Monash University researchers and national water utility companies are determining ways to produce hydrogen energy more sustainably by repurposing wastewater, via the Sustainable Hydrogen Production from Used Water project.
Victoria’s Department of Health, Melbourne Water, Water Research Australia and other industry partners have partnered with Monash University to track traces of COVID-19 in wastewater with “torpedo” passive samplers.
Monash University researchers have developed a fast, cheap tape-paper sensor test to detect bilirubin in jaundiced newborns, which could be commercialised for point-of-care diagnosis of neonatal jaundice. The joint development by Monash University’s Faculty of Engineering, the Monash Institute of Medical Engineering and Monash Health, aims to provide results in under 10 minutes at a cost of around 60 cents each. The small volume of samples … Continue reading Tape-paper sensor test by Monash could detect jaundice in infants
Monash University has secured $4.3 million in funding from the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC) to lead four major data and cloud infrastructure science projects, advancing the artificial intelligence (AI), data science and research technology capabilities at the university. The four projects focus on building scalable data environments for data-centric research, sensitive data and strengthening … Continue reading Monash University awarded funding for advanced technology research
Woodside Energy has teamed up with Monash University to develop a state-of-the-art “living laboratory” and a long-term research partnership to support Australia’s low-carbon energy transition. Woodside will contribute $16.5 million to the construction of the Woodside Building for Technology and Design, located in the Monash Technology Precinct. The Precinct houses Australia’s largest concentration of research … Continue reading Renewable energy research and teaching facility to be built at Monash University
Monash will use big data to enable their buildings to intelligently and automatically alter the internal environment, transforming the way staff and students live, work and learn at the university. Monash University and Honeywell Building Solutions have signed a collaboration agreement today to deliver one of the world’s first ‘cognitive office buildings’ bringing together next-generation … Continue reading Monash uses big data to create buildings of the future
The electricity sector is changing rapidly due to the adoption of renewable energy technologies and the introduction of the smart grid. This transition is requiring new thinking in the way energy is generated, transported, traded and consumed. The Monash Grid Innovation Hub has been set up to foster a collaborative industry partnership approach towards a … Continue reading Innovation hub addresses changing electricity needs
