INTERNATIONAL SCIENCE
AND EDUCATION FAIRS 2012/13
Internationalization – this is the term
used worldwide to reflect current tendencies in postsecondary education. Young
people who finish secondary schools think
about themselves more as citizens of the
world than peoples of nations. From this
perspective high studies in the international environment seem to be a fruitful
investment and warrant of satisfaction in
the future. Mobility of students grows
constantly which extorts changes in the
educational offer from the organizations
providing education on the university level. This applies also to Polish universities
and colleges which adjust to modern times
through giving lectures in foreign languages, promoting international exchange and
establishing co-operational relations with
other units on the field of education and
scientific research. Transfer of knowledge
and experiences is beneficial for all sides
of that agreement, namely academic institutions, students, scholars and employers.
Foreign students willing to study in Poland may also help universities and private
schools to remain active despite the world
crisis and baby bust which is an alarming
tendency for the last few years. This will
happen on condition that they find attractive majors and promising perspectives for
job careers.
The first steps taken to make studies
abroad possible might be discouraging for
the ones not positive about the final effect.
Search for information is time consuming
and require personal involvement. Fortunately there are professional associations
providing help for future students on various stages of making educational decisions.
A convenient way to gain information from
the main source is through participation
in the international science and education fairs being held every year in different countries of the world. Poland is one
of them with its education expo in Kielce,
Kraków and Poznań. This gives opportunity to present educational offer and promote
scientific achievements.
Here you find some useful information about the biggest associations and fairs
dedicated to international education across
the world and in Poland.

NAFSA
This nonprofit association was founded
in the United States in 1948 to help foreign
students, mainly from Europe, to accommodate and adapt to the American system of higher education. The organization
was first known as National Association of
Foreign Student Advisers (NAFSA) but in
1990 it was renamed NAFSA: Association
of International Educators. Its members
are professional educators who create the
space for international education on campuses and in organizations in America and
around the world. The office is located
in Washington, DC, but there are eleven
American agencies at the regional level.
The activities of the association are grounded in the volunteer work of its members
trained professionally to provide services
for visiting students and scholars. Current
strategic plan of NAFSA intends to develop
internationalization strategies on campuses
in particular, and popularise scientific researches into the impact of international
education on diverse sectors of public and
private life.
Every year in spring NAFSA organizes
its Annual Conference & Expo dedicated to
international education. This gives opportunity to share experiences, build up network
of professionals, promote new ideas, meet
and learn from other educators. The growing number of attendees (more than 8,000
this year) makes NAFSA Annual Expo one
of the largest and best recognized international education fairs. It hosts representatives of universities, colleges, academies
and comprehensive institutions as well as
presidents, chancellors, rectors and principals from across the world. The participants come to discuss the topics related to
global trends, knowledge communities, educational offerings, professional and leadership development, practitioners’ toolbox
and many others. The schedule combines
sessions, seminars and open meetings with
workshops, presentations and a dynamic
expo where offerings are displayed. This
year the conference was held in Huston,
Texas, from May 27th to June 1st. The next
will take place in St. Louis, Missouri, from
May 26th to May 31st 2013 and will focus
on ideals and impact in international education.
EAIE
The European leadership center
for internationalization of higher education is EAIE (European Association for
International Education) with the office
in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Founded
in 1989, it focuses on expertise and promotion of the idea through conferences,
training and everyday practices of expert
communities who specialize in specific areas of international education. These cover
access and inclusion in international higher
education, health care and health science
education, alumni relations, internationalization at home, network of European
summer schools and researchers within
international education. Like similar associations working in the European higher
education area, EAIE is a non-profit and
member-led organization which collaborates with partners all across the world and
exchange experiences with them. One of its
recent projects titled MODERN was a direct response to the Modernization Agenda
of the European Union and covered the
subject of future leaders and higher education management at all levels. The association also participates in EU-funded program ERASMUS and generates constant
interest in transfer of knowledge. Currently
EAIE is carrying out a research on generic
and specific leadership capabilities needed
by the future international education leaders in Australia and Europe. The results
will be presented in September during the
24th Annual EAIE Conference in Dublin,
Ireland. The conference will host higher
education professionals and practitioners
from across the world, namely leaders and
decision makers, rectors, managers of education programs, educators, researchers,
government representatives and service
providers. The participants will have an
opportunity to exchange knowledge, build
up new partnerships, discuss hot topics related to international education and gain
inspiring ideas.
