Companies are currently working to bring to the market a catalogue of products that adapts to the needs of the user and that allows them to successfully position themselves on the market. Specifically, as far as companies in the toy sector are concerned, innovation and the creation of new products are fundamental. From the very first months of their lives, the new generations are used to coexisting with electronic devices (Tablets, Smartphones, PCs...), and this is why companies need new tools that make it possible to merge traditional toys with the digital world, creating a toy that is up-to-date, revalued and adapted to these new times. An evolution of the traditional toy that provides the user and more specifically the child target, with higher levels of motivation and attraction.View more
The intention of this multi-year project, developed by AIJU in collaboration with AIDIMME, is to design and manufacture a prototype for a photocatalytic reactor based on new photoactive reactants (TiO2 and ZnO nanoparticles doped with metallic ions and supported on reduced graphene oxide) which will make it possible to eliminate refractory pollutants in industrial wastewater.View more
The main objective is to carry out R&D tests on the new emerging technologies, in order to assess their applicability in the sectoral environment.
To this end, a technological observatory has been working throughout the year, analysing trends and new technologies. We also attended specialised fairs.
The main objective of the project is to design, develop and characterise the different components that form part of a zinc-air redox flow battery, in order to create a prototype for a rechargeable battery that can store surplus energy.View more
Research into children’s skills in the use of technological toys in order to generate and rapidly transfer design guidelines to companies – TECH-TOYS INTERACTION
The objective of this line of research at AIJU is to continue to develop a series of activities that can assess different fractions of industrial waste generated in the productive process of industries in the sector and in the industrial fabric of the area, and whose current destination is to end up in security landfills.View more
Designing safe playgrounds that are also attractive for children requires participative and multidisciplinary processes that are increasingly offering more innovative proposals that are in turn much harder to assess insofar as their risk versus their benefit to children is concerned.View more
The main challenges facing our current energy systems, and therefore our current energy technologies, are clearly defined by the policies set forth by such bodies as the European Commission. The following priority objectives were set for 2020:
- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20%.
- Reduce energy consumption by 20%.
- Increase the contribution of renewable energies to the energy mix up to at least 20%.
Collaboration agreement between IVACE and AIJU to strengthen the capacity and activity of AIJU to develop excellence in R&D, disseminate the results of the research carried out and facilitate and promote the transfer of knowledge to companies in the Valencian Community
The AIJU R&D Activities Plan for 2018 that was drawn up within the framework of the collaboration agreement between IVACE and AIJU included the following lines of research:View more
