lasting, reliable and continuously accessible transport infrastructure.

Centre for Integrated Satellite and Terrestrial Navigation Technologies