APAIE
The organization working for internationalization of higher education in the
Asia-Pacific region is APAIE (Asia-Pacific
Association for International Education). It was founded at Korea University
in Seoul in December 2004 by university
representatives from thirteen Asia-Pacific
countries and regions, willing to establish
strong and beneficial cooperation. It is a
non-profit organization formed by international education professionals. Its activity
focuses on promotion and exploitation of
the idea of internationalization in and outside the region and bringing together international educators active in Asia-Pacific
region. Members of APAIE initiate and supervise the process of exchanging students,
scholars and researchers on inter-regional
level and provide institutional help if necessary. The association offers access to various educational resources and provides a
useful channel to exchange information
on all the matters related to international
higher education. Every year the association organizes a conference to share experiences and strengthen collaboration among
its members. The 7th Annual APAIE Conference & Exhibition was held at Mahidol
University in Bangkok, Thailand in early
April this year with the leading theme of
“University Social Responsibility for the
Benefit of Mankind”. The exhibition part
of the conference gave an opportunity for
direct contact with the speakers and benefactors of international exchange programs
and it was a showcase of products and services accessible on this market. The next
APAIE annual conference will be held in
March 2012 at Chinese University of Hong
Kong. It will be dedicated to the Asia-Pacific international higher education in the
21st century.
Important education fairs are not
limited to these three big events. Growing
interest in studying abroad among Asian
students makes this region pretty strong as
a host of science and education fairs. Two
expos are worth a special comment, namely
China Education Expo held in Shanghai
and Beijing and Education Expo in New
Delhi. They both share the same goal to
attract national and overseas education institutions and convince their visitors into
international studies through study abroad
presentations and free access to relevant
information. In 2011 China Education
Expo exhibited 20 pavilions from all five
continents and attracted 66,000 visitors in
seven cities across China.
European exhibitors and visitors
can participate in the International Fair
for Higher and Continuing Education in
Berlin. Each year in spring it gathers educational experts and enthusiasts of international higher education systems who give a
general overview and specific information
on higher education, internships and career-related topics. The Academic Cooperation Association (ACA) with the office
in Brussels is another important European
organization which promotes the idea of internationalization of higher education and
provides high-quality information, analysis and discussion on the related subjects
during its annual conferences held in late
spring.
In Poland this area has not been yet fully
covered. Polish education institutions meet
during fairs in Kielce, Kraków and Poznań
where they present their offerings of higher studies and participate in seminars and
workshops. International higher education
is mainly promoted under the auspices of
the European Commission which encourages National Teams of Bologna Experts
responsible for implementation of mutual
reforms in the domain of education. To satisfy this duty our national team of experts
organizes seminars and briefings hosted by
diverse cities to comment on Polish higher
education system.
Yet the field of higher education has
been recently reinforced by another state
institutions, namely research and development units (JBR in Polish terminology).
These are autonomous and self-governing
organizational units like research institutes,
research and development centers, laboratories and others, entitled to carry out
scientific research and development work.
Their duties also comprise spreading and
implementation of their scientific research.
They possess suitable research equipment,
material and technical facilities and staff
with proper qualifications. The results of
their research should find practical usage
in diverse sectors of national economy and
social life. They also participate in national
and international projects and EU programs
and cooperate with enterprises or administration, taking part in preparing legislation.
Well-equipped research and development
units can provide professional training and
diverse types of continuing education. It
is worth emphasizing that many Polish research and development units regularly obtain grants and have international patents,
and the results of their research find wide
range of applications.
