”Research and development activities at the Faculty of Chemistry BUT are built upon high-quality laboratory equipment and computer technology. Experienced researchers with a background in many different areas of chemistry are essential to the process. They transfer their expert knowledge and experience to the younger generation of researchers – our doctoral programmes graduates – that grows bigger and stronger every year.“
