Prof. Jordi Colomer Feliu. Department of Physics, University of Girona, Catalonia, Spain.
I have developed a range of research that can be divided in three areas (last 5 years):
- Sustainable education in higher education, in the areas of reflective and cooperative technologies to foster students' competences (formal and non-formal education). School readiness to foster STEAM competences with feedbacks between mathematics, science and dance in primary and secondary education.
Associated project: CREACIENCIA: Dialogues between Science and visual and spatial Dance activities to activate creativity for primary school students. Funded by the Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología. Partnership with the UdG Department of Specific Didactics, the UdG Institute of Sciences Education and the City Council of Banyoles. Budget: 43,000.00 euros.
Associated project: Application of new methodologies for competence learning in the rural school of Abay Mado (Ethiopia) and in the schools in Ahmara region (Ethiopia) and in Emboret (Tanzania). Funded by the Area of Cooperation for Sustainable Development at the UdG. Budget: 39,508.52 euros.
- Research on coastal sea habitats and the ecosystem services they provide, especially for canopies of Posidonia oceanica in the Mediterranean Sea. Field observations, and scale-modelling approaches are combined to understand the feedbacks between hydrodynamic coastal processes (waves, turbulence, gravity currents), plants (density, shape, rigid vs flexible blades, ...) and sediment transport. Research also focus on the hydrodynamics of fragmented canopies and geomorphological processes.
Associated project: FRAGMENTUM: Hydrodynamics in fragmented wetlands. Funded by the Ministerio de Economía, Industria y Competitividad. Partnership with the University of Lancaster and the University of Western Australia. Budget: 65,200.00 euros.
- Integrated and innovative scalable fully ecological sanitation solutions that address water and resource savings in rural communities, for agricultural industries, for sustainable home-builders or collective housing owners for developing countries worldwide. I am involved in optimizing the purification mechanisms performed by Daphnia sp. and especially their role in the reduction of suspended solids and pathogen bacteria. The purification is controlled by a set of abiotic and biotic parameters that can be summarized in the following chart:
Associated project: INNOQUA: Innovative Ecologial on-site Sanitation System for Water and Resource Savings. Funded by the European Comission, Horizon 2010- Research and Innovation Framework Programme. Partnership with Nobatek, Eurecat, R2M Solution SRL, National University of Ireland/Galway, Aqua Enviro Limited, Universidad de Cuenca, DE5 Services, Bremen Overseas Research and Development Organisation, Water Technology Engineering, Black Country Housing Group Limited, Institutul National de Cercetare Dezvoltare, Pentru Ecologie Industriala, Sc ritmic Com SRL, Inbrooll Industries, Scottish Water, Helio Pur Technologies, Berson Milieutechniek B.V., LombriTek association, Grace Yepez, Universidad Católica de Santa Maria. Budget: 6,997,026.00 euros.