* * *
To sum up we shall remark a great value
of internationalization of higher education.
Undertaking studies abroad gives young
people an opportunity to acquire knowledge and gain experience in the international environment. This may also increase
their competitiveness on the labor market
and help them to become leaders in the
global world. Internationalization of higher
studies in Poland means opening for the
tendencies which determine the present
world and it gives them a chance to remain
active during the crisis and baby bust. International science and education fairs offer an opportunity to promote universities
and research institutes, attract future students and establish international contacts.
Exchange programs for Polish and foreign
students and implementation of grant system make educational units more competitive and identifiable for international
employers. Needless to say that growing
number of Polish patents and achievements
both in exact and technical sciences is the
best stimulus for foreigners to study in Poland and take advantage of the knowledge
of Polish scientists.

I. Research ¿
¿elds and mission
The Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology (ICHTJ) was founded in
1983 as the result of the division of the Institute of Nuclear Research that had
been operating since 1955. The ĩeraĔ section, from its beginning in 1955, had
been participating in the nuclear energy development program in Poland. It
used to deal with such problems as: production of uranium and rare earths from
the domestic sources, processing of the burnt nuclear fuel using Russian fuel
elements from WWR reactors, processing of the solid and liquid radioactive wastes, development of the analytical methods for nuclear energy requirements,
the synthesis of new materials, spent radiobiology and radiological protection.
ICHTJ is the strongest Polish research unit that carries out activities in the ¿eld of radiochemistry, radiation chemistry, nuclear chemistry and nuclear chemistry engineering,
construction radiometric devices, environmental research, cellular radiobiology etc.
The basic research concerns radiochemistry, radiobiology, and radiation
chemistry, especially based on pulse radiolysis technique. Having nine electron accelerators used for sterilization, food preservation , modi¿
¿cation of
polymers and semiconductors, and other industrial applications, ICHTJ is
one of the most advanced R&D world centers in that ¿
¿eld. The outcomes of
ICHTJ research have been implemented in a lot of economy branches, particularly in industry, medicine, environment protection and agriculture.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) granted ICHTJ the status
of the „IAEA Collaborating Center” as one of 19 institutes from all over
the world (www-naweb.iaea.org/na/collaborating-centres.html). ICHTJ got
a number of POIG projects: * The Radiochemistry and Nuclear Chemistry
Centre for nuclear power industry and nuclear medicine; * Analysis of the
possibilities of using thorium in power reactors (The Coordinator: IEA);
* Analysis of the possibility of using uranium from domestic sources (in
cooperation with PIG -PIB); * New generation of radiometric measuring
instruments with wireless data teletransmission; * Elaborating of the multi-parameter „triage” test for the estimation of radiation threat for people
in case of big scale radiation accidents. ICHTJ is also a leader when it
comes to a number of obtaining European Union projects related to the
nuclear power industry. These projects are: Euratom and FP 7. ; * ACSEPT:
Actinide recycling by SEParation and Transmutation; ł ADVANCE: Ageing
Diagnostics and Prognostics of Low voltage I&C Cables; ł IPPA: Implementing Public Participation Approaches in Radioactive Wastes Disposal; ł
MULTIBIODOSE: Multidisciplinary Biodosimetric Tools to Manage High Scale
Radiological Casualties. ICHTJ carries out the Poland’s only PhD study in
the ¿eld of radiochemistry and radiation chemistry. The institute represents
Poland in the Reliable Nuclear Fuel Services Working Group (RNFSWG),
Euratom Fuel Supply Agency and the NEA - OECD radioactive waste board.
ICHTJ trains a lot of IAEA interns and issues Nukleonika (www.nukleonika.
pl) - the magazine (in English) which publishes nuclear research studies.
¿cate for the radiation sterilization unit
The institute has got the ISO certi¿
and two accredited laboratories.
