The Manpower project
The Manpower Project is a European consortium engaging in research into new materials and devices that will facilitate extraction and storage of energy from a beating heart to power a pacemaker.
The collaborative project is coordinated by the Tyndall National Institute, and brings together a number of European partners including Fraunhofer - EMFT, Cork Institute of Technology (CIT), Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, IEF at Universite Paris-Sud, 3D Plus, Sorin and Communicraft Limited.
Communicraft's role spans the creation of a visual identity and website for the project (visible at www.themanpowerproject.eu) as well as the specification and production of software tools to facilitate the sharing of scientific data and online collaboration between both team members and the systems they employ. These web and desktop applications make use of web sevices and other web technologies to streamline information sharing between the various partner institutions.
"Communicraft's principle role on the Manpower Project is the management of digital communications and the design and development of online tools tailored to the very specific requirements of a medical science research project".
The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Program under grant agreement no. 604360
