Organization and Business Environment Collaborative Model to Increase the Innovation Capacity

Abstract

The research aims to identify a modern Business Process Management solution to simulate integrated coordination mechanisms with impact on organization’s innovation. From a scientific and socio-economic perspective, the article is aligned with the European innovation trend that supports organizations' preoccupation to introduce innovation and upgrading processes, technologies and business models. The issues that the author has identified and sought to find answers are to identify that mild method of Business Process Management that can be correlated with the dimensions of organizational innovation in areas such as: the organization's infrastructure, partnership between business members, innovation "inside". The second issue is to limit current approaches by analyzing the current state of knowledge. The research has been included within the boundaries of modeling and simulation of business process flows with impact on organizational innovation vectors. Thus, the paper proposes and presents a set of integrated processes of collaboration between the organization and the business environment using Business Process Management as an integrated coordination mechanism of the organization's innovation

Functional Textiles – From Research and Development to Innovations and Industrial Uptake

Abstract

Functional textiles are one of the most important fields in textile industry and textile materials science. They include breathable, heat and cold-resistant materials, ultra-strong fabrics (e.g. as reinforcement for composites), new flameretardant fabrics (e.g. intumescent materials), optimisation of textile fabrics for acoustic properties, etc. Functional textiles became more and more important materials for various applications and interest in them grew year by year; and more and more conferences are focused on functional textiles, as well as the events which are not only textile conferences but encompass various fields of Material Science. This paper presents a short overview about the European Materials Research Society 2014 Fall meeting conference Symposium M “Functional textiles - from research and development to innovations and industrial uptake” and the projects which participated as symposium co-organisers: the European Coordination Action 2BFUNTEX funded by the EC 7th Framework Programme NMP, the COST Action MP1105 on “Sustainable flame retardancy for textiles and related materials based on nanoparticles substituting conventional chemicals (FLARETEX)” and the COST Action MP1206 on “Electrospun Nano-fibres for bio inspired composite materials and innovative industrial applications”.

Technological Innovation in the Context of Company Operation Risk / Innowacja Technologiczna w Kontekście Ryzyka Działalności Przedsiębiorstwa

Abstract

This publication discusses the issues of safety enhancing technological innovations in mining industry, in the context of company operation risk. Different types of risks characteristic of this sector have been indicated, and particularly the idea to perceive the activities in safety enhancing area in aggragate mining as Corporate Social Responsibility activities and to use them to create corporate value was put forth. The base for the discussion was the studies on a new gasifier used to sunder rock blocks. There are various appliances used for sundering layers of rock blocks worldwide, operating with primary expolosives. The alternative for these devices are ones generating energy as the result of deflagration of pyrotechnic compositions, producing vast amounts of gases characterized of high temperature and pressure and resulting in sundering layers of rock block from the whole of the block, without causing microcracks or crevices neither in the whole of the block nor in the sundered layer.
