Science and Research

The scientific and creative activities of the faculty are focused on basic and applied research in a number of scientific and technological disciplines. In many cases, research is interdisciplinary and requires collaboration across the faculty and other university institutions. Applied research conducted for partners from the industrial sphere also plays an important role in the activities of the faculty. If you are interested in collaboration, please contact the Vice-Dean for Science, Research and International Relations, P. Šidlof.

Below you will find a selection of the main themes of the faculty’s research activities, divided into individual specializations with links to specific workplaces and contact persons. See also the catalogues of our institutes, laboratories, departments and research groups. A range of laboratories is operated as a joint workplace of our faculty and the Institute for Nanomaterials, Advanced Technologies, and Innovation - contact: M. Černík.
