20.05.20 The development of clean energy will bring more than 300 billion crowns of investments, according to a study in which the Faculty of Electrical Engineering participates

A total of 327.5 billion crowns will come from investments to achieve the goal of developing renewable resources, which was set by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic. The amount was calculated by experts from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University and the Chamber of Renewable Energy Sources. According to a study by the Chamber, approximately 70 billion crowns of public support will be needed to trigger these investments. The Modernization Fund will be key, the conditions of which are currently being finalized by the Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic.

Attendees can join a full program and speakers from all tracks according to their interests or time availability.

16.04.20 Li-Fi in the University hospital Motol was tested by colleagues from the dept. of electromagnetic field

The researchers from the Wireless and Fibre Optics Group, Petr Chvojka and Stanislav Zvanovec, cooperated with colleagues from the Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz Institute on the testing of a Li-Fi system in an operating room in Motol University Hospital. The results were presented at the conference OFC 2020, San Diego, USA. Also, a short interview about the experiment was published in the IEEE Spectrum magazine.

09.04.20 Algorithm by the scientists from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering CTU in Prague will help automate coronavirus testing at the Motol University Hospital

Scientists and students from the Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Electrical Engineering CTU (FEE CTU) in cooperation with the Faculty of Science, Charles University and the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics (CIIRC) are working on automation of COVID-19 sample testing for the Motol University Hospital. The algorithm currently being developer is designed to allow hospital pipetting robots to handle samples quickly and safely, avoiding cross-contamination. The involvement of the Opentrons and Beckman Biomek 3000 robots will make it possible to use test kits newly developed at the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry AS CR (IOCB AS CR) and can have a major impact on the testing process. If successful, it will replace the work of the laboratory technicians, who will be given room to carry out other activities related to fighting the coronavirus. New software could be deployed during Easter.
