Virtual Smart Winti Hero
This project involves the playful communication of Smart City themes in a high-end virtual reality environment. The VR game "Virtual Energy Hero", already developed by the ZHAW, is to be expanded into the "Virtual Smart Winti Hero". The further developed game for young and old will take up current and future Smart City themes (energy, mobility, ...
AuSuM - Automatic Supply Chain Monitoring
The project implements an online service for
companies to monitor suppliers for violations of
environmental, social, or governance norms. To do
so, a vast variety of sources, such as news outlets,
is monitored using machine learning and natural
language processing with near human-level
Redox Flow Battery Campus
FlowCamp is a research and training project funded by the European Union’s Marie-Sklodowska-Curie programme. FlowCamp involves 11 partner organisations from 8 different countries, who will recruit 15 PhD students for the project.
RESEARCH in FlowCamp aims to improve materials for high-performance, low-cost next-generation redox-flow batteries.
Advanced CharacTerIsation of Fuel cell stacks for automotive applications (ACTIF)
The project ACTIF aims at optimized operational strategies for fuel cell systems regarding the three main aspects efficiency, life-time and costs on the stack level. This will be enabled by enhanced understanding of fuel cell stacks on the basis of advanced time-resolved characterization techniques and mathematical modeling. The project is a ...
Currency hedging for SMEs and pension funds
Swiss corporates and pensions funds have been exposed to substantial currency risks in the last few years. We will build a new open-source innovation for currency trading strategies, that will be incorporated into a new product which can be used as protection against currency fluctuations.
