The invention is based on a method for hand disinfection quality control comprising the steps of providing a hand disinfection medium comprising a light reflecting particles responsive to light mostly outside the visible spectral range of light, applying the hand disinfection medium comprising the light reflecting particles in a prescribed manner for a prescribed time, illuminating the hands disinfected this way with a light source providing light in a spectral range for activating the reflecting particles. The method according to the invention further comprises the steps of providing digital images of the hands from both sides, and evaluating the images by a computer program in order to determine the cleanness of the hands. The invention also relates to an apparatus for implementing the method and assessing hand disinfection quality. The invention uses an apparatus that comprises a rigid case with side walls enclosing a light source for providing light of a predetermined spectral range mostly outside the visible range. The case is further provided with an opening on the front wall for introducing the hands to be exposed to the light of the light source. An imaging device is also attached to the case for taking images of the illuminated hands.

The primary objective of the proposed project is to prepare the establishment of the Budapest Centre of Excellence for Smart Cities built on the innovation capacity, know-how and expertise of the project partners. The new organization, SMARTPOLIS, should contribute with knowledge creation, knowledge transfer, as well as with research, innovation and deployment projects in the Central-Eastern- European region to reach the European goals defined by Horizon 2020. The consortia organized for this proposal will be strengthening the research and innovation capabilities of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME), the operator of the new Centre, in this promising multidisciplinary scientific and technological field. The coordinator of the project the Hungarian Intellectual Property Office, a Government Agency, plays a very active role in Hungary as well as in the broader region in respect of innovation management and the facilitation of communication and cooperation between industry and academia. The advanced, highly reputable European partners, Fraunhofer FOKUS (FFI) and the Urban Software Institute, are forming a consortium for their cooperation in this project. They contribute organisatory and operational know-how, technical and scientific knowledge as well as project and implementation expertise which will be the foundation of the new Centre. The accomplishment of the short term goals, elaboration of the operating principles and associated business model of the new Centre, will be the target of this first phase of the TEAMING project. The work plan of the initial 12 months will comprise: Status assessment Forecasting future trends Elaboration of the operating concept of the Centre, including its scientific program and administrative model Development of the business model of the Centre for the initial 5 year period Establishment and implementation of a proper framework for communication

The main objective of the proposed CORONA II project is to enhance the safety of nuclear installations through further improvement of the training capabilities aimed at building up the necessary personnel competencies. Specific objective of the proposed CORONA II project is to proceed with the development of state-of-the-art regional training center for VVER competence (which will be called CORONA Academy), whose pilot implementation through CORONA project (2011-2014) proved to be viable solution for supporting transnational mobility and lifelong learning amongst VVER operating countries. The project aims at continuation of the European cooperation and support in the area for preservation and further development of expertise in the nuclear field by improvement of higher education and training. This objective will be realized through networking between universities, research organisations, regulatory bodies, industry and any other organisations involved in the application of nuclear science, ionising radiation and nuclear safety. The proposed CORONA Academy will maintain the nuclear expertise by gathering the existing and generating new knowledge in the VVER area. It will bring together the most experienced trainers in the different aspects of the area within EU and abroad, thus overcoming the mobility challenge that stands ahead the nuclear education and training community. The selected form of the CORONA Academy, together with the online availability of the training opportunities will allow trainees from different locations to access the needed knowledge on demand. The available set of courses will cover the whole range of training of VVER specialists from the university until reaching high professional skills and competences in the area.

The main, overall objective of the proposal is to establish the Centre of Excellence in Production Informatics and Control (EPIC) as a leading, internationally acknowledged focus point in the field of production informatics, management and control representing excellence in R&D&I. EPIC will be constituted and run through the cooperation of the Institute for Computer Science and Control, Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA SZTAKI), two faculties of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) and four institutions of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft (FhG) under the coordination of the National Innovation Office (NIH), Hungary as a governmental decision maker. The EPIC project will lead to: 1. The upgrade of MTA SZTAKI as existing Centre of Excellence of the EU. 2. The further development of the Fraunhofer-SZTAKI Project Centre for Production Management and Informatics (PMI), a joint initiative of FhG and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA), established in 2010. (The cooperating Fraunhofer institutions have been the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation (IPA), Stuttgart and Fraunhofer Austria (FhA)). 3. The extension of the present cooperation with two faculties of BME, i.e., the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (GPK) and the Faculty of Transportation Engineering and Vehicle Engineering (KJK), on the one hand, and with two additional institutes of FhG, i.e., the Institute for Production Technology (IPT), Aachen and the Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology (IPK), Berlin. 4. The close cooperation with SMEs as well as with large industrial firms. Due to direct, institutionalized and supported interactions with Fraunhofer, not only the scientific capabilities of the Hungarian partners but also their ability to transfer scientific results to industry-relevant applications will be greatly enhanced. By this way a high speed lift to innovation culture and performance in Hungary and the CEE region will be provided.
