The FIP Academy seminar will present research with great potential for future practical applications
Why is an international team of scientists developing a solar-thermal facade system? What can nanostructured thin films be used for? Participants in the online professional seminar, which the FIP Academy will hold on 1 December, will get answers to these questions. Those interested can look forward to presentations by Dieter Weise from the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology IWU, and Lukáš Halagačka from CEET and IT4Innovations at VSB - Technical University of Ostrava.

Dieter Weise, German scientist and Deputy Director of the Fraunhofer Innovation Platform will present the international joint research project FutureFacade - combination of individualised design and solar thermal energy through the use of a new forming process for metallic facade elements. "In the current discourse on energy transition, decentralised renewable energy production methods are increasingly coming into focus. Ideally, energy should be converted where it is actually used. Therefore, the FutureFacade project focuses on the development of a modern solar-thermal facade system," Weise outlined the main topic his presentation.

His Ostrava colleague Lukáš Halagačka, Head of the Laboratory of Physics of Nanostructures, will focus on the preparation and use of layered nanomaterials. "Thin layer deposition and nanostructuring using lithographic processes are fundamental building blocks of the complex optical, photonic, and microelectronic systems we encounter in everyday life," Halagačka outlines one of the directions of his presentation.

The online seminar, led in English, will start at 2pm, and those interested can register now via the online form.

The Fraunhofer Innovation Platform for Applied Artificial Intelligence for Materials and Manufacturing at VSB – Technical University of Ostrava was founded last June. The FIP Academy is a platform for sharing scientific knowledge and experience between scientists from the participating institutions.
