“We also have machines here which are capable of evaluating the hygienic properties of shoes. This refers to water vapour permeability, which is especially important for winter shoes and luxury work shoes intended for instance for firemen, soldiers or special service units,” explains Jarmila Roubínková, another technologist working at the Shoe Testing Laboratory. The centre employs young scientists as well as experienced technologists. R and D activities and practice are interconnected. Transfer of acquired knowledge from the field of basic research to practice is ensured at the university by the Technology Transfer Centre (TTC). The transfer of knowledge to practice is based on Bata-inspired business principles applied during the development of the technology transfer process based on cooperation and strengthening of the links between the University, businesses and regional administration authorities. The newly established Footwear Research Centre will also offer opportunities for the implementation of projects in the area of footwear design and construction. “We are dealing with new formulas for rubber footwear, we are interested in healthy footwear for children and preparing filaments for 3D prints of soles. Also, the so-called “smart shoe” project is about to be finalised and we have found an application for magnetic hydrogel in the shoe inserts. In fact, there is a whole lot of interesting projects and I am very happy to see that there will be even more of them,” concludes Sáha. (SV)
