Three dimensional printed ceramics for concept modelling and bespoke production

Three dimensional printed ceramics for concept modelling and bespoke production

Abstract. Many ceramic manufacturing companies use three- dimensional (3D) computer-aided design (CAD) software and 3D printing technologies to produce design concept models for evalu- ation. Although the value to the design process is limited due to the types of material that can be printed, conventional modeling and processing methods still need to be used to achieve a design concept model in a real material. A solution is desired that delivers a prototype that looks and feels like the final product and which can be fully tested for functionality, glaze, and decoration. In collaboration with Denby Pottery as the industrial partner, this research project has refined and enhanced the 3D ceramic printing process already developed at the University of the West of England, and has enabled the production of concept models of new design ideas in a real ceramic material, printed directly from CAD data, fired, glazed, and decorated. c d 2013 Society

The status and characteristics of university-industry collaboration in a research university

The status and characteristics of university-industry collaboration in a research university

The university’s role is progressively changing: universities not only have to cope with research and teaching, but also are having to become poles of potential economic and social development [1]. A new range of activities, described as technology transfer and research exploitation is gaining ground and leading to increased interactions with the industrial sector [2, 3]. In the last twenty years, the effort of universities to collaborate with industry and foster knowledge transfer has progressively increased [4]. Links between university and industry are an important mechanism to develop and commercialize the fruits of university research. Such links are also seen as contributing to technological progress and economic well-being [5, 6]. University–industry linkages (UILs) offer an array of benefits for the parties involved and the economy at large [7].

University-industry research collaboration in the Brazilian oil industry: The case of Petrobras

University-industry research collaboration in the Brazilian oil industry: The case of Petrobras

However, this study has certain limitations owing to the rather narrow analytical approach adopted in this paper. UICs are at best a partial proxy for university- industry research collaboration and, clearly, will never provide a complete picture of it. In view of these limitations, it should be stressed that our data analysis only allows us to address general features and trends of Petrobras-university research efforts and its scientific knowledge base. We cannot address many other factors not captured by UIC data that are likely to also impact university-industry linkages, such as the corporative strategy, and industrial and academic researchers’ motivations to collaborate. In addition, we use a narrow definition of university-industry collaboration that does not include other public research organizations (PROs). Another limitation is that our proxy of collaboration includes only published papers in the WoS database, which means that we miss other relevant research outputs, such as patents and other forms of publications or papers in journals not included on the database.

A Study On Relationship Between University-Industry Collaboration On Eco-Innovation Development

A Study On Relationship Between University-Industry Collaboration On Eco-Innovation Development

It was only late as late as the 1990s that Japanese people becoming serious about establishing mutually supportive relations between university and industry collaboration. The direct cause if this change was the heavy loss of competitiveness by Japanese firms to the United States in such keys sectors as information technology and biotechnology. China and the Korea countries that gain momentum in industrializing, were become new threats to Japanese industry. The response to these new challenges was to improve industrial structures and boost the competitiveness of Japan industry. Companies began to show increasing interest in utilizing the knowledge of universities rather than doing all of their research on their own. Under the pressure of global competition, utilizing the most advanced knowledge developed by universities in a speedy fashion became a matter of the highest priority for Japan. On the part of universities, there have been increasing indications that Japanese universities are failing behind foreign universities in their levels of academic research because they have not interested with industries, which employ equally competent scientist. At the same time, there is still a strong sense of alertness, often legitimate, that universities should not give way to the pressure to contribute to commercial gains at the expense of its academic and educational missions. Many Japanese universities are considering and reviewing their policies to find the suitable balance.

agriculture, construction, transport, and other service industries into highly productive sectors (David, 2006). Thus they do not have any doubt for this research collaboration to get maximum out of it from adoption to commercialization stage. For this purpose, research collaboration between university and industry is very important. The mere presence of conventional economics inputs like land, labors or capitals are no longer enough to ensure economic growth in a nation. What is now important is the rationale application of these resources to productive purposes by means of technology. Both the industrialized and developing nations recognize the fact that technology plays a significant role in economic growth and the improvement of living standards of their countries. It is widely recognized that transfer of technology has played a vital role at industrial progress and overall economy of the nation. And it is possible only from university-industry research collaboration.

View of Current Reflections on Collaborative and Engaged Research | Journal of Research Practice

We present a case study on how the Research and Capacity Building infrastructure of the Vancouver Island Health Authority (Island Health) in British Columbia, Canada facilitated a form of research education by connecting a community-health care provider and a graduate student. Additionally, we discuss the implementation of a management framework introduced by the Canadian College of Health Leaders (Dickson, 2010), which provides useful guidance for effective and meaningful research collaboration. This framework emphasizes on the key knowledge and skills required to lead at all levels of an organization. It aligns the competency frameworks and leadership strategies in Canada’s health sector (Dickson & Tholl, 2011).

