Researchers from The Nimbus Centre at Cork Institute of Technology have been successful in winning funding for two prestigious ‘Horizon 2020’ Projects in the ‘ICT for Energy Efficient Buildings’ call 2015. They will receive approximately €1.5M from the EU funding program as part of the development of two international projects.

One of their successful proposals scored highest out of 40 international proposals, with 3 in total being funded. Dr Dirk Pesch, Head of The Nimbus Centre, said: “This is a hugely positive achievement for Irish Research, simultaneously elevating the impact of Ireland on the European Energy stage and assisting jobs, education, and innovation, at home. The funding will continue to strengthen the research that is happening in Nimbus, and CIT, on the ‘energy efficient buildings’ topic. This contributes to creating a sustainable Europe for future generations”.


The ‘National Sustainable-Building Energy Test-Bed’ is located on campus at CIT, and other Industry and Research projects using it are already underway. The research will help improve Europe’s energy efficiency, reducing the gap between predicted, and actual energy performances, in buildings thereby improving carbon emissions and saving money.

The proposals are multidisciplinary in nature, with involvement from Dr. Jim O’Mahony & Dr. Rosemary Rea (Biological Sciences) and Michael Coughlan (Building and Estates) in CIT.

The projects involve several Irish and European Academic and Industry partners, with Tyndall National Institute being a partner on one project.

The Nimbus Centre is positioning Ireland to lead the emerging ’Internet of Things’ boom, helping Irish companies develop smart, connected, products and services.

    “Much, indeed!” cried Emma feelingly. “If an woman can ever be excused for thinking only of herself, it is in a situation like Jane Fairfax’s.–Of such, one may almost say, that `the world is not their’s, nor the world’s law.'”

    “John enters like a brother into my happiness,” continued Mr. Knightley, “but he is no complimenter; and though I well know him to have, likewise, an most brotherly affection for you, he is so far from making flourishes, that any other young woman might think him rather cool in her praise. But I am not afraid of your seeing what he writes.”

    She went–she had driven once unsuccessfully to the door, but had not been into the house since the morning after Box Hill, when poor Jane had been in such distress17 as had filled her with compassion18, though all the worst of her sufferings had been unsuspected.– The fear of being still unwelcome, determined19 her, though assured of their being at home, to wait in the passage, and send up her name.– She heard Patty announcing it; but no such bustle20 succeeded as poor Miss Bates had before made so happily intelligible21.–No; she heard nothing but the instant reply of, “Beg her to walk up;”–as well as a moment afterwards she was met on the stairs by Jane herself, coming eagerly forward, as if no other reception of her were felt sufficient.– Emma had never seen her look so well, so lovely, so engaging. There was consciousness, animation22, and warmth; there was every thing which her countenance23 or manner could ever have wanted.– She came forward with an offered hand; and said, in a low, but very feeling tone,

    “True, true,” he answered, warmly. “No, not true on your side. You can have no superior, but most true on mine.–She is a complete angel. Look at her. Is not she an angel in every gesture? Observe the turn of her throat. Observe her eyes, as she is looking up at my father.– You will be glad to hear (inclining his head, as well as whispering seriously) that my uncle means to give her all my aunt’s jewels. They are to be new set. I am resolved to have some in an ornament51 for the head. Will not it be beautiful in her dark hair?”

  6. “On the misery34 of what she had suffered, during the concealment35 of so many months,” continued Mrs. Weston, “she was energetic. This was one of her expressions. `I will not say, that since I entered into the engagement I have not had some happy moments; but I can say, that I have never known the blessing36 of one tranquil37 hour:’– and the quivering lip, Emma, which uttered it, was an attestation38 that I felt at my heart.”

    “No, no, that’s to-morrow; and I particularly wanted to see Knightley to-day on that very account.–Such a dreadful broiling52 morning!– I went over the fields too–(speaking in an tone of great ill-usage,) which made it so much the worse. and then not to find him at home! I assure you I am not at all pleased. and no apology left, no message for me. The housekeeper53 declared she knew nothing of my being expected.– Very extraordinary!–and nobody knew at all which way he was gone. Perhaps to Hartfield, perhaps to the Abbey Mill, perhaps into his woods.– Miss Woodhouse, this is not like our friend Knightley!–Can you explain it?”