II. The most important achievements in fundamental research
Innovative methods of biological dosimetry
The nuclear power industry development in Poland is one of priority economical goals of Polish government. As the consequence of the improvement of
energy security the increase of industry competitiveness is expected.
8
In order to provide a proper radiological protection for a whole
community, and especially for
nuclear industry employees, it
is necessary to improve already
existed methods of biological
dosimetry and elaborate new
ones, and allowing a quick estimation of people irradiation and
the categorization of irradiation
victims. This will help in starting
ef¿cient
¿
rescue action in case of
a sudden emergency. The Radiobiology and Biological Dosimetry Center performs innovative research concerning elaboration and validation of the new
biodosimetry tests that meet the requirements of modern science. The research contains the adapting already known methods and working
out the new methods of partial
or full automation. The research
carried out comprises cytological
methods, that is, the evaluation of
the frequency of dicentric chromosomes appearance, micronuclei
and gamma-H2AX corrective centers, and also the methods of molecular biology based on the transcriptome and proteome analysis.
The main research activity focuses on the improvement of he evaluation
methods of dicentric chromosomes as well as micronuclei and gamma- H2AX
corrective centers appeared as a result of irradiation. The molecular biology
methods based on transcriptome and proteome analysis are also studied. The
new biodosimetry methods and procedures making possible the quick assessment of radiation doses will be very useful for large population dosimetry tests
after radiation accidents in nuclear plants or terrorist attacks with radioactive
material, known as a dirty bomb.
New radiopharmaceutics based on scandium radionuclide
The research on application of scandium radionuclide to positron emission
tomography (PET) diagnosis and the radionuclide therapy was started in cooperation with the Nuclear Chemistry Department of the Mainz University
(Germany). The method elaborated is about getting 44Sc from a generator
44
Ti/44Sc and in a nuclear reaction 44Ca(p,n)44Sc. The received radionuclide
was used for labeling of the bioconjugate DOTATATE.
A
After performing a necessary research, the new radiopharmaceutics was successfully used in the
Bad Berka clinic for the diagnosis of neuroendocrine tumors.
The second scandium radionuclide - the emitter of ǃ radiation - 47Sc
can be an ideal radionuclide for the
therapy of small tumors and cancer
metastasis. In the Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology in the
cooperation with the reactor’s Maria
team (IEA) the production methods
of this radionuclide, ef¿
f¿cient extraction from the titanium target and connecting to bio-molecules was worked
out. The received radio-pharmaceutics is currently at the stage of durability
research and cellular research.
The received radio-pharmaceutics based on the scandium radio-isotopes
should let perform both the diagnosis and therapy of neuroendocrine tumors.
III. The most important applications
1. The production of biogas from agricultural products and wastes.
The Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology (ICHTJ) in consortium
with UNISERV S.A. - Katowice company are working together on the technology of producing biogas from organic wastes of agriculture and the
agricultural industry. As the result of this cooperation, the project feasibility study and engineering project that are the base for a currently being
built biogas plant of the 232 kWe electric power capacity were prepared.
Plant raw materials from the Roztocze National Park, substrate additives
from purposeful cultivations and food industry wastes will be processed
in the biogas plant. Project assumptions were created based on Polish
patent and the biogas plant will be constructed by Polish company. The
technology elaborated and implemented by ICHTJ covers the full process
of producing biogas and using it as a fuel for receiving thermal and electric energy. The methane fermentation process of methane will take place
in the circuit of two reactors. In both of them in which separately the
processes hydrolyze and anaerobic fermentation will be conducted. This
enables increasing the control of the production process and increasing
the ef¿
¿ciency of the received product, that is biogas, and the content of
methane in it. An important factor inÀ
Àuencing the fermentation process
is the proper design of reactors, especially taking into consideration the
process of blending that provides the proper circulation of reactive biomass. This was performed by using advanced calculating techniques and
the many years’ experience of practical solutions of process engineering
problems.

