Centre for Energy and Environmental Technologies (CEET) is a university institute at VSB – Technical University of Ostrava which was established as of January 1, 2021 through the merger of the university institutes Nanotechnology Centre, Energy Research Centre, ENET Centre and Institute of Environmental Technology. 
In the first year of its operation in 2021 CEET succeeded to gain a strong position within the university structure and 
with a significant share of more than 25% of the scientific output CEET became the university leaders in Research and Development.

Our vision is to become a recognised university institute devoted to the development of new technologies and materials for low-carbon and sustainable energy and environmental technologies in line with the
principles of the circular economy. Our common denominator is energy transformation, a topic that cuts across all areas of our lives, from transport to industry and the environment. 
Through our research, we want to provide advanced technologies and methods that will enable the Czech Republic to complete the energy transformation successfully, i.e. the transition from fossil fuels to clean energy solutions.
An extremely important objective of our agenda must therefore be, in addition to the aforementioned transformation, energy self-sufficiency and raw material independence from countries with unstable geo-political environment. In practice, the application of these principles must aim to ensure a balance between policy measures, technological possibilities, and economic expectations.

The research team of CEET is unique. It comprises more than 200 scientists and researchers dedicated to basic, oriented basic, and applied research who are competent to address energy issues in a truly comprehensive manner. Like the rest of the world, we are looking for emission-free sources. However, another important requirement is to find solutions that do not lead to additional waste and landfill demand. At the same time, the matter of reducing pollutants already present in waste gases and air, as well as in water, must be addressed. One of the key raw materials that our research activities focus on is hydrogen. Hydrogen solutions will help us, for instance, ensure partial energy self-sufficiency and raw material independence for some of the regions.

CEET Vision

CEET aims to build a recognized university institute focused on developing new technologies and materials for low-carbon and sustainable energy and environmental technologies in line with the principles of circular economy, which is open to cooperation on current and strategic projects at the national and international level.

CEET Mission

CEET is a university institute focused on research and development in the field of low-carbon and sustainable energy and environmental technologies in line with the principles of circular economy. We offer sharing of our unique laboratory base with knowledgeable experts for research, development and education of students at all levels of study. We are open to cooperation with partners from the public sector, application sphere, universities and research organizations at the national and international level.

CEET Strategy

All CEET activities are coordinated to meet priorities from the regional to the international level in accordance with strategic documents with a strong emphasis on cooperation between the research and application spheres.

Our values

  • The courage to innovate
    We have an inherent curiosity and drive to push things further, beyond the horizon of current knowledge. We are a living laboratory, where we develop the knowledge we gain and subject it to investigation and validation for use in practice. We have the courage to seek unconventional solutions to current and future challenges.
  • Acquiring quality
    We strive for excellence in everything we do and do what we can be the best at. Quality is not only our goal, but also the way we work. We strive for maximum benefit in our relationships with students, staff and partners. Diversity and Accessibility.
  • The team can do more
    Team diversity is a strength of our centre. Teamwork and belonging based on mutual respect and openness is what binds our centre into a unique organism. We require each other to adhere to moral and ethical principles of conduct.
  • Awareness of responsibility
    We feel an integral part of the wider society. We want to be a role model for responsible behaviour and make a positive impact on the world around us. We believe in the transformative power of knowledge and consciousness.
  • Support and stability
    We are a support for employees and students and a reliable partner. We create a stable and safe environment for the development of personalities, where innovative thoughts and ideas are born and developed. Learning for practice has become an integral part of our work culture.
