Two new significant workplaces were established within the Operational Programme Research and Development in 2013 – University Science Park and Research Centre. The results of the science and research activities of the University have a significant influence not only on educational activities but also on the development of international cooperation or interconnection with practice. One of the proofs of the successful transfer of science and research results into practice is the Award for Technology Transfer for the team of authors from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Žilina.
