Many thanks to the WKK Team (Wirtschaftskammer Kärnten) for inviting us to present our i-MON technology to ABA Austria representatives based in North and South America. We were able to present our passive, wireless sensors, which can be integrated into concrete for in-situ measurement of temperature and deformation. Our technology can mainly be used for Structural Health Monitoring applications (monitoring of bridges and tunnels).
Many thanks to the organizers of the International Symposium on Smart Materials for inviting us to present our latest research results in the field of Smart Sensors for Smart Concrete, as part of a session fully dedicated to emerging and innovative sensor technologies. It was a real pleasure being there. Click here for more on this Symposium!
As part of the “Journées Européennes Vertes de Vienne, 2023”, Prof. Pascal Nicolay (Team CiSMAT) was invited to give a talk at the French Embassy, in Vienna. The talk was dedicated to smart materials for the cities of the future. This talk was preceded by another, given by Prof. Stéphane Mangin (IJL, France), on the Internet of tomorrow and the problem of data storage. The presentations were followed by a podium discussion, where the audience was able to interact with both speakers, as well as with a panel of young researchers (incl. two CiSMAT researchers, Dr. Claude Humbert and MSc. Pierre Jeltiri).
BABEG just released the Green Digital Research Map of Carinthia!
CiSMAT is one of the actors selected by BABEG, for its activities in the field of new technologies for a sustainable industry.
Presentation of our research topics and results at the “Kick-off event, Bildungshub”, in Spittal (28.11.2022).
The Gustav Mahler Private University (GMPU) starts a new research center in Klagenfurt, the Digi.Music.Lab! The focus will be on the use of new digital technologies to improve music learning, instrument playing and performances, music creation (e.g., composition), and self-promotion. CiSMAT is already identified as one of the potential partners of the Digi.Music.Lab, for future joint R&D projects! more
Open for submission!
