Years of experience show the multiple benefits of cooperation for both the industrial and academic sector. Therefore, our long-term strategy is to expand the possibilities of this cooperation and to search for its new forms.
Since its re-establishment in 1992, the Faculty of Chemistry has emphasised the cooperation with industrial and innovative companies in order to ensure the transfer of results of professional and scientific activities into practice, while keeping track of current needs and trends in related industries. The professional cooperation is focused mainly on the fields of material chemistry, physical and consumer chemistry, environmental chemistry and technology, food chemistry and biotechnology.
Over time, the cooperation with industry in the context of projects funded from European and domestic public sources has become increasingly important. The launch of the new funding programmes – the 7th EU Framework Program and the new European Funds programming period – offers significant potential for further qualitative and quantitative development of cooperation with industrial partners.
