On Tuesday, the 29th of November, during the Czech Space Week event, representatives of the Prague Technology Centre presented awards for the best technological ideas for new applications of space technologies in terrestrial sectors. The Get Space Inspired competition supported by the European Space Agency (ESA) brought together six ideas.
The second prize and a cheque for EUR 5,000 went to Veronika Linhartová from our company. Our project proposed the use of an ESA-patented thermal insulation material to improve the properties of a beehive. The innovation allows the temperature inside the hive to be raised to exactly the level at which the bee mite mite dies and the infectious disease varroasis does not develop. The hive itself will thus cure the colony very effectively, using only solar energy and without the need for treatment with expensive and risky chemicals.