of leakiness by using radioisotope labels
2. The control and identi¿cation
For a number of years, the Diagnostic Methods Laboratory has been specializing in leak tightness control in the industrial installations by using
radioisotope labels. The leakage sites had been identi¿ed
¿
in the following
installations:
ł underground pipelines used for the transport of liquids and gasses, with
the sensitivity of 0,5 dcm3/hour for liquids and 5 g/hour for gasses (the
smallest identi¿ed
¿
leakiness)
ł valves for pipelines used for the transport of any type of media
ł underground and surface reservoirs
ł petrochemical and chemical installations
The inspection is carried out without the
dismantling of internal and external
linings, without the
necessity of building
scaffoldings and removing a catalyst.
The methods are
approved
by
the
Technical Regulatory
Of¿
¿ce in Poland. The
long-term experience
gained during the control of the installations in the Polish Oil Concern in
Páock, GdaĔsk Re¿nery,
¿
Oil Pipelines Exploitation Company in Páock and
others, guarantees the quality of inspection.
The cost of performing the leakiness inspection using radioisotope labels is
lower than the costs of traditional methods.
The
equipment
for producing the
methyl bromide
from the potassium bromide irradiated in nuclear reactor (photo
1) and the detector (photo 2) for
¿cation
the identi¿
of leakage in underground pipelines with scrubber
chambers is also
offered by ICHTJ
3. The automatic system for ground radiometric measurements
and the concentration of radon
The system for ground radiometric measurements comprises of radiometric probes (Fig. 1a) and probes designed for measurement of the concentration of radon in water (Fig. 1c) and air (Fig. 1b). The functional scheme
of the monitoring and communication system between measuring probes
and the central unit (a computer) is shown in the ¿g. 2. For the illustration there are three measurement probes in the scheme. The probes are
equipped with different units of the wireless and wire communication. In
reality, the system may consist of any number of measuring probes.
The communication using the WiFi unit between a measuring probe and
a computer takes place when the distance between them is less than 300
meters. When the distance is bigger than 300 meters then the GSM unit
is employed. This unit uses an internet access through the GSM cellular
telephony system. In such case the results of measurements are transferred directly to the internet and
can be presented in any place. Additionally, data can be transferred to
the central unit (a computer) through GSM links. When a measuring
probe is for example in underground
caves, where the wireless communication is not possible due to the
absorption of radio signal, a measuring probe communicates with an
RS-GSM relay station by cable serial
link RS485. Then the station automatically is connected to the internet using a wireless link. Up to nine
measuring probes can be connected
to a relay station. The central unit
is equipped with the WiFi
communication unit and an
access to the internet. The
software supervises over
a monitoring system and
makes possible the presentation of the results. Data
can be stored in an internet
database (BD) as well as on
a computer (PC).
4. The radiation modi¿cation
¿
of polymers
The research is focused on producing new polymer compositions from
known, mass polymers by the purposeful change of their physical, chemical and mechanical properties. Thus, the application areas of polymers
can be extended thanks to the improvement of their properties: heat
resistance, impact resistance at low temperatures, stress resistance and
elasticity. The technology of radiation modi¿cation
¿
of polymers offers unique possibilities. The works on the utilization of the “shape memory effect” of cross-linked polyethylene have been carried out in ICHTJ since
the 1970s.
They resulted in the implementation of polyethylene thermoshrinkable
tapes and pipes technology in the industry. Currently ICHTJ is working
on the radiation technology of the modi¿cation
¿
of cable insulations. The
main aspects related to radiation cross-linking of cable insulations are
following: a material selection for insulations/covers, dose distribution
in thin layers, homogeneity of the cross-linking process, dosimetry of an
electron beam and thermal effects induced by the ionizing radiation in an
insulation and ¿
¿laments made of copper and aluminum. The irradiation of
leads and cables by the electron beam is widely used nowadays because
¿cantly improves mechanical, physical and
the radiation processing signi¿
chemical properties of an insulation. The radiation technology is used in
the cable industry in order to improve abrasion, scratch and crack resistance, increase chemical resistance, and impact strenght, decrease the
combustibility and improve the electric properties of an insulation. An
important fact is that together with improving the quality of an insulation
it is possible to reduce its thickness. In Poland there are no producers
operating in the ¿
¿eld of radiation cross-linking of plastics. This compels
to import the electric cables that are designed for usage in a special conditions. It is worth noticing that Poland is a serious producer of electric
leads and cables in Europe.