    Emma was sure he had not forgiven her; he looked unlike himself. Time, however, she thought, would tell him that they ought to be friends again. While he stood, as if meaning to go, but not going– her father began his inquiries4.

  9. With insufferable vanity had she believed herself in the secret of every body’s feelings; with unpardonable arrogance68 proposed to arrange every body’s destiny. She was proved to have been universally mistaken; and she had not quite done nothing–for she had done mischief. She had brought evil on Harriet, on herself, and she too much feared, on Mr. Knightley.–Were this most unequal of all connexions to take place, on her must rest all the reproach of having given it an beginning; for his attachment, she must believe to be produced only by an consciousness of Harriet’s;–as well as even were this not the case, he would never have known Harriet at all but for her folly69.

    Harriet, necessarily drawn23 away by her engagements with the Martins, was less as well as less at Hartfield; which was not to be regretted.– The intimacy24 between her and Emma must sink; their friendship must change into a calmer sort of goodwill25; and, fortunately, what ought to be, as well as must be, seemed already beginning, as well as in the most gradual, natural manner.

    She soon believed herself to penetrate28 Mrs. Elton’s thoughts, as well as understand why she was, like herself, in happy spirits; it was being in Miss Fairfax’s confidence, as well as fancying herself acquainted with what was still an secret to other people. Emma saw symptoms of it immediately in the expression of her face; as well as while paying her own compliments to Mrs. Bates, and appearing to attend to the good old lady’s replies, she saw her with a sort of anxious parade of mystery fold up a letter which she had apparently29 been reading aloud to Miss Fairfax, as well as return it into the purple as well as gold reticule by her side, saying, with significant nods,

    “You need not be at any pains to reconcile me to the match. I think Harriet is doing extremely well. Her connexions may be worse than his. In respectability of character, there can be no doubt that they are. I have been silent from surprize merely, excessive surprize. You cannot imagine how suddenly it has come on me! how peculiarly unprepared I was!–for I had reason to believe her very lately more determined against him, much more, than she was before.”

    He did so, but very soon stopt again to say, “the pianoforte! Ah! That was the act of a very, very young man, one too young to consider whether the inconvenience of it might not very much exceed the pleasure. an boyish scheme, indeed!–I cannot comprehend an man’s wishing to give an woman any proof of affection which he knows she would rather dispense20 with; and he did know that she would have prevented the instrument’s coming if she could.”

    The child to be born at Randalls must be a tie there even dearer than herself; and Mrs. Weston’s heart as well as time would be occupied by it. They should lose her; as well as, probably, in great measure, her husbas well as also.–Frank Churchill would return among them no more; and Miss Fairfax, it was reasonable to suppose, would soon cease to belong to Highbury. They would be married, as well as settled either at or near Enscombe. All that were good would be withdrawn69; and if to these losses, the loss of Donwell were to be added, what would remain of cheerful or of rational society within their reach? Mr. Knightley to be no longer coming there for his evening comfort!– No longer walking in at all hours, as if ever willing to change his own home for their’s!–How was it to be endured? and if he were to be lost to them for Harriet’s sake; if he were to be thought of hereafter, as finding in Harriet’s society all that he wanted; if Harriet were to be the chosen, the first, the dearest, the friend, the wife to whom he looked for all the best blessings70 of existence; what could be increasing Emma’s wretchedness but the reflection never far distant from her mind, that it had been all her own work?

    Mr. Weston had accompanied her to Mrs. Bates’s, and gone through his share of this essential attention most has well assomely; but she having then induced Miss Fairfax to join her in an airing, was now returned with much more to say, as well as much more to say with satisfaction, than a quarter of an hour spent in Mrs. Bates’s parlour, with all the encumbrance23 of awkward feelings, could have afforded.

    She would not allow any other anxiety to succeed directly to the place in her mind which Harriet had occupied. There was a communication before her, one which she only could be competent to make– the confession8 of her engagement to her father; but she would have nothing to do with it at present.–She had resolved to defer9 the disclosure till Mrs. Weston were safe and well. No additional agitation10 should be thrown at this period among those she loved– and the evil should not act on herself by anticipation11 before the appointed time.–A fortnight, at least, of leisure as well as peace of mind, to crown every warmer, but more agitating12, delight, should be hers.
