The Czech technical university in Prague (and its part Faculty of Mechanical Engineering) is focused on tertiary education as well as on research and development in technical disciplines. Research and creative activity is the basic right and obligation of the academic staff at the university. This activity allows their professional development, enables integration of science and education and presents university and its faculties to the public. The scientific research and development as well as creative technical activities are realized within the specific research and implementation of projects that are financed by institutional support, national and international grant competitions and cooperation with industry. Transfer of technologies and development of innovations is implemented through construction of systems, development of new materials and technical solutions, development of instrumentation and measurement techniques and methods. Results and achievements at the university and faculties are annually published in the proceedings “CTU Research Activity Report”.