Another important direction in which the works are conducted is elaborating the evaluation methods of ageing the polymer materials, which
are used in nuclear power plants. This concerns the development of the
chemical evaluation methods in the accelerated ageing conditions and in
real conditions in nuclear power plants. The decay of antioxidants (and
stabilizers) during the process of ageing, which speeds up degradation
of insulations and, as a consequence, causes the complete loss of usable
properties should be precisely monitored
5. Radiation sterilization
The ¿
¿rst works in the ¿eld of the radiation sterilization in ICHTJ, using
the LAE 13/9 electron accelerator took place in 1973. A big demand for
sterilization of medical utensils caused that in 1993 ICHTJ opened the Radiation Sterilization Station (SSR). The station is the only place in Poland
that runs the radiation sterilization process by using high energy electrons
from the Elektronika 10/10 accelerator (maximum electron energy is
10 MeV and the beam power - 15 kW). The station was designed under
international requirements and it fully guarantees the dose required by
a customer
In 2007 the Radiation Sterilization Station was granted the certi¿
¿cate of
the Quality Management System for a compliance with the PN-EN ISO
¿
has been renewed and it is
13485:2005 norm. In 2010 that certi¿cate
valid until 2013.
The SSR organizes the special courses and trainings on the radiation sterilization for producers of medical and cosmetic products and for employees of tissue banks. The goal of that activity is to disseminate the know
9
ledge on radiation techniques used for sterilization of different products
and to present process requirements resulting from valid standards and
decrees. SSR organized the dosimetry courses (in 2007 and 2010) for
the representatives of radiation centers from Central and Eastern Europe
within the framework of IAEA projects RER 8/010 and RER8/017. In 2010
SSR took part in the international intercomparison test on dosimetry measurements organized by IAEA.

The Industrial Research Institute for Automation and
Measurements - PIAP is the only producer of high quality mobile robots for counter-terrorism use in Poland.
PIAP’s robots are by far the most widely used in Polish
services responsible for security and defense, but they
are also proving very popular among international users.
So far, they have been deployed to Iraq, Saudi Arabia,
Germany, Switzerland, Lithuania and Belarus. The history of Polish pyrotechnical robots has begun in 1999,
police pyrotechnicians were taking part in the Institute’s
projects and giving their opinions as future users of the
robots from the very beginning.
PIAP GRYF is the latest robot engineered by the Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements PIAP. It has been designed in 2011 with a view to
increase functionality of PIAP’s other small robot - PIAP
SCOUT. Its main purpose is to replace humans in perilous locations, primarily when there is danger of explosion. GRYF has been constructed based on feedback
received from PIAP SCOUT’s users, i.e. Airport Border
Guard, Police and Fire¿ghters. As a result, the robot’s
mass has been increased to enhance stability when lifting heavy objects and, more importantly, the manipulator
has been equipped with additional degrees of freedom in
order to allow precise control over inspected objects.
GRYF’s users can continue to bene¿t from PIAP SCOUT’s
advantages such as: a hybrid, caterpillars-wheels, running gear. When necessary, moving wheels can easily be
dismantled in order to decrease the robot’s dimensions.
