Identification and detailed characterization of ▫$PM_10$▫ sources in an Alpine valley influenced by a cement plant
Kristina Glojek, Katja Džepina, Griša Močnik, 2023, published scientific conference contribution abstract

Abstract: The contribution of traffic and wood burning to particulate matter (PM) across the Alps is widely recognized and studied (Herich et al., 2014 and references therein; Glojek et al., 2020). However, studies on valleys with cement production are scarce (Kim et al., 2003; Rovira et al., 2018) despite its large PM emissions and potential toxic properties (Erik et al., 2022; Weinbruch et al., 2023). We aim to identify and characterize sources’ contribution to the complex mixture of carbonaceous and mineral PM10 in a representative Alpine valley. Quartz filter samples of PM10 were collected daily from December 2020 to December 2021 and analyzed using different chemical techniques. In the same period equivalent black carbon (eBC) measurements were taken with the Aethalometer AE43. The measured species were analyzed using Positive Matrix Factorization (PMF) model (EPA PMF 5.0) with newly added tracers, i. e. source-specific eBC (Sandradewi et al., 2008) and organic species (2-MT, 3-MBTCA, phtalic acid, MSA and oxalate). The final PMF results were compared to online PMF-factors (SoFi Pro) derived from PM10 and PM2.5 elemental measurements (Cooper Xact 625i). Ten factors were identified at the site, including commonly detected biomass burning, traffic, nitrate- and sulfate-rich, aged sea salt and mineral dust. With the added additional organic traces, primary biogenic and secondary oxidation were recognized as well. In addition, two unusual factors were disclosed, contributing 10% to annual PM10. Namely, Cl-rich and a mineral dust-rich factor, which we name the cement kiln factor. We associate these two factors to different processes in the cement plant. The outputs of the study provide vital information about the influence of cement production on PM10 concentrations in complex environments and are useful for PM control strategies and actions.

Inhibition strategies of Listeria monocytogenes biofilms- Current knowledge and future outlooks.
Sandra Oloketuyi, Fazlurrahman Khanna, 2017, review article

Abstract: There is an increasing trend in the food industry on the Listeria monocytogenes biofilm formation and inhibition. This is attributed to its easy survival on contact surfaces, resistance to disinfectants or antibiotics and growth under the stringent condition used for food processing and preservation thereby leading to food contamination products by direct or indirect exposure. Though, there is a lack of conclusive evidences about the mechanism of biofilm formation, in this review, the concept of biofilm formation and various chemical, physical, and green technology approaches to prevent or control the biofilm formed is discussed. State-of-the-art approaches ranging from the application of natural to synthetic molecules with high effectiveness and non-toxicity targeted at the different steps of biofilm formation could positively influence the biofilm inhibition in the future.

Béla Balázs and the Haunting of Weimar Film
Eszter Polonyi, unpublished invited conference lecture

Abstract: We can all list the name of film actresses and film directors. Few of us will remember the name of a scenarist. And yet, the sce- narist might be responsible for every cut of every shot of every scene of a film. This talk is about the Weimar-era Béla Balázs, arguably the world’s most misunderstood film scenarist. In high demand for his world renowned theoretical understanding of the image, Balázs nevertheless is almost entirely unknown for his work in the film studio. Drawing on actual films by Balázs I have retrieved from archives, this talk hopes to recover not just the travails of the scenarist, but the aspects of the film image that he or she haunts.

MAST CHALLENGE LAB DISCUSSION
Jurij V. Krpan, Peter Purg, Sergi Badia, di, Simon Mokorel, other performed works

Abstract: The Challenge Lab discussion delved into the concept of the Situation Room – a setting within which an interdisciplinary group, interested in taking part in an innovation process is put in front of a challenge – to provide a technological innovation, an application of a technological innovation in the society, or a social innovation. Such process is to be facilitated by an “innovation catalyst”, a professional profile which is being built through AST study modules, such as MAST. The discussion gives a deeper insight of the terms such as: challenge lab, innovation catalyst, and art thinking.

ORGANIZATION OF PROJECT MANAGEMENT IN AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY IN THE FIELD OF RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
Sanja Ćorda, 2020, master's thesis

Abstract: The automotive industry is facing new crises due to market shifting towards electric vehicles. In order to prevail in the market, global manufacturing companies need to be consistent in providing innovative products and services. If market is changing fast, companies need to make changes with the same velocity. The companies should focus on modifying their work processes and tools which are already outdated and implement new ones which will make their business more efficient. If a company is developing innovative products where work processes are causing big overheads, the company cannot be successful. Furthermore, a hindering circumstance for multinational companies is lack of team interaction and language barriers what can lead to inefficient and expensive projects. This case study analyzes and presents the current organization of work activities and the roles within two main project management processes in one company: Product Development Process and Product Pre-development Process. Based on the project management’s professional literature, examples of best practices, semi-structured interviews with project team members, this thesis will analyze current waterfall organization and suggest an organization model with the utilization of agile SCRUM framework which could increase the effectiveness of the project management organization.
Keywords: Automotive industry, product development process, product pre-development process, waterfall organization, agile SCRUM framework
