  • Low cost, green absorbents and their role in wastewater treatment

    The reclamation for recycled water has fast gained into prominence mainly on account of the demand for fresh water and rising health concerns on the adverse effect of increasing pollutant contamination. The adsorption technology is considered ideal in the treatment of wastewaters on account of its non-specificity towards the pollutant irrespective of their diverse nature. […] The post Low cost, gr...

  • Industry 4.0 − the catalyst for our so needed EU growth?

    By Elodie Bugnicourt (Ph.D.) and David F. Nettleton (Ph.D.) The world has gone through 3 well re-known industrial revolutions linked respectively to steam machine appearance in the 19th century, mass production at the beginning of the last century culminating with the Ford model for work division, the use of electronics to programme manufacturing machines in […] The post Industry 4.0 − the catalys...

  • Industry 4.0 – Opportunities and Challenges of Cyber-Physical System

    By David F. Nettleton (Ph.D.) and Elodie Bugnicourt (Ph.D.) Industry 4.0 refers to an industrial revolution based on cyber-physical systems, in order to evolve towards “smart factories” which have a modular structure, and in which cyber-physical systems monitor physical processes by creating a virtual copy of the physical world thus facilitating decentralized decision making. Also, […] The post In...

  • Mapping out research and predicting future innovation!

    By Elodie Bugnicourt (Ph.D.) and David F. Nettleton (Ph.D.) In our last blog post, we saw how the data mining of past research studies can be used to define emerging scientific areas and shape certain funding policies. Let’s focus now on how it can help in identifying future innovations. Based on 43 million of scientific […] The post Mapping out research and predicting future innovation! appeared ...

  • Grape pomace: Nature´s cheap solution to water pollution problems

    Commercial activated carbons, produced from non-renewable coal, petroleum residues and from plant by-products like wood and coconut shells, are used to clean up wastewaters via the removal and recovery of chemical pollutants. The technology of adsorbing the pollutants works when the high surface area, porous and chemically active surfaces of the activated carbons come into […] The post Grape pomac...

  • Data mining as a decision support tool for funding of emerging scientific and technological research

    By David F. Nettleton (Ph.D.) and Elodie Bugnicourt (Ph.D.) Identifying which topics, researchers and institutions to fund is a key issue for funding bodies. Current approaches rely on peer review, in which renown experts who are active in different discipline areas, use a predefined set of criteria to reach a consensus to evaluate presented proposals […] The post Data mining as a decision support...

  • Open Innovation 2.0

    While the paradigm of how to innovate has drastically changed during the last decades, open innovation, referring to the use of both inflows and outflows of knowledge to improve internal innovation, is not new as it dates as far back as the 1960s. So immersed in a strange paradox between outmost confidentiality and protection around […] The post Open Innovation 2.0 appeared first on Iris.

  • IRIS participating in ICIEMPM 2016 Congress

    Dr. David F. Nettleton, of IRIS Advanced Engineering, will be presenting a paper entitled “Towards Automatic Calibration of In-line Machine Processes”, in the 18th International Conference on Industrial Engineering and Manufacturing Process Modeling (ICIEMPM 2016), in London, July 28-29. The paper is also co-authored by Dr. Elodie Bugnicourt (IRIS), Christian Wasiak (IPT Fraunhofer) and Alejandro ...

  • Here come the Dragons! …and this is not a Game of Thrones.

    After reading ‘Building Dragons’ by Daniel Newman (with Olivier Blanchard), I am fascinated with Dragons (and that’s coming from someone who has never seen an episode of Game of Thrones