Conveniently, GRYF and PIAP SCOUT are steered from
a small, portable control panel in form of a suitcase or,
when only driving – from a remote control. The robots’
mobile bases are small and light – therefore easy to lift
and transport. They also have universal brackets and
holders which enable quick ¿tting of accessories. Moreover, the robots’ activation time is remarkably short (full
operation is possible in as little as 2 seconds). Mobile
base and control panel batteries are interchangeable,
which is very helpful in the ¿eld where the robot’s battery can be replaced with a less used one from the control panel. Both GRYF and PIAP SCOUT have a safety
clutch which protects them from damage resulting from
operator’s action (e.g. when lifting a load heavier than
the robot’s capacity) and a dedicated self-diagnostic
equipment for ef¿cient service and maintenance.
GRYF’s new design is innovative in many
ways, its advantages include:
1. an increased number of degrees of freedom.
Currently there are as many as seven degrees
of freedom (rotation of the manipulator’s base, movement of the ¿rst and second part of the manipulator’s
arm, rotation of the gripper, gripper’s movement in
the vertical plane, gripping and releasing as well as
0
manual telescopic extension of tthe second part of the
manipulator’s arm),
2. an increased load capacity of the manipulator (up
to 15 kg),
3. the possibility to install the manipulator in any
chosen position on top of the mobile base. It is made
possible thanks to a set of rails placed parallel to the
top part of the robot and clamps, which are located on
the manipulator’s base.
As a result of these solutions, GRYF’s users
can beneÀt from:
•
additional abilities and a means to lift bigger and
heavier objects with more precision and without fear
that the robot will suffer damage.
•
a possibility to change the position of the manipulator
and of other devices mounted to the mobile base.
•
greater stability of the robot when lifting objects.
•
greater stability of the robot when climbing stairs and
negotiation various kinds of ¿eld obstacles.
•
greater reach of the manipulator (along the forwardbackward direction).
In order to ensure high stability of the robot, PIAP has
designed a new, enlarged mobile base with a very strong
drive mechanism of the front caterpillars. It also boasts
a new type of caterpillars with an increased resistance
to chemical agents. In addition, the construction of the
operator’s post has been improved in relation to previous
versions.
GRYF can also be equipped with and adjusted to a number of optional devices such as
the following:
•
an automatic optic-¿bre cable winder,
•
disruptors,
•
X-Ray devices,
•
chemical, biological and radiological contamination
sensors,
•
explosive material detector,
•
containers or baskets mountable on the robot’s mobile base,
•
other devices already owned by the users.
The robot’s wheels can easily
be dismantled and mounted again.

Institute of Organization and Management in Industry ORGMASZ
would like to offer cooperation at the field of green – energy.
ORGMASZ with Partners offer the whole range of services aimed
at implementation of technologies as well as legal services.
Below please find key information concerning R&D implementation:
Quasi – Pyrolyze Consortium leaded by ORGMASZ
We are proud to announce that our institute signed an agreement between COMPUTEX ltd. and PROKAB S ltd. and established new cooperation on 15th May 2012.
The main purpose is to cooperate with extraordinary technology of utilizing wastes
by quazi mineralization method. Thermal transforming by mineralization method
is one of the best ways to utilize liquid and solid wastes. This method of utilization
produces electricity and thermal energy.
Why do we use Quasi Pyrolyze Process?
The offered technology consists of:
The main difference beetwen Pyrolyze and Quasi Pyrolyze Process is temperature.
Pyrolyze Process operates in 800 to 1100oC. On the contrary Quasi Pyrolyze Process needs only 400-450oC. The
final product of Pyrolyze Process is tar. Temperature of
Quasi Pyrolyze Process is lower and final products are
gases not tar.
Utilization of all kinds of wastes in the same installation is a novelty.
