Activities of the Centre for clean and intelligent technologies are concentrated on the soft technical infrastructure in settlement environment with special focus on the air quality, with the perspective to expand into the other fields.


Urban Resilience

Acceleration of the spatial development has generated an increased probability of having to face negative effects of globalisation as well as EU integration. Recent economic and financial crisis highlighted this risk and created threats which were not acute some years ago. Fragile spatial and societal structures have been exposed to huge pressure originated either from international markets, unfavourable demographic prognosis, environmental hazards or other sources of risk. Urban resilience is the ability of cities and municipalities to absorb, cope and overcome these setbacks.

The main aim of INSPIRATION is to develop a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) to inform environmentally friendly, socially acceptable and economically affordable soil and land use management that meets societal needs and challenges. A SRA built on end-user knowledge needs is more likely to be enthusiastically adopted by funders in order to promote the knowledge creation, transfer and implementation agenda. SPECTRA Centre of Excellence EU at the STU in Bratislava acts as the National Focus Point for INSPIRATION Project in the frame of WP2, supported by the Catholic University in Ruzomberok, Institute of Landscape Ecology and Institute of Forest Ecology of the Slovak Academy of Science.
