Research and Development
Research and development plays an integral role within TE Laboratories. Research is carried out in all areas of the company’s activities and TelLab continuously aims to be at the forefront of unique technology and research. Dedicated R&D offices and laboratories exist within TelLab, and the R&D staff is comprised of multiple postdocs, four PhD students and a number of MSc students. This multidisciplinary team facilitates TelLab in achieving high quality research in an efficient manner. Currently, TelLab are involved in multiple nationally funded research projects, three H2020 funded projects, and seven EU FP7 projects as both a project partner and coordinator.
ONGOING PROJECTS INCLUDE:
This project aims to develop and test a passive air contamination monitoring sensor composed of devitalized moss. (http://www.mossclone.eu/)
This project aims to develop drinking water sensors based on microelectronic sensors for widespread use. Sensors for measuring conductivity, pH, bio-fouling, redox-potential, chlorine and pressure will be developed. (http://www.widesens-project.eu/)
This project will develop an array of cost-effective sensors interoperable with international existing ocean observing systems to meet EU policy requirements. (http://www.commonsenseproject.eu/)
TelLab is one of the 15 partners through a funded 3 year PhD project which aims to develop innovative in-situ analysers to detect pesticides, petroleum, PCBs and dioxins in water using microfluidic technology.
H2020-MSCA-ITN-2015This 3 year PhD is aimed at training an early stage researcher in cutting edge research skills and innovative approaches to manage soil and groundwater impacts from agriculture for sustainable intensification.
