Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

The ICT-CMAC (Intelligent Decision Support and Control Technologies for Continuous Manufacture and Crystallisation) project has built, as part of the overall intelligent decision support platform, a researcher focused laboratory data handling platform. Here we report the approaches taken to capture data directly from instruments, process, store and report this into our ELN (Electronic Laboratory Notebook). This seamless flow of data eliminates errors and greatly reduces the need for manual, routine post-process analysis. Case studies are described to demonstrate the efficiency of this platform and to highlight the advantages of structured data with the potential of future machine learning and intelligent decision support.
