Innovation in Research & Engineering Solutions

Founded in 2015, IRES is dedicated to furnishing decision-making tools and methodologies for environmental, safety, and risk assessment, as well as materials characterisation/digitisation and process optimisation. With three distinct and fully integrated departments – Sustainability & Circularity, Risk & (nano)Safety, and Data Science, Materials Science Digitisation – comprising chemical engineers, physicists, materials scientists, and data specialists, our goal is to deliver innovative solutions of the highest calibre.

IRES offers customised, on-demand solutions, often in the form of tools, which effectively identify potential business risks and offer sustainable pathways. Their approach encompasses the entire product lifecycle, conducting a comprehensive evaluation of social, environmental, and economic aspects in accordance with EU standards and regulations. Through collaboration with external organisations and related initiatives, IRES actively contributes to and advances the forefront of emerging technologies and strategic research trends. Their expertise and services cater to cutting-edge technologies such as Nearly Zero Emission Buildings (NZEBs), Renewable Energy Systems (e.g., photovoltaics, wind, and tidal turbine rotor blades), Additive Manufacturing, (nano-enabled) Composites, Water Pollution, and Wastewater Recycling.

Role within DigiCell

In DigiCell, IRES leads WP 1 (Data and Model Interoperability, EMCC, EMMC, and the Open Innovation Environment). IRES is particularly focusing on developing the Machine Actionable DMP (maDMP) for interoperable, automated, and standardised data formats within the open innovation environment (OIE). Acting as data manager, IRES governs data collection, storage, and access in compliance with EU legislation. This platform integrates AI predictive analytics with the database, utilising metadata for visualisation, and serves as an interface to the public and other communities like EMCC, EMMC, EMMO, and battery initiatives such as Battery2030+, BIGMAP, and WG1 of Batt4Eu, along with specific battery ontologies.
