CEITEC Brno University of Technology is part of the CEITEC Centre of Scientific Excellence. Since 2011, it has been a key part of a cutting-edge research infrastructure with unique equipment and conditions for basic and applied research in the field of advanced nanotechnology, advanced materials and cybernetics.

At CEITEC BUT, scientists are currently engaged in a total of three areas of research. These are Advanced Nanotechnology and Microtechnology, Advanced Materials and Technical Cybernetics, Instrumentation and Systems Integration.

The 18 research groups currently involved deal with ceramic, advanced polymer, bioelectric, low-dimensional or epitaxial materials, as well as biomaterials. Within the development of new materials, we also have research groups interested in materials characterization and advanced instrumentation per se, and even the development of advanced coatings directly for industry. Researchers at CEITEC BUT are working on the preparation and characterization of nanostructures, molecular nanostructures, nanomagnetism and spintronics or magneto-optical ThZ spectroscopy. They also excel in research on future energies, plasma technologies or experimental biophotonics. Our research focus is also extended to include developments in cybernetics and robotics. 

The main priorities of CEITEC BUT include not only international research cooperation, but also its interdisciplinary character. The shared CEITEC Nano laboratories, which operate in open access mode, provide ideal conditions for addressing multidisciplinary issues, as their facilities can also be used by external users, institutions or industry partners.

In 2018, two ERC grants were launched at CEITEC BUT, one of which focuses on improving the efficiency of cancer treatment (Vojtěch Adam) and the other deals with the development of new spectroscopy and microscopy technologies (Petr Neugebauer). The third ERC grant started in 2021 and addresses breakthrough research and development of wireless nerve stimulation in the human body (Eric D. Glowacki). Another significant achievement is the award of the international European project RICAIP, which has built the Industry 4.0 Testbed at CEITEC BUT, which we inaugurated in the winter of 2022.
