Dear colleagues, dear students,
The +/- FEE student club invited students of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University to model a 3D design of a little lion by 7 March, 2021. The small figures printed on a 3D printer will then be released as trekking objects in geo-caches in order to gain experience in all regions of the Czech Republic. It will be possible to follow their movement on the map or to actively participate in geocaching and thus help the lion cubs in their journey and fulfill their goals.
The Faculty of Information Technology co-organizes, in cooperation with other entities, the student international online innovation ideathon UniHack, which aims to help improve the educational system. It takes place from 5 to 7 March, 2021. It will be divided into three categories: Skills and learning certificates, Matchmaking and exchanging knowledge and Project based learning.
The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague is organizing a virtual tour on 13 March, 2021 from 16.00 for those interested in studying, as well as the general public. The program at the beginning will include visits to several laboratories, which are closed during normal open days. The program will continue with a lecture and discussion, which will take place on YouTube with the possibility of chat, during which you will get all the information about the possibilities and conditions of study. The chat will also be attended by the Dean of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering CTU prof. Michael Valášek and vice-dean for pedagogical activities doc. Jan Reznicek.
Also in this academic year, the individual faculties and the Masaryk Institute of Advanced Studies are preparing for the Days of Open Doors. In regard for the epidemiological situation, they will be online. Come and see possibilities to study at CTU.

Researchers from the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics (CIIRC) of the Czech Technical University in Prague have created a unique algorithm that can find the optimal setting of the laboratory system to evaluate as many samples as possible in the shortest possible time. Patients can thus expect the laboratory can evaluate more samples and also that they will obtain test results sooner. In response to the situation surrounding the global COVID-19 pandemic, PREVEDIG medical - a laboratory diagnostic center, Beckman Coulter - a leading supplier of laboratory analyzers and laboratory automation, and CIIRC CTU. Together, they focused on how to process more samples with the laboratory's current capacity. By optimizing and adjusting the settings of the laboratory system, it was possible to increase the number of samples in order of tens of percent.
Kateřina Průchová's diploma project Zlatá stoka, was ranked among the 12 best projects of the Young Talent Architecture Awards (YTAA) international competition. In her work created in the Novotný – Koňata – Zmek architectural studio, the author offers attractive architectural and urban solutions in the landscape around Zlatá stoka, a once indispensable water works in southern Bohemia.
After obtaining the European patent (April 2020), researchers from the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics of the Czech Technical University (CTU CIIRC) and the Institute of Physics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic (FZU AV ČR) have now obtained the US patent and have now access to the market of largest number of nuclear reactors in the world. All 94 nuclear reactors in the United States can use a patented method of protecting the surface of fuel cells from corrosion, which will extend the life of fuel cells under both emergency and standard conditions.
