Abstract:The project „Education and Development of Research Team for Centre of Material Science at the University of Pardubice“, called also “TEAM CMV”, has started on the 1st of August 2009 in the framework of the Operational Programme Education for Competitiveness. This project is funded by the European Social Fund and the state budget of the Czech Republic.
The main objective of the project is to realize a comprehensive professional educational programme for training of young and prospective researchers. The training is first of all dedicated to the students of doctoral and master study programmes at the University of Pardubice. Subsequent target groups are experienced senior researchers who play mainly the role of lectors, and interested public.
The project reflects the structure and orientation of the Centre of Material Science, the institute of the University of Pardubice. The main area of education is material science with the accent on current knowledge and practical applications in the field of chemistry, solid state physics, optics, optoelectronics, special materials, nanomaterials and new energy sources.
The project consists of 6 key activities (KA): KA01 Theoretical and practical education given by Czech researchers, KA02 Lectures and practical training leaded by international experts, KA03 Practical training abroad, KA04 Active participation on research conferences, KA05 Research popularization and KA06 Evaluation of the educational programme. The project activities have been running since the 1st of October 2009 in the yearly period from October to July.
In the framework of this project have already held lectures both domestic and international experts such as Prof. Kasap from Canada, Prof. Shimakawa and Prof. Tanaka from Japan, Prof. Gregory from the Great Britain, Prof. Holý from the Charles University in Prague (Czech Republic), Prof. Celý from the Masaryk University in Brno (Czech Republic) and others.
The project realization phase will end on the 31st of July 2012, nevertheless the high evaluated lectures and practical training will continue.
