  • Institutes of Technology Ireland | Cork pioneering medical device company wins the 2014 InterTradeIreland Seedcorn Competition
    stake taken Speaking at the final Margaret Hearty Acting CEO InterTradeIreland said The environment for start ups is exceptionally buoyant in Ireland and we are seeing the results of this with the emergence of a new wave of young companies in Ireland with strong potential for future growth Figures released by the Irish Venture Capital Association last week highlighted that seed funding for start ups has risen in the first nine months of this year Although these figures are comforting we cannot afford to get complacent when it comes to the economic recovery of the island and among others we look to the high potential start up companies along with the investment community to help continue to strive for economic growth and success The Seedcorn competition helps to foster an entrepreneurial mindset and provides winners with funding and support at a crucial stage in their development To date more than 195m in new equity funding has been leveraged by 2 150 companies that have reached the regional finals of the competition and it is through this type of entrepreneurship and innovation that indigenous local companies will continue to play a vital role in our economy We are looking forward to following and encouraging this year s winners in their future business development in the hope that they will replicate the success of those who have won in previous years AventaMed which is based in Cork has developed a novel medical device which allows grommets to be placed safely and quickly in an office setting eliminating the need for general anaesthesia and costly operating room time With 2 million children worldwide requiring grommet surgery each year it is the number one reason why children undergo surgery and have a general anaesthetic Olive O Driscoll CEO AventaMed Ltd said The AventaMed team

  • Institutes of Technology Ireland | Smarter Living for an Ageing Society – Great Northern Haven
    environment Part of the challenge of this project was the ability to monitor and predict any changes in physiological emotional or cognitive state that would negatively affect an occupant s quality of life The Netwell Centre at DkIT is an active research centre that develops innovative ways to enhance the quality of life and well being of older people The centre has expertise in an array of disciplines including the social and behavioural sciences health sciences computer science engineering and design The Centre for Affective Solutions for Ambient Living Awareness CASALA is the commercialisation arm of the Netwell Centre and conducts applied research in collaboration with industry Innovative technologies being developed at CASALA can be used to monitor changes in the physical condition and emotional state of occupants and can introduce interventions that may improve their wellbeing This technology is now being used in the Great Northern Haven development to test and trial new AAL prototypes The Great Northern Haven forms an important element of the CASALA Living Lab now part of the European Network of Living Labs ENoLL The outputs of this project will influence the quality of new housing provision and the adaptation of existing homes and related support services for ageing in place This will result in the more effective and organised delivery of services to older people in their homes As a result of the collaboration Louth is now leading a national programme as Ireland s first age friendly county Testimonials Louth is experimenting with change at a broad range of levels Working through the County Development Board the County Economic Forum and the Age Friendly Alliance we are seeking to apply innovative technologies to re configure services to enhance the quality of life of our older people delivering more effective efficient and sustainable services and

  • Institutes of Technology Ireland | Integration of RFID Networks with Public Mobile Platforms
    containers The system is a critical infrastructure for the global economy and lends itself to the application of wireless tracking solutions However container security tracking is an immature technology This is mainly due to the absence of industry standards and government regulation New measures to address the issue of security and improve supply chain efficiencies of container transportation are needed With the support of national and European funding Altobridge Ltd collaborated with CIDS in the design of a system that would enable container security tracking and management worldwide The research focused on developing a secure duplex communications system with RFID transponders and sensors that would be capable of reading and transmitting data over wide areas and in remote environments Combined with a series of pilot projects on ocean going container vessels Altobridge Ltd developed a functional system capable of bridging the communications gap between ships at sea and container transporting authorities Among the outcomes from this research Altobridge Ltd was awarded the 2006 Frost Sullivan Technology Innovation Award in the field of homeland security for container applications Testimonials This project was a major driver in establishing technology drivers for use of GSM cellular networks on merchant ships As well as crew welfare container tracking is seen as a crucial business driver for operators This project was important to establish technology that could help in container tracking It was important to Altobridge to get a proof of concept of such an application and as such the link with IT Tralee as a partner was key in achieving its goals Mike Godley Vice President Research Development Altobridge Ltd This project was particularly important to CIDS It allowed the members of the group to use their RFID and software development expertise to work on an applied research project with Altobridge that was mutually

  • Institutes of Technology Ireland | Automated Inspection of Optical Surfaces
    inspection to identify rejected lenses does not happen until the end of the process To facilitate the early prediction of lens quality and allow the removal of reject lenses at the start of the process Alcon engaged with CAPPA in research that was co funded by Enterprise Ireland As a result of the research an advanced optical inspection system that improves the manufacture and production line testing of IOLs was handed over by CAPPA to Alcon in March 2010 The system has passed all pre validation testing and is ready to enter the equipment validation stage including FDA approval The technology license is under negotiation Once licensed and validated the technology will be implemented in Alcon s Cork facility and rolled out world wide The successful technology will increase line yield and lens quality while freeing resources within the Production Group at Alcon This project was Alcon s first R D collaboration outside of the US It has had direct benefits in terms of yield quality through put resourcing and process knowledge and has raised the profile of the Irish facility within Alcon s company structure Testimonials A successful relationship has been forged with the group at CIT which is now bearing fruit and the company recognised the capability of CAPPA to provide value for money expertise in the area of process analysis and optical metrology Alcon hope to build on the relationship with CAPPA by exploring a follow up on the Innovation Partnership currently being undertaken with another metrology based project this year and by continuing to make use of the analytical capabilities at CAPPA in ongoing process investigations Mr Barry Walsh Process Engineering Manager Alcon Laboratories Ireland Ltd The collaboration with Alcon has been extremely successful for both parties Alcon have been very supportive at all stages of
