Business - Innovations - Technology (BIT of WUT)

We are proud to present the intellectual potential of WUT’s students, graduates and employees in the new folder entitled “Business - Innovations – Technology”

Warsaw University of Technology has researchers working on a range of scientific topics which are explored in different areas and on different scale. Often the outcome of these helps with development of new technologies or everyday products to come into being.

Here we would like to present the diversity of topics which are of interest to WUT’s researchers.

Only a relatively small fraction of the solar radiation falling on photovoltaic cells produces energy. The rest of the energy is lost, mainly in the form of heat. Researchers from the Warsaw University of Technology are working on a material with a negative refractive index, which will not only reduce the heating of the cell, but will also increase the efficiency of energy generation.

Experts from Poland and Norway are collecting and analysing information that will help understand how people travel around cities. The conclusions will be used to define actions that would promote a wider use of environmentally-friendly means of transport. The work is performed by a team from the WUT Faculty of Mathematics and Information Science, headed by Professor Maciej Grzenda.
