Universidad EAFIT is a private Colombian university located in Medellín. Originally founded by a group of the city's business leaders to establish an academic institution focusing on business administration, presently the university offers programs in other cities of Colombia , countries and has established international partnerships not only with academic institutions abroad, but also with multinationals, such as Hewlett-Packard. The university was key in bringing Hewlett-Packard's operations to Medellín, and functioned as its local headquarters before HP moved to its own building in the north side of the city.The university currently offers 21 undergraduate programs and more than 100 graduate programs in the areas of Management, Engineering, Law, Finance and Economics, and Science and Humanities. Universidad EAFIT was approved by the Colombian Ministry of Education on May 6, 1971. It has three branches in Bogotá, Pereira and Rionegro. Wikipedia.

The relationship between innovation and employment is addressed in this article through a model and empirical test at industry level for eight European countries in 1994-2004. We investigate this relationship for manufacturing and services and propose a Revised Pavitt taxonomy (covering both of them) in order to identify specific patterns of technological change and job creation and loss. The contrasting effects of strategies of technological or cost competitiveness are investigated using innovation variables from CIS2 and CIS3. Together with demand, wages and industry dynamics, they account for changes in employees and hours worked. The diversity in these relations across industries is also explored; when the model is applied to each Revised Pavitt class, different mechanisms of technological change and effects on jobs emerge. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.

This invention relates to a device with function for measuring volumetric changes in a substance. In particular, the device with function for measuring volumetric changes in a substance comprises a sensor that detects the amount of light intensity produced by a light source aligned with said sensor when passing through a column of two liquids which are immiscible among each other contained in a transparent tube, wherein the sensor and the aligned light source are mounted on an arm that travels on a vertically arranged rail, wherein the arm is attached to a strap which acts by means of a first and a second pulley causing the movement of said arm, wherein the movement of said pulleys comes from a motor and a gearbox and the entire mobility system is mounted on a frame. The device further comprises data acquisition means which record the change of light intensity and control the arm movement.

The present invention discloses a device for evaluating the technical condition of the tread of moving railway vehicles, especially for automated inspection of the loss of roundness of each wheel of circulating railway vehicles, in which a point of measurement is used which generates a signal proportional to rail deformation when a wheel arch passes over said point. Then the comparator system compares the measured signal with a wheel pattern without any roundness defects, which is then transmitted over a data network that associates the wheel identification information, with the wheel defect data generated by the comparator system each time the wheel passes over said measurement area.
