"Exploring the mechanisms of gender effects in user innovation" is a paper that contributes to shed some light on user innovation gender differences, proposing a framework to explain the role of gender in user innovation, having in consideration both a direct and an indirect effect.
Bee2WasteCrypto aims to bring a revolution to the waste management sector - as the energy sector did 20 years ago - by developing a new and innovative IT tool that may contribute to empower Regional Waste Management Utilities (RWMU) and to promote new citizen behavior in terms of waste generation and handling.
A range extender (RE) is a device used in electric vehicles (EVs) to generate electricity on-board. This paper describes an efficiency-oriented RE based on a small motorcycle engine modified to the efficient over-expanded cycle. The results indicate that it is possible to have an efficient solution, in-line with the electric mobility sustainability paradigm, which can solve most of the shortcomings of current EVs in a sustainable way.
The first meeting of the European IMPROVEMENT, a project on zero energy balance public buildings, took place at Cordoba University. The project includes partners from Portugal, Spain and France, and aims to solve the challenge of integrating renewable energy systems (RE) and energy efficiency (EE) in public buildings (EPs) in the SUDOE region.
IN+/IST in collaboration with ADENE are seeking Master and PhD students in various areas of Engineering and related interdisciplinary fields, to develop research into the study and analysis of innovation incentives and policies for sustainable building, energy rehabilitation of buildings and promotion of energy efficiency.
