The first run of the autumn school for Japanese students from a partner institution Kyushu Institute of Technology in Japan, took place at the Faculty of Chemical Technology of UCT Prague during the week of October 22. - 26. 2018. The event was led by Professor Josef Krýsa from the Department of Inorganic Technology and organized in collaboration with the Department of International Relations of UCT Prague.
Lessons were focused on Chemical Technologies and Advanced Materials and were taught in addition to Professor Josef Krýsa also by the associate-professor Martin Paidar from the Department of Inorganic Technology, Professor David Sedmidubský from the Department of Inorganic Chemistry, Professor Jaroslav Kvíčala from the Department of Organic Chemistry and associate-professor Pavel Novák from the Department of Metals and Corrosion Engineering.
Seven students from Kyutech were accompanied by professors Teruhisa Ohno and Teruyuki Nakato. The group had the chance to introduce Kyutech and their major subjects during an informal meeting at Carbon café.
The weeklong programme included many cultural and enriching activities and the students had for example the opportunity to visit successful manufacturing company RAKO 3, LASSELSBERGER s.r.o, in Lubná u Rakovníka, which is the biggest producer of ceramic wall and floor tiles in the Czech republic and ranks among the largest European tiling material producers at the same time.
After the first very successful run, the second one should be organized in the following academic year 2019/2020. At this time Kyutech will be the host institution. For further information you can contact the Department of International Relations in December.

Every year, the European Federation of Corrosion (EFC) awards three grants supporting international mobility and cooperation between European research teams in the area of corrosion and anti-corrosion protection at the world’s largest corrosion conference, EUROCORR. The grants are for early career researchers who would like to visit a foreign workplace under the supervision of experts as part of a short-term study stay.
One of the three grant recipients for 2019 is Darya Rudomilova from the Metallic Materials Construction Group at UCT Prague’s TECHNOPARK Kralupy. Rudomilova will have the opportunity to visit and work in Dr. Michael Rohwerder’s corrosion research group at the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung in Düsseldorf, Germany, a world-renowned center for novel electrochemical techniques related to atmospheric corrosion. During her stay, Rudomilova will focus on the detection of hydrogen in the structure of high-strength steel using the SKPFM (Scanning Kelvin Sample Force Microscopy) technique. Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and Scanning Kelvin Probe (SKP) techniques are also available at TECHNOPARK Kralupy, and the collaboration with the Rohwerder group will allow their wider application in research and development projects.
