CATRIN receives honourable mention in the Innovation of the Year competition

Honourable mention for the 4th generation Mössbauer spectrometer was awarded to Palacký University’s CATRIN in this year’s Innovation of the Year competition. The Association of Innovative Entrepreneurship of the Czech Republic, which announces this prestigious competition, awarded a total of ten out of 134 competing innovative products. The aim of the competition is to evaluate and award the best innovative products in the Czech Republic, in all fields.

“I am pleased that we made it to the final of the ten best innovation products. Although we did not win the main Innovation of the Year Award 2023, we were very pleased with the honourable mention for a successful innovation product. I see this as recognition and proof of the successful transfer of know-how from the university into practice,” said Jakub Navařík, who, as the author of the 4th generation spectrometer for analysis of materials containing iron or iron oxides, was handed out the award.

“The award ceremony itself was connected with the presentation of the awarded innovations, some of which were also inspiring for our work and further development. We also agreed to another two collaborations. A representative of Czechinvest expressed his interest in our 4th generation Mössbauer, and wants to add it to the pages presenting Czech innovations abroad,” said Roman Jurečka from CATRIN.

The Association of Innovative Entrepreneurship of the Czech Republic has announced the competition for the Innovation of the Year Award regularly since 1996. The competition evaluates the highest quality innovative products of applicants based in the Czech Republic. The main criteria are the technical level of the product, originality of the solution, market position and environmental impact. The complete results are available here.
