The University Science Park is primarily focused on Materials Engineering in the field of ion and plasma technologies, automation and ICT implementation in industrial processes. The project comprises of two new buildings for the purposes of research, located on the Bottova campus.
Specific goals of the project are as follows:
- Increasing the long-term competitiveness of the SR in the area of materials research based on ion and plasma technologies.
- Training the scientific and research personnel for URP CAMBO – workplace for materials research.
Within the project, STU MTF will build two new research centres equipped with the most advanced technologies:
1/ Scientific centre of materials research with laboratories, comprised of the:
Laboratory of ion beam technologies
Laboratory of plasmatic modification and deposition
Laboratory of analytical methods
Laboratory of computational modelling.
2/ Scientific centre of automation and ICT implementation in production processes and related laboratories, comprised of the:
Laboratory of control systems
Laboratory of ICIM
Laboratory of information integration and control systems.
Besides creating the two new workplaces and purchasing unique technologies for materials research and research in the field of automation and ICT implementation in production processes and the related laboratories, the further planned activities are:
3/ Applied research in the above-mentioned research centres
4/ Support to transfer the advanced technologies into practice, transfer of know-how, innovations and knowledge from the academic environment into practice and providing support for start-up and spin-off activities.
