KnowHY aims to provide the FC&H2 sector with a training offer for technicians and workers featuring quality in contents, accessibility in format and language, practicality for the targeted audience, ease of scalability and update, and at competitive costs which make the training offer economically sustainable after project completion. Thanks to this project both OEMs as well as professionals can rely on third parties to provide a sound and effective first training, covering the understanding of the technology, safety and regulatory aspects and the practical theoretical as well as hands on contents. The Consortium consists of partners from European countries covering 7 of the most usual languages, as English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Dutch. Most of the partners combine a large experience in FC&H2 technologies and training or education, whereas FSV features an exceptional experience in developing e-learning training contents and courses. The targeted audience technicians, workers and professionals in general with a practical knowledge in installation, maintenance and operation of hydrogen and fuel cell applications. Customized courses and modules will target individual applications as residential CHP, FCEV, HRS, distributed generation, or back-up systems, adapted from country to country and form sector to sector but preserving homogeneity. KnowHy will take into consideration the findings of previous projects as HyProfessionals, TrainHy and H2-training. The following actions are planned: - Developing an online tool for accessing to the training contents via web. - Developing specific courses adapted to the different applications addressed and translating them in the required languages. There will be different levels of knowledge. - Carrying out practical seminars in existing facilities, such as demo projects, or labs adapted to the training. - Dissemination among FCH-JU stakeholders, OEMS, education authorities, and the potential users.

Todays technicians and students are the next generation of potential fuel cell users and designers, and education now is a critical step towards the widespread acceptance and implementation of hydrogen fuel cell technology in the near future. Development of training initiatives for technical professionals will be started aiming to secure the required mid- and long-term availability of human resources for hydrogen technologies. The future initiatives have to be carried out for various educational levels and including industry, SMEs, educational institutions and Authorities. Coordination and cooperation are key factors to fulfil the objective: develop a well-trained work-force which will support the technological development. Contact with other educational programs like Leonardo will be sought.


Patent
Valero | Date: 2016-04-20

The invention refers to a power trim motor shaft protector (1) including a shaft (21, 22, 23) and a cover (24, 25, 26). The protector includes a coupling set and bellows. The coupling set submits a main through hole for the passage of a part of the shaft (21, 22, 23) through that main hole, also including a contact zone at the coupling set, assigned to be united at a cover, and a coupling area. The contact zone is made of electrically isolated material. The bellows (4) contain one end adequate to be joined tightly to the coupling zone of the coupling set, and another end adequate to be in contact with the extreme end of the shaft, in such way the interior of the bellows (4) is protected from water.

Advances in cancer diagnosis and treatment have been groundbreaking, and we are now considering some cancers as chronic disease rather than fatal illness. This moves the point of focus in the fight against cancer from sustaining life towards maximizing functional capacity and quality of life (QOL). A critical element in this shift has been the rise of active rehabilitation in the management of cancer. In the past 10-15 years we have seen the emergence of significant evidence for the clinical effectiveness of active rehabilitation in cancer care, both in maximizing functional capacity and QOL, and preventing secondary recurrence. However, many barriers to implementation of active rehabilitation in cancer care exist due to its profound physical and psychological implications. Technology advances such as gamification based on biofeedback, and neuromuscular electrical stimulation, can help address some of these barriers but much must be done before we can effectively marry the technological capability to the unmet clinical need. In particular we need to understand specific challenges and patient journeys associated with cancer care and how we can help patients to leverage psychological tools to better engage in their own care. We then need to optimize technological tools to meet patients rehabilitation needs, and finally, to understand how to bring resultant solutions to market where they can have maximal impact on quality of care. This can only be done by a multidisciplinary programme of research involving close collaboration between researchers in academic, clinical and industry settings. CATCH is a deep collaboration across academic, business and clinical sectors. Students will benefit from intersectoral secondments, interdisciplinary communication skills, public engagement and outreach while working on a programme of interrelated core research projects addressing gaps in the knowledge and evidence base for technology enabled cancer rehabilitation mentioned above.
