INTERFACE Newsletter

The bilingual newsletter INTERFACE has been published by the Technology Transfer Office of the Masaryk University since 2007. INTERFACE presents topics from the areas of technology and knowledge transfer, practical application of research results or successful academic business activities. Every issue includes interviews with scientists and representatives of both MU and the companies which the university cooperates with. Furthermore, the newsletter provides information on new technologies developed at MU, articles about events held by our office or overviews of patents and industrial designs obtained by the university. You can open the individual issues in pdf by clicking on the thumbnails.

Dobrý den,
dnes nám z tiskárny přišel newsletter Inteface, kde je i článek o diagnostickém centru, co jsme spolu v únoru řešily. Časopis je v česko-anglické podobě dostupný na webu: http://www.ctt.muni.cz/media/2603507/interface_01_16_web.pdf
Článek jsem s rozšířenou fotogalerií vydala i zlášť v novinkách na webu:
  • česká verze: http://www.ctt.muni.cz/cs/novinky-a-akce/fakulta-prodava-zdrave-boty-na-oplatku-ziska-vedecka-data
  • anglická verze: http://www.ctt.muni.cz/en/events/fakulta-prodava-zdrave-boty-na-oplatku-ziska-vedecka-data
V tištěné podobě budeme časopis distribuovat v následujících dnech (st/čt) na všechna pracoviště MU (bude ve stojanech Muni) a panu doc. Zvonařovi budu posílat jeden výtisk vnitropoštou napřímo.
Budeme rádi, když to případně zpropagujete na fakultním webu nebo FB stránce.
Díky a přeji hezký den!

Iveta Zieglová
