NTC : New Technologies – Research Centre
NTC - focuses on research, development and innovations for industrial applications since 2000. NTC is an independent self-financed institute of the University of West Bohemia. It is equipped with cutting edge research technologies and facilities. Experienced, reliable and dedicated multinational team of more than 130 researchers conduct basic and applied research, development and innovations for industrial applications mainly in the following areas: laser technologies; industrial thermography-thermometry; new materials’ development and materials’ testing; development of new polymer composites; measurement and simulation of deformations and dynamic processes; measurement and simulation of temperatures’ fields and heat transfer; measurement and simulation of complex fluid flow; new thin-layer materials (photovoltaics, photonics, microsystems), energy storage systems; biomechanical models of humans; man machine interaction.
For over fifteen years have our teams provided cutting edge research and interdisciplinary solutions across the entire value chain – from the idea to the prototype. Our researchers have published prestigious articles e.g. in Nature Communications, have patented their solutions and successfully applied innovative technologies and results in various industries around the world.
NTC co-operates with dozens of domestic and as well as international industrial companies on solving their technical and technological problems. NTC partners with renowned research institutions and professional organizations. Participates in EU and other grant programmes worldwide.
