Making progress towards a materials revolution
A small consultancy agreement facilitated by Cambridge Enterprise in 2012 led to some surprising results – and a major project that could prove world-changing.
Integrated Research Observation System for Clean Air (OSCA) is a project funded by Natural Environment Research Council working in conjunction with international organizations on measuring particle emissions from brake and tyre-wear. This specific role will create a searchable database of brake and tyre wear emissions by chemical and morphological structure from laboratory generated and publicly available data. Given the emerging large focus on brake and tyre wear this role will coordinate efforts with other leading academic, government and industrial groups to assemble the database.
The projects specific objectives are to:-
The post-holder will develop methods for characterisation of emissions of non-exhaust (brake and tyre) emission factors (mass, composition). The work will be housed within the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge and will report to Dr. Adam Boies.

Justin Bishop won an EPRSC Impact Accelerator Account Knowledge Transfer Fellowship to commercialise the ‘SRF Decarbonisation Toolkit’ in conjunction with the Freight Transport Association.
As part of the Fellowship, Justin will develop industry-strength versions of the technology for the ‘SRF Mapper’ and ‘SRF Simulator’
modules, integrated with the well-advanced ‘SRF Logger’ and ‘SRF Optimiser’ via a powerful database back-end. Justin will also develop a technical roadmap, business model and exploitation plan for the entire software suite. The Fellowship runs for one year, beginning in January 2018.
