On November 29, 2020, a ceremonial presentation of the CZECH HEAD 2020 awards for the best scientific projects took place in the National Museum.
VÚTS received the INDUSTRY category award for the development of the unique DIFA jet loom. This award is given annually by the Czech Head together with the Office of the Government of the Czech Republic and the Ministry of Industry and Trade.
The award is given for the most significant technological innovation that originated in the Czech Republic on the basis of one’s own research or in cooperation with a research organization.
This is the most prestigious Czech award for science and research and is often considered a "Czech Nobel Prize".