Interorganisational collaboration in Academic Health Science Centre: a case study on King’s Health Partnership

Interorganisational collaboration in Academic Health Science Centre: a case study on King’s Health Partnership

It is clear from all participants that each partner in KHP has different institutional objectives, vision, priority and structure, hence arguably that there is a considerable organisational distance. For example, the participants highlighted that NHS is facing unprecedented financial challenges with raising demand for their service. Even though NHS is keen to promote and support research as one of their core activities, there is insufficient resource made available to support research and the capacity to undertake research varies across department. One participant discussed with the current funding cut and the rising demand for the NHS service, NHS is simply struggling to support the tripartite mission of KHP, hence research simply cannot be prioritized. Clinician will always “prioritise their survival before collaboration; where most have already reached their maximum possible capacity doing ward rounds and out-patient”.

Leadership in research across academia and practice

Leadership in research across academia and practice

, social, political, or economic challenge facing the nation and lurking in the background, hardly noticed and rarely discussed, is the arcane matter of architecture.” This was pointed out to us again yesterday in Dr. Luebkeman’s address when he used examples such as energy consumption studies statistics that have been developed with the respect to building construction. Along with the afore mentioned pervasive nature of architecture, there are a growing number of research opportunities and challenges facing the profession today. This dialogue is being framed by numerous leaders in an effort to position education and its practice to respond effectively. The solution to the dilemma lies within our ability to properly analyze the situation and act accordingly. Tom Fisher, Dean of the College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture at the University of Minnesota, has recommended several strategies in an address he gave years ago to the AIA board of directors, titled: “ The Once and Future Profession of Architecture”. Dean Fisher outlined three pairs of strategies, all of which effect research. Fisher stated:

Research collaboration in health management research communities

Research collaboration in health management research communities

According to the N-clique and M-core analysis, inter- national collaboration in health management is beco- ming an irresistible trend. Previous research showed that economic factor will improve the research collaboration [47,48]. And as shown in Figure 6, similar to previous study in oncology or cardiovascular field, those economic powers such as USA, UK are in the center of the network, which play an vital role in the information dissemination and resources control in health management. Although in developing countries/regions, such as China, research about health management started late, it has quickly be- coming popular, and a broad collaboration network is forming. At the same time, other countries/regions which are less developed than China should also actively learn and cooperate with economic powers to enhance their sci- entific research level, change their position in information dissemination and control in this field, and to achieve the global balance development of health management.

the time of a disaster event. Once again, the goodwill and voluntary commitment of companies is required to establish MoUs, and while they are not contractually binding or may not specify cost recovery, they do provide a sound basis for communication and action at a real time of need. An excellent example of a MoU bringing together commercial partners is in Otaki, north of Wellington. It is considered likely that the river bridge that crosses State Highway 1 will collapse in a major earthquake. Nearby are two companies who have agreed to actively partner in the construction of an alternative bridge to restore this transport route. The New Zealand Transport Authority (NZTA) has facilitated this non-binding MoU with the input of the regional LUC Project Manager. The outcome is a win- win situation for the companies, the CDEM sector and the Wellington regional population. This is a good example of a proactive initiative that contributes to the drive for readiness as part of the 4Rs CDEM strategy (Interview 5). Another good example of collaboration is the development of a shipping MoU. As an immediate response to a major earthquake that disrupts transport links to Wellington, the parties to this MoU have agreed to mobilise barges from Marlborough to manage the flow of logistics required to sustain the Wellington population.

Concurrent Collaboration in Research and Development

Concurrent Collaboration in Research and Development

International collaboration in research and development (R&D) is becoming increasingly important in creating the knowledge that makes research and business more competitive. Organizations are currently facing critical and unprecedented challenges in an ever dynamic, constantly changing and complex business environment [1]. All types of economic activities are moving in the direction of globalization [2]. From the other direction, the growing internationalization of R&D activities challenges multinational corporations (MNCs) to formulate technology strategies and manage increasingly diffused and assorted networks of R&D laboratories and alliances in the context of disparate national institutions [3]. By the emergence of the increasing de-centralization and globalization of work processes, many organizations have responded to their dynamic environments by introducing virtual teams. Additionally, the rapid development of new communication technologies such as the Internet has accelerated this trend so

Entering into a Community-University Collaboration

Entering into a Community-University Collaboration

As for the alternatives that were needed but would never be served by the project’s scope or goals, time is already seeing some of them emerge in subsequent community-based efforts. For example, Action Resources International has taken the seed of collaborative pathway modeling planted within the Food Dignity project and has begun to utilize it as a unique tool for community-based and -led collaboration research, development, imple- mentation, and evaluation. Feeding Laramie Valley is serving as a statewide AmeriCorps VISTA pro- gram through which VISTA members work full time to assist with sustainable capacity-building for emerging grassroots social change efforts. The organization has joined forces with groups across Wyoming to begin development on multiple food hub sites.
