Telecommunications are one of the leading backbones of the present-day, and especially of the future technical fields of science. The Telecommunications Department of VŠB-Technical University of Ostrava has build up a high-grade device and materials background due to which it is streets ahead of the others both in the Czech and the Slovak Republics. The foundations of this significant university establishment were laid with the team´s own hands and at the Department´s own expenses. Therefore, due to this, as well as due to the fact that it is a case of the branches with a sizeable added value, education of highly specialized professionals in the device and materials demanding fields of the future should be subsidized by the public financial means, since, in reality, very fast return on this investment can be expected.
Within the framework of the project, the staff of the Telecommunications Department will be able to improve and expand their own professional research excellence, e.g. by regularly participating in a newly organized professional Telecommunications Educational Seminar. They will also be able to attend international conferences and trade fairs. Further on, there will be a possibility of improving their language competences, establishing new professional contacts, discovering of new research topics, chances of joining the research and educational activities at the researcher´s workplace even after the project´s completion.