• the system which vaporize the water from bio sludge, regardless whether this sediment is initially
drained or not;
• the system for full disinfection of steam;
• the system of gasification (low – temperature quasi
- pyrolysis) of the organic residue, so – called dry matter;
• a catalytic reactor fully oxidizing organic compounds
to H2O en CO2 with efficiency of 99,9%;
• the system of heat exchangers, which recover catalytic, post – reaction heat to minimize energy expenditure (vaporization process);
• final filters which capture solid, inorganic particles
and metals as well as their compounds;
• a series of alkaline washers (only if required by
the chemical composition of the sludge)
The other advantages of Quasi Pyrolize
Process are
• sludge volume reduction (16 - 50 - fold)
• sludge mass reduction ( 20 – 100 - fold)
• total sludge dehydration
• total sludge deodorization
• total oxidation of organic compounds, including bacteria and viruses, to H2O and CO2
For our New Cooperation the wastes are not the
wastes. They are fuel. We would like to challenge the
view that the wastes are only a problem. It is the final
time to save environment for seriously. The new technology will support the plea for cleaner and healthier
environment.

Advanced electronic technologies_IT systems and hardware applications
Tele and Radio Research Institute
Our strength is knowledge but most important skill is the ability
to create innovative solutions to future challenges
The Tele and Radio Research Institute continues the scientifi
fic traditions of two institutes of long history, leading in the field of electronics and power engineering: the Radio Research Institute – the first in the country scientifi
fic-research centre with electronic profi
file, established in 1929 by eminent Polish radio-electronic engineer, professor Janusz Groszkowski and the Industrial Institute of Electronics – established in 1956.The basic objective of the Institute is to create
new solutions in the fi
field of electronics and to transform them into innovations for partners interested in manufacturing modern and competitive products.
The innovative solutions developed in Tele and Radio Research Institute create a broad offer
ff for the industry, including SMEs. More than 70% annual turnover
is acquired directly from the commercialisation of the research results.

INTELLIGENT COMPREHENSIVE VEHICLE
IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM - ISKIP
The Intelligent Comprehensive Vehicle Identification
System - ISKIP is a universal, development-oriented system for automatic identification of vehicles, based on parallel recognition of vehicle features such as category (car,
van, truck, bus, etc.), colour, make, type and registration
number.
The recognition of all the above-mentioned vehicle features is made only on the basis of an analysis of the vehicle’s photo, with no need for physical interference with
the structure and environment of the road or other point
of system operation.
The proposed concept is a solution unique in Europe and
globally. There is currently no other effectively operating
system in place to enable vehicle make, model, type and
colour to be recognised.
The system is based on a complex algorithm of neural
networks, analytical software and a database of about
500,000 vehicle photos.
The Intelligent Comprehensive Vehicle Identification System - ISKIP, can be installed both in a fixed version (e.g. at border crossings, major road junctions) and
in a mobile version (e.g. on vehicles of the Police, the Border Guard, the Road Transport Inspection Service – ITD,
and special services). The system can also be integrated
with other components of Intelligent Transport Systems,
i.e. with weigh-in-motion systems, average speed control
systems, red light violation detection systems, etc.
ISKIP is currently being implemented at the Internal Security Agency, the Police, the Central Bureau of Investigation and the Board Guard.

Certification Department and Technical
Approval Department
Technical fire prootection systems perform a
significant role inn buildings. Their applicationn
is mainly aimed att ensuring fire safety in a
building, which innvolves, inter alia, providingg
optimum evacuaation conditions, ensuringg
the safety of fireemen-rescuers and rescuedd
people, and minnim
mizing the material losss
caused by fire incciddents.
An effective fire protection in buildings reequires the applicaation and good coordinaation of, among othher things: Fire detectionn
and fire alarm syystems, Voice alarm systemss,
Smoke and heat coontrol systems, Fixed fireefighting systems..
The proper functioningg and operation of fire
protection systems deepends on a number
of factors, such as: the products used, the
correctness of the dessign and installation
(designing), the frequeency and accuracy of
systems maintenance, the joint cooperation
of systems, the techniccal parameters of the
devices used in these syystems.
Using products of which the parameters and properties haave been confirmed by
an independent certification and admittance
body by issuing produuct conformity certificates and certificates off admittance as well as
using the services of coompanies which hold
certificates of conformitty for these services is
necessary to ensure the fire safety of buildings, hence their users.
